Psychic Video Games

This Slashdot article caught my attention today saying that a commercially viable brain/computer interface will be available in 2008 with software designed to use it. The part that really caught my attention is that this interface device is non-invasive!

Of course, we're not really at immersive virtual reality yet, but this is effectively half of it. I still doubt that simulating experiences in the computer user will be able to be done without an invasive interface, but I'm quite surprised that we can go straight to non-invasive thought input devices without many stages of invasive ones first.

If the price is anything close to reasonable, I may have to get myself one of these next year.
