For over a millennium, mankind has dreamed of the ability to control objects with the power of thought.

Inside the recent edition of H+ magazine, is an advertisement for Emotiv, a human-computer interface system based on the latest developments in neurotechnology that uses electric signals produced by the brain to wirelessly detect player thoughts, feelings and expressions while gaming.

The Emotiv website claims: “Fulfill the fantasy of having supernatural powers controlling the world with your mind!”

Emotiv Systems, headquartered in San Francisco, California, was founded in 2003 by four award-winning scientists and executives: internationally recognized neuroscientist Professor Allan Snyder, chip-design pioneer Neil Weste, and technology entrepreneurs Tan Le and Nam Do.

While Emotiv is currently focusing on the electronic gaming industry, the applications for the Emotiv EPOC™ technology and interface span an amazing variety of potential industries— interactive television, accessibility design, market research, medicine, even security.
