Gamers May Soon Control Action With Thoughts

Have you ever gotten fragged in your favorite game because your response time wasn't good enough to avoid enemy fire?  You swear you saw the shot coming, but just couldn't move your hand fast enough to get out of the way.  Perhaps some new technology in the works will help in these situations by linking the game action directly to the player's thoughts.  I know, it sounds like science fiction, but it's not.  If you don't want to take our word for it, take a look at this article from Mercury News.

"Someday soon, video gamers may be able to use their heads, literally, to get better scores in their games. At least two start-ups have developed technology that monitors a player's brain waves and uses the signals to control the action in games. They hope it will enable game creators to immerse players in imaginary worlds that they can control with their thoughts instead of their hands."
