Yup! We'll have to wait to see how sensitive it is though. The brain runs on electricity, so it is easier than you might guess to react to spikes in mental activity.

I tried one of these devices -10- years ago, and while it worked, it was not that accurate. But this product looks like it could possibly work much better than previous efforts.

$$$?

I'd rather have this than a controller but at what cost.

And I hope the mind controller doesn't put pressure on sensitive arteries in the head.

this looks really cool, if its within my budget and very sensitive (im a very creative thinker so i could see this as an advantage to me). other than that this looks very interesting! =D

What if they put this into a VR helmet, and then hooked it up to work that Robotic suit?

No training needed!

I think this was actually featured in some article about 'the future of gaming' or something?

Yeah, eventually, someone will use a better version of this + modern VR imaging device...or better yet, combine the two together, to produce a device that not only reads signals from the brain, but stimulates parts as well (producing a world of sensations and visuals in your mind)....they would need to HEAVILY R&D it though, so as to not have some sort of .hack thing happen >_>

How much would this sort of device cost, it must be a rather large sum. It is after all very awesome, awesome things(excluding cheese) are very expensive!

Well naturally, they'll be a luxary item early on, but I think Sony is actually looking into having this in the next generation (or rather, something like this)....But who knows? I mean, I don't think it would be cost prohibitive, once they figure out how to mass produce it....

A price has not been released, but I don't imagine it would be very expensive. The sensing units and such are not that costly to make.

This is just a complete guess, but I would think it would sell for between $50 and $80 buckz.

That wouldn't be a bad price at all for what it is. Using such a controller might be hard for people like me who keep getting distracted

Just like Soviet Russia.


Needs to be more accurate though. And should be done without the use of hands. Unless the brain simply needs puppets to control?

There is no way in hell that's gonna cost $50-$80. I reckon a few hundred, at the least.

But yeah, this seems really cool. I'd love to get one if I can afford it when it comes out.
