Being able to control a computer with your mind is the ultimate quest of human-machine interaction -- Nam Do, CEO of Emotiv Systems.

Emotiv Systems have developed a thought control helmet for gaming. It's called EPOC and apparently you can control any game on your PC through thought, emotions and expressions. It's supposedly only about three-hundred clams and is due out near the end of this year.

According to Emotiv's press release:

"The neuroheadset is a lightweight, sleek and easy-to-use wireless device, featuring sensors that detect conscious thoughts, expressions and non-conscious emotions based on electrical signals around the brain. Emotivs technology processes these signals, enabling players to control their in-game characters expressions or actions and influence gameplay using their thoughts, expressions and emotions."
