Brain Control

O.C.Z. Brain Controller. OCZ Technology are due to release thieir £100 ($200) "NIA" Brain Controller on the 21st of April this year. This device will enable users to map certain thought and muscle movements to individual key presses on a keyboard. With about an hours training - games are claimed to start to become accessible completely hands-free.

Having used something like this before - it's likely this controller will best suit slower paced games - but none the less - this looks exciting.

An alternative mind controller is the
Emotiv EPOC due in late 2008. Of historical note - Atari were working on something like this in 1984 with their "Mind Link", but never released it.
