Submission + - Brain control headset for gamers (

gbjbaanb writes: Gamers will soon be able to interact with the virtual world using their thoughts and emotions alone.

Headsets which read neural activity are not new, but Ms Le [president of US/Australian firm Emotiv] said the Epoc was the first consumer device that can be used for gaming.

"This is the first headset that doesn't require a large net of electrodes, or a technician to calibrate or operate it and does require gel on the scalp," she said. "It also doesn't cost tens of thousands of dollars."

Personally, I'll hold out for one that replaces the mouse.
