A crack team of braniacs, researchers and students at Washington University in St. Louis, America, have designed a brain-computer interface that allowed a 14-year old epileptic gamer to play Space Invaders using only the power of his brain waves. Way to go, the future is finally here!
The Wash. Uni boffins programmed an Atari
2600 to interface with headgear
that monitored ‘electrocorticographic
activity’ from the brain’s surface to detect signals based on thought
processes. By calibrating his thoughts with video
game triggers, the teenager was able to learn the ropes ‘almost
instantaneously’. For more info and to see a video of this amazing feat, click here: LINK
