I Did That With My Mind

Emotiv Systems is planning to begin selling headsets that will let you control video games with your thoughts. For $299:
The headset will be sold with a game developed by Emotiv, but it can also be made to work with existing PC games, the company said. Users will also be able to access an online portal to play more games, chat or upload their own content such as music or photos.

Emotiv plans to work with IBM Corp. to explore applications beyond video gaming. The "brain computer interface" technology could transform not only gaming, but how humans and computers interact, said Paul Ledak, vice president of IBM's Digital Convergence business.
Think about that phrase, "brain computer interface." Right now the interface is through our fingers, for the most part. What will happen when the computer interacts directly with our brain?

That's right...virtual reality interactive porn.
