Direct Neural Interface for Hard Core Gamers

Video games have long driven computer and video card sales. It is astounding how much time and money gamers will spend on their highly addictive hobby.

Well, now there is a new technology for them to spend their money on.
At least two start-ups have developed technology that monitors a player's brain waves and uses the signals to control the action in games. They hope it will enable game creators to immerse players in imaginary worlds that they can control with their thoughts instead of their hands. |Mercury News|

The potential for this is endless. Imagine horror games that learn what scares an individual and what doesn't and changes the game's make-up accordingly.

On a side note, the Koreans are again showing just how futuristic they are. Korea is becoming a very interesting place and I wonder what it will be like ten years from now.
