Mind control has taken a new twist today with XWave, a NeuroSky eSense patented technology that allows you to “see your mind in action.” What this means is, well, you can take control of things by the electrical impulses transmitted through your skull to the surface of your forehead. These signals are analog, which are converted into digital by XWave, so as your mind wanders and sends out signals, you are able to control things.
Yes, its mind control. Just in another form you probably never imagined. The technology can be used to light up the living room, change colors of lights, or even control a game. The company is giving access to their API so developers can make their own mind-controlled apps, which is a scary thing. This is the first step into a whole lot of weirdness. The image from the company looks as though you can control your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad simply by thinking. A mind controlled iPod is one thing, but how about mind-controlling your truck remotely over a wireless interface? This could lead us into some seriously questionable situations, but hey, atlas the PLX XWave headset HAS to be on us to work. What kind of mind-control app or device would you like?
