Brain-reading controller to make sure you stay calm

This strange-looking device is supposedly the future of gaming. A company called NeuroSky is developing a new type of controller, one that reads your brainwaves. The NeuroSky folks aren't so ambitious that they claim you'll be able to control the entire game with your mind, but they do think they can get your noggin to affect the way the game works.

For example, if you're playing Tiger Woods Golf and you're really nervous, the device would make it harder to putt. On the other hand, if you're a cold-blooded killing machine in Grand Theft Auto, your steady mind would make it easier for you to aim while you pick off civilians from the top of a casino while wearing a jetpack.

It seems like a pretty neat idea, in theory, but with any strange new technology like this, you've got to take it with a grain of salt and wait until you actually get to try it for yourself. We'll see.
