...we believe that future communication between human and machine will not be limited to the conscious communication that exists today. Users will demand that non-conscious communication play a much more significant role.

Our mission is to create the ultimate interface for the next-generation of human-machine interaction, by evolving the interaction between humans and electronic devices beyond the limitations of conscious interface. Emotiv has created technologies that allow machines to take both conscious and non-conscious inputs directly from your mind...

Thats really impressice if applicable. If models and animations can shine through directly from our unconscious on the virtual creative realm!!! My God, it can be something... beyond words. I dont know from where to start.

Even greater Models and animations (Real true art comes from unconscious), therapeutic, elevate communication between people, speed up the workflow and so on. The game version available next year they say!!! Wow!

cool - I want one... but a little scary at the same time....

MAKE BOX, MAKE BALL, MAKE BOX & BALL, DELETE.... No, I meant UNDO...."Oh Damn".... sorry cant compute that... hehehe... lots of thoughts going through the brain and how can it keep up with all that ? I think the thing would fry during a modelling session.

Hmm, with some good development, this could be the answer to those people who want a "make cool model" button in Lightwave. Think of it, and it appears. Sort of like the Stay-Puft marshmallow man in Ghostbusters. You know, choose the form of the destructor...

Then people start spreading viruses. And the magnetic arms transmit data back and overwrite all the algebra you learned in school.

I remember that Nasa have been practicing flying jet-fighters with pilots minds,
however after many years of fairly useful results, it's deemed that "The hand is always quicker than eye" or in this case the minds eye! :)

Basically while mind control could move the plane left/right (Yaw/Pitch/Roll) etc..
The pilot moving his hand on a Rudder system was always faster and more accurate than those flying by thought. (wires connected to the brain)

Still the way it should be though..... :)

Firefox was just on TV a few weeks back and I was hooked into watching it. I remember the plane effects were pretty awful but seeing it again, I realized they are a lot worse then I remembered. Still loved the movie and I don't care what anyone says, Clint Eastwood is the frickkin man.

I want that headset, not only for games, but for Lightwave, etc.

(Do these headsets glow in the dark? That would be creepy... :D )
