    OMG! It finally happened! The question is what game company will pick up this technology in the future? Control games with your mind!

    Its been done before. I frget when but a couple years ago a kid had somthing wrong with his brain and it wasn't funcrtioning right. Since he was currently paralyzed tehy had almost no way of knowing. So they installed a chip in his brain that would pick up controlls for a video game he use to love and always win at. If he won the doctors would know his brain was right- and he won

    oo just read other posts, wasn't frst to post this

    I was reading Discover magazine a while back and they had an article about doctors implanting some type of chip in a paralyzed man's brain that allowed him to control a computer mouse with his mind. It was really cool; he was able to check his emails, draw, surf the net, etc.

    I can't wait to see how that technology progresses, because of its medical implications.

    The sad part was that they later removed the chip to try it on other patients, since it was the only prototype.

    grrr..video game master...grrr

    somone made a good comment on the gamespot chat thingy at the bottom, he said not only would the game be boring but would be like watching tv, very good point seeing as you aren't doing anything. you are just thinking of a way to beat it. also, people would become addicted, and this is just sort of wrong, we shouldnt depend on computers for everything, i have a bad feeling about all this.

    if only scientists would spend more time enhancing the mind and unlocking it's potential, instead of seeing what kind of parlor tricks we can do with it. Still cool though.

    The only difference is that this is a helmet, not an implant in your brain... so yeah just thought I'd point that out... :yesnod:

    i was just about to say that. how boring would that be. i could see myself getting uncomfortable after about 5 minutes because i'd just be intensely staring at a TV screen. I think motion sensing is way better. But if you're not doing anything, its more like a boring puzzle or something. A bad tv program where you have to think too hard about what's going on. Technologically, thats freaking amazing. but for video games, thats the worst idea ever.

    Yeah I don't like this idea I mean I don't know about you but playing a game without a controller isn't a game in my books.

    I'm more into a holodeck concept than a VR helmet that immerses a person into the game.

    We're going to see the game industry have very different methods of gameplay in the future. Mental, physical, and the current hybrid. We use controllers mostly with minimal body movement to determine in-game control. As for me, I'd prefer the hybrid system.

    i would think that more motion sensing would be implicated before this thought ever came to a companies mind, i would much rather be moving my body to do something,they should go full out and enhance the motion sensing so that you actually swing and dodge things for fighters and shooters, like not even holdin a controller but actually doing every single motion, that would be awsome in a good rpg style game, it would be great. but the mind thing is just weird.
