NeuroSky Mindwave Mobile
Siri is so 2011. There's a new way to control your computer or mobile device that doesn't involve fingers, gestures or even your voice. For $129, NeuroSky's Mindwave Mobile reads your brain waves and uses this information to control an entire suite of applications. This mind-powered headset can perform numerous tasks when connected to compatible applications, from keeping a meditation journal built on brain waves to playing a movie. NeuroSky hopes to create a brand-new way to interact with the computer, but will this new form of input live up to the hype?
