With the power of my brain I will control the computer!

...or not.

Our brethren from Ateneo de Manila University came down last weekend to conduct a workshop on the research on affect computing, which means getting the computer to read the behavior of the user and having it react accordingly. One of the gadget that came with the research was the OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator. The NIA reads brainwaves and inputs those into the computer. Control is still coarse, but it works...after a fashion.

Much fun was had by all.
