Play Game with Your Brain! Literally

Your handheld joystick or game controller may soon be replaced by a very sophisticated helmet, a helmet that 'Reads' your brain.
That's what Emotiv systems, the developers of this technology are upto.

According to Emotiv, their brain computer interface technology can detect and process a human's conscious thoughts and unconscious emotions.

The helmet is fixed with multiple sensors to detect brain signals which are interpreted with a suite of software programs.

The Emotiv website further adds
"The technology, which comprises a headset and a suite of applications, allows computers to differentiate between particular thoughts such as lifting an object or rotating it; detect and mimic a user’s expressions, such as a smile or wink; and respond to emotions such as excitement or calmness".

Emotiv has just launched the Emotiv Development Kit for game developers to make games that repond to a player's emotion, thoughts and expressions.
Guess we'll get something out of this in the near future.

This technology is in a very nascent stage, but pregnant with a whole lot of amazing possibilities.
Just imagine! No keyboard or mouse to operate your computer and what will it bring to an already expanding virtual world.
There's a long way to go and a lot or hurdles to cross.
