Gamasutra is reporting that Square Enix will be announcing a brainwave-controlled game at the Tokyo Game Show this week. The game will license technology from NeuroSky called the Mindset. As per NeuroSky’s website:
The brain is comprised of many, many neurons. When transmitting information, small electric pulses are made. Over the last century of neuroscience discovery,the broad and specific regional readings of these pulses have been found to represent different categories of emotion and mental states. By reading these waves, known as EEG’s, the brain’s activity can be utilized by computers and other devices – a BCI (Brain-Computer Interface).
The NeuroSky Mindset also wants Sarah Connor and will be coming to you in some sort of entertainment format via Japan. Stay tuned. Or don’t, while you still have free will.
