It sounds very impressive, I'm sure you'll agree
Read more about it on the BBC News website
It'll be far more impressive if it's as good as they suggest.
Now available to pre-order!
OCZ's 'Neural Impulse Actuator' (gaming brain controller) is now available to pre-order for less than a hundred quid!
That quite a good price IMO!?
If you're interested in it... there's a link to the site accepting pre-orders included in the main article text

Hang on, it is £100, but $299?
Whatever happened to rip off Britain?
/me wonders if you can use it for EVE Online
But what games can you actually use it for?
I've not seen anything that tells me what games it will work with.
That just reminds me of Farscape..
I haven't been following up on it, so I don't know how long it's been available in the UK... but you can now buy OCZ's 'Neural Impulse Actuator' (NIA)
Who's gonna be the 'guinea pig' then
ooo wow i want one!!!
If you have a spare £95 or so... you could have one
If it is as good as they say it is, i can imagine that being REALLY useful. Seeing as you wouldn't waste that vital split second reaction time through having to use your arms.
Then again though does anything really work that well? lol. Definatly interesting though.
Its been out since february so there should be so good reviews on it...
I like the idea of this, but I also hope that it can be used in conjunction with other input devices.
I wouldn't want to just sit in front of my telly with my arms folded, I want to make a song and dance about blowing stuff up or whatever.
It'd be good to have this controlling the camera, and other things that are part of your camera, but have a keyboard for other controls.
A bit more defined than that, but you see what I mean?
I can think of a few gamers on here who could do with a brain control device
So if you have any power bricks or chargers in your house you cant use it. Howuseful is that!
If it worked like Firefox (the aircraft, not the web browser ;] ) I'd be interested.
Think "Throw grenade" and presto! Or "switch to sniper rifle", "reload", "heal" and so forth. Now that'd be cool. But having said that, I don't know why game makers don't just implement it right now with a microphone and speak recognition - would be a piece of p*** to implement and would make specialist keyboards and complicated keyboard mapping a thing of the past.
So this? Just a gimmick really, but not practical I don't think....?
Looks pretty frustrating/fun. I would really wish it to drop in price to about £40-£50 in order for it to be worth it concidering the amount of time it would take to get used to, I can imagine it really kicking off then.
