Son of Nor's Brain Computer Interface

This video shows off elements of Son of Nor being controlled by a brain controller called Emotiv EPOC, "a revolutionary personal interface for human computer interaction; a Brain Computer Interface (BCI). The partnership will allow players to control character actions, such as telekinesis, terraforming and magic with the power of their minds." The clip shows one of the developers from Still Alive Game Studio using the controller to perform game functions, which delights him to no end. They have added a $300.00 tier to their Kickstarter to include an Emotiv EPOC headset.

You could see where one of those headsets would be good for paralyzed people. However, stem cell research to correct the problem at the source would be even better. They'd already be cured if it was for the right-wing, fascist fundies.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.

The image on his screen looks a little canny, like it was added in post. Maybe not.

Also... It looks like he's mostly actually working the thing by manipulating his head and facial muscles (watch his eyebrows raise and lower, his jaw clench, etc.). That's okay I suppose, because it's probably best to have some sort of action or something in mind when you calibrate it for a specific button press. All the same, way too gimmicky for me, but you gotta start somewhere. It's not hard to imagine the technology improving over the coming years and decades to the point where you perform complex and precise actions with it.

Not sure how good this brainwaves thing can be, but they should integrate it with a VR headset like the occulus.
