Mind-controlled gaming: Free your mind, and your character will follow!

If there were ever a gaming invention that would turn me into an addict, it would be the EPOC neuroheadset.  A device that allows you to control games and even computer-operated devices with a simple thought from your conscious and even non-conscious brain.  This little dandy can read electrical signals from the brain allowing you to control your in game characters simply by thinking what you want it to do.

How freaking cool is that?  It’s too cool for words.  It comes out later this year, and starts at a mere $299 per headset.  Affordable waves of the future.  It’s even being used in an episode of Prototype: This! where it will be used to drive a car via mind control.  I am becoming more impressed with this gadget every second.  I can’t wait to write my reviews without having to type for hours.

The pros to this thing are infinite.  Imagine playing a game and not fumbling with the controls because your fingers can’t keep us with your brain.  Games like Mortal Kombat will definitely become much more interesting.  Within hours you could be staging epic fights simply by staring at the screen.  No more aching fingers, no more juvenile arthritis and inflamed joints.

I look forward to playing Gears of War 2 with this puppy.  It can be made to work with virtually any PC game, so wherever your mind takes you… you can kick ass with it.
