OCZ set to launch Neural Impulse Actuator “brain mouse” by Donald Melanson, posted Mar 3rd 2008 at 4:07PM

It’s certainly not the first to toy around with mind control as a means of fun and games, but OCZ looks like it may be among the first to actually get a product out the door, with it now set to launch its Neural Impulse Actuator “brain mouse,” or NIA for short. According to Daily Tech, the device makes use of a combination of EEG readings, muscle movement, and eye movement to control a given application which, in this case, is mainly intended to be games. Needless to say, the contraption will take a little getting used to, but OCZ says that most users will get the hang of it “within hours” after a little practice, and that they’ll eventually even be able to increase their reaction time compared to a standard mouse.
