Using non-invasive elctroencephalography (EEG), Emotiv's neuro-headset offers unprecedented brain-to-computer interfacing without forests of electrodes, trained technicians, or thousands of dollars. Intended for consumers, the "Epoc" will hit the market later this year for just $299.
Users in virtual environments will be able to pick up and interact with items solely by imagining the act. Capable of detecting over 30 actions and emotions, the headset's uses also include more realistic real-time avatar facial expressions -- wink, and your avatar winks.
