Square-Enix along with NeuroSky will unveil a mind-controlled gaming demo on Thursday at the Tokyo Game Show. It all works with a Windows PC and the MindSky headset. The PC runs Square’s software created specifically for the demo. The headset fits has earmuffs and an electrode that monitors brainwaves as you’re playing. Believe it or not, they say that the headset is even compatible with several different platforms.
No word yet on just how much control your brainwaves have over the game. According to Neurosky the headset monitors your level of relaxation and concentration. If you happen to be there, the demo will be in NeuroSky’s booth at TGS. This news will come as no surprise to those of us who have been controlling games with our mind already, by using it to control our hands.
