We stopped by the Neurosky booth today at GDC to learn more about the Neurosky brainwave interface, a light headset with a single sensor that rests on your forehead to pick up brainwaves. The current sensor can detect different states of mind, like meditation and attention, as well as facial gestures like blinks. The company is looking for more developers to use the technology for their apps and games. We got a short demo of a real toy helicopter ball (in the video below) and a game in which the player switches between two mind states to lift and then throw an in-game truck at his or her opponent.
