First brain controlled video gaming headset unveiled

San Francisco (CA) – Emotiv Systems today unveiled the EPOC, a neuroheadset that allows users to control gameplay simply with their thoughts. IBM said that it is looking for ways to extend the EPOC beyond games into enterprise business markets.Emotiv said that the EPOC is advanced enough to detect more than 30 different expressions, including immersion, excitement, meditation, tension and frustration; facial expressions such as smile, laugh, wink, crossed eyes, shock (through raised eyebrows), anger, horizontal eye movement, smirk and grimace (through clenched teeth). The device is also able to detect cognitive actions such as push, pull, lift, drop and rotate (on six different axis) as well as a “completely new category of action based on visualization, the first of which is the ability to make objects disappear.” http://www.tgdaily.com/content/view/36131/118/
