NEW YORK (AP) - Hands cramping up from too many video games?

How about controlling games with your thoughts instead? Later this year, Emotiv Systems Inc. plans to start selling the $299 EPOC neuroheadset to let you do just that.

The headset's sensors are designed to detect conscious thoughts and expressions as well as "non-conscious emotions" by reading electrical signals around the brain, says the company, which demonstrated the wireless gadget at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

The company, which unveiled a prototype last year, says the headset can detect emotions such as anger, excitement and tension, as well as facial expressions and cognitive actions like pushing and pulling objects.

Warning: May cause severe damage in the brain when playing violent game, getting your brain popped in the game happens in reality too xD

I recall buying a similar item as a child. They were X-Ray glasses, and all they did was turn things green. Someone should buy this and inform me if it's worth stealing from you.

It costs to much? It probably doesn't work, so yes it does. BUT if it does, then this is a pretty cool thing and three hundred dollars isn't too bad for the first thing like it. As I recall, people bought an IPod for like... five hundred dollars that had what, like half a gig? Or, something like a NASA hammer. THAT costs too much.

    I am reorganizing the site I know nobody will notice but I am not done quite yet but the main forums order has been changed and there is a new news category in Other News which is all the remaining headline news stuff not categorized - Headline News is just the stuff that shows on the main page now and the news archive is off the main forums page
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and the real archive lives off of headline news
