Being a Jedi, I obviously have no need for devices such as these.

But yeah, I heard about it. Rather scary... Actually measures brain activity. Not too sure how healthy this can be if you'd use it as intensly as you would use a keyboard or (normal) controller. Would be rather funny to try once or twice

I wonder what the effect of drugs / alcohol on this thing is.

Anyway, this doesnt strike me as a thing designed for me... My mind tends to drift off while I game and I dont really think about what im gonna do next, just go with the flow. Having to focus on every movement / thing I want to do seems rather tiring.

But it still is quite interesting

It sounds really cool, although I wonder if it'll work well with complex and fast-paced games like Unreal Tournament. It'd be hard to get it to be as efficient as a mouse/keyboard combination for movement and aiming - and worse yet, in games like that your mind is usually preoccupied with tactics, timing items and predicting enemies - which might adversely affect mind-controlled gaming .

For linear games and such I don't think - I play. However, I'm pretty sure that the games that would be coming out for this would be very player-driven, so the story would basically revolve around the player's actions.

i think itd be good for games like oblivion where you can move around in a huge world or games like bioshock if you combine it with one of those virtual screens.
