Playing games form your thoughts


Emotiv Systems has crate a hardware device that able to detect your thoughts.

And this kind of technology enable lot of new type of applications.

Specially for games.

Because other than joystick or wireless motion device ,you can directly use your thought to play the game.

As a example I thought to run in the game.So in the game 3d character runs.
