Add this to your Christmas list! Neuro-engineering company Emotiv Systems
have developed a headset that will allow you to control your electronic
games using your thoughts alone. It's expected to market for around
$299 next Christmas.
According to company president Tan Le, Emotiv's software algorithm
"unfolds the cortex and takes us closer to the source of the signal."
According to their website company overview: "while Emotiv Systems is
currently focusing on the electronic gaming industry, the applications
for the Emotiv technology and interface span an amazing variety of
potential industries -- interactive television, accessibility design,
market research, medicine, even security -- and plans for introducing
Emotiv into these realms and more are already in the works".
