Mind Technologies To Offer Thought-Controlled Apps For Android
http://hothardware.com/News/Mind-Technologies-To-Offer-...

Mind Technologies thinks big. It has declared it will bring "thought-controlled applications" to the Android market. It also plans to build an alternative to the strange-but-true Emotiv headset that allows thought to operate machines.

Mind Technologies currently makes a trifecta of "thought-controlled" devices and applications for the PC all of which rely on Emotiv's electroencephalogram (EEG) headset. Last month, it released its third product, a game controller named Master Mind. CEO Brent Fouch contends that thought-controlled games are faster to operate. Downside: say good-bye for the need for, and development of, hand-eye coordination. The company also sells a mouse named Mind Mouse and a Tic Tac Toe game. It's all a bit pricey for the casual, curious type. The Emotiv headset costs $300 and the Mind Technologies mouse or game controller will set you back another $100 each.


If they have a clue, the first demo has to be Firefox. Specifically, the Russian edition. And their spokesperson must be Clint Eastwood.
