OCZ preps neural headband controller for release

The folks at OCZ have been talking for a while about a device known as the Neural Impulse Actuator, which employs several sensors embedded in a headband to read certain electrical impulses from the wearer, theoretically acting as a PC input device.

The software offers extensive control over how these inputs are registered, complete with input delays of specified time intervals to prevent one from, say, inadvertently registering a whole slew of jump commands in rapid succession.
