OCZ's Brain Mouse Hits the Store 150

Posted by CmdrTaco
from the world-will-never-be-the-same dept.
John Roller writes "Three months to the day since Slashdot originally received word that OCZ's "brain-mouse" — the Neural Impulse Actuator was ready for shipping, the first in-depth review of the device containing pictures of the retail packaging along with several videos have arrived on the internet. Overclock3D.Net got the first look at the device, and although it's still early days, they managed to play a game of "Pong" using only brain power. The article is only part one in a month-long log of using the device, but it's extremely interesting to see what the people who have pre-ordered the device can expect from it when it arrives on their doorsteps shortly."

Unfortunately, after several hours of trying and still only being able to control one input, those limitations look to be greater than I thought. That being said though, I have every confidence that had I played with settings and kept the thing on my head for a few hours a day, I would learn to master more of the inputs and utilize them during gameplay. So if you are looking at buying the nia, I urge you to realize that you are buying a heavily scaled-down version of what you have envisaged." (emphasis mine)

      Actually, I met a software developer for this device at a dinner recently. I, too was skeptical. He said that learning how to use the device takes quite a bit of practice-- because this is like an appendage you never knew you had-- but mainly because controlling things on-screen requires concentration. Basically the problem is this: we deal with distractions all the time; the human brain is really good at doing context switches. But when you wear this interface, those context switches (someone comes up behind you and says "Hi!") change the input to the device. You need to learn to control those state changes-- you can do it, but it takes practice. He assured me that after some practice, this becomes much easier.

      As a side note-- this would be a great tool for learning how to beat polygraph exams! "Escape from Gitmo" for PS3 coming soon! ;^)

        Never yet encountered an interface as discussed here in vivo, but I would guess that 'concentration' might not be the proper way, I tend to think that an appropriate distribution of attention would do better. Within that model of thought, your 'context switches' change to a redistribution of attention.

    For those interested in whats inside the OCZ NIA, AnandTech has a product teardown available

    Anyone else have specific info on whats inside, etc? First thought that comes to me is, I want to make one myself!

    Teardown Article:

    • From the pictures in AnandTech's teardown:

      The controller for the whole board, and USB interface:
      * PIC18F.. - microprocessor (w/ USB transceiver)

      The input capture chip for the sensors:
      * PCM1803A - 24-Bit, 96kHz, Stereo, Delta-Sigma Audio ADC

      Misc supporting circuitry:
      * ..-2631 - 8-Pin DIP Dual-Channel High Speed 10 MBit/s Logic Gate Output Optocoupler
      * ADUM1300 - Analog Devices Triple-Channel Digital Isolator
      * Several HC595A shift registers
      * A ripple counter

        All-in-all this doesn't seem particular complicated.

        Offhand, I don't think the hardware shown could even work as an EMG, much less an EEG. I would thus presume they must have some form of differential amplification with a high CMRR in the visor itself.

        And without knowing that, we can really only make wild guesses as to exactly what this really measures.
    • They use a PIC18F2455. A PIC18 with 24KB of flash and 2KB Ram and USB for about $5 [futurlec.com].

      You can use C too, judging from the app notes. Handy for USB stuff.
  • Now that people don't need to keep their hands on the inputs at any time, I can see revolution in internet porn coming our way.

    This thing is probably Very Nice (if it wasn't slashdotted) but I'd want to pass the raw output to my own data analysis algorithms. Why should it just be a gaming device? I guess it can double as a sleep rythm detector, or maybe I can tune it to work with me, instead of the other way around.
  • slashdotted ftw
  • No, I did not read TFA.

    However, I don't think that those devices actually work by reading brain waves. Anyone who has worked with an EEG knows how motionless you have to sit in order to measure brainwaves. When we do experiments the subjects have to avoid muscle and eye movement as much as possible. Every movement of eyes or muscles exceeds any brain wave by magnitudes. There's a reflex that causes your eyes to move upward when closing them. So you also have to blink as few times as you can, which makes
  • Finally people can have furry anal sex on secondlife with their uberleet mind powers!
  • Does it fit over or under the tinfoil hat?
  • You know, at first I thought, "what, all they can do is play Pong?"  But then I thought, "Hey, holy crap, they're playing Pong with their Minds!" and realized that that is pretty freaking cool if you can do that with a consumer device today.
  • Can you imagine the possibilities if it really could read your mind?

    - Think yes to accept the EULA (and donate your firstborn to us...)

    - I know you didn't read it. Go back and read the licence properly...

    Next, the brain powered keyboard!

  • I really read "mouse brain hits the store". Would be more interesting....
