Called Lumisonic the software translates sound waves into circles that radiate on a display. It creates a real time representation of sound and is designed to elicit responses quickly in the human brain." - Via BBC News Technology.


Brain Reading Music Machine - "Mick Grierson of Goldsmiths, University of London, has developed a system to play musical notes he thinks of." - Via BBC News Technology.


Gaming's New Sensory Reality - "Computer graphics already provide stunning visuals and now designers are trying to make the feeling of playing games as realistic as possible. This includes simulating what it feels like to be sliced with a sword or to have cockroaches crawling on your arm.

Designers Hirouki Kajimoto and Kanako Matsuo spoke to the BBC's Rajesh Mirchandani about this latest innovation at the 2008 SIGGRAPH Conference & Exhibition in Los Angeles." - Via BBC News Technology.
