If you think Nintendo Wii’s motion-sensitive game controllers require too much work, try the EPOC neuroheadset. It will let you control videogames using only your mind. The wireless headset’s sensors are designed to detect “conscious thoughts” as well as “cognitive actions like pushing and pulling” to direct the action. Early adopters will be granted high-level status in the Emortal virtual world, an environment specifically designed for EPOC users.
