Brain to Game Interface

Posted by Peter Rasmussen on April 7, 2007

Emotive Systems have created a helmet and software that will allow gamers to move objects in virtual space with their thoughts. It’s based on serious medical research and it’s the real deal

I have been fascinated for a while by the idea of lucid dreaming. My daily timetable is too unpredictable at the moment to practice it seriously. It would seem to require a similar level of attention as getting good at a musical instrument. But it occurred to me you could potentially influence the dreams with some programmed sound effects through the night. But I could not work out how the “aware” dreamer could effect the program running the sounds without waking. Maybe this new interface is a way.

The developers say young players have the best successes with the system because they have no barriers to believing they can change the shape of the world with their minds.
