One of my first posts on this blog was about a controller that could read the neural impulses in your mind and translate into an action on the screen. This story has really grown from two months ago, and has now reached reached mainstream news at cnn.com.
"Being able to control a computer with your mind is the ultimate quest of human-machine interaction. When integrated into games, virtual worlds and other simulated environments, this technology will have a profound impact on the user's experience."
I'm still concerned with the accuracy of the controller and with the price. Last I checked, the retail price was $169.99, which is just outrageous for a controller. Still, the potential for such a controller does have enormous capabilities, as it can provide a mechinism by which we could read the brain's thoughts and translate that into an action. I can completely see how this technology can become the controller of the future because if it is reliable, it will be much more intuitive than using a traditional controller.
