Next-generation toys read brain waves

Engineers at NeuroSky Inc. have big plans for brain wave-reading toys and video games. They say the simple Darth Vader game -- a relatively crude biofeedback device cloaked in gimmicky garb -- portends the coming of more sophisticated devices that could revolutionize the way people play.

The story is too old to be commented.

hey, maybe those PS9 commercials they had during the PS2 launch weren't as farfetched as we thought. Now that they're getting the first step done, reading the brainwaves, they'll soon be able to do the opposite and transmit brainwaves. Think about it, it was best said in the matrix that our 5 senses do nothing more then send information to our brains and that's what we call reality. All that's needed to be done is find a way to create those waves that our senses create, and before we know it, full immersion virtual reality will be here.

i used to think of such as impossible, but after following technology the last few years, i started to think differently about it. things like nanotechnology and how computers have advanced in the last 10 years made me think that it's really possible for virtual reality to be made within our lifetime. every year, the possibility grows with new advancements in technology. if anything, a true virtual reality would be the next great thing since the computer, as it would change the way we'd live life as we know it. everyone would benefit and use it, much like the computer as the applications for VR would be endless. I wouldn't be surprise if DARPA hasn't already been pushing for this since it would provide the ultimate combat simulator, one which soldiers can consistently train in situations otherwise impossible to recreate without being in war. i could go on forever with what can be done with VR, but all I know is that it's a cash cow waiting to explode and the first one to get it will make bill gates look like a bum.
