Urban Sync goes Emotiv?

with 2 comments

$299. The Emotiv EPOC. All the details about the hardware and SDK to dig into conscious thoughts, etc. on their website. Should I consider a hardware upgrade of Urban Sync? Or should I stop reading WIRED? Comments appreciated!

Excerpt of the SDK description for developers being interested in using the Emotiv EPOC:

Affectiv™ Suite
The Affectiv suite monitors player emotional states in real-time. It provides an extra dimension in game interaction by allowing the game to respond to a player’s emotions. Characters can transform in response to the player’s feeling. Music, scene lighting and effects can be tailored to heighten the experience for the player in real-time. The Affectiv suite can be used to monitor player state of mind and allow developers to adjust difficulty to suit each situation.

Cognitiv™ Suite
The Cognitiv suite reads and interprets a player’s conscious thoughts and intent. Gamers can manipulate virtual objects using only the power of their thought! For the first time, the fantasy of magic and supernatural power can be experienced.

Expressiiv™ Suite
The Expressiv suite uses the signals measured by the neuroheadset to interpret player facial expressions in real-time. It provides a natural enhancement to game interaction by allowing game characters to come to life. When a player smiles, their avatar can mimic the expression even before they are aware of their own feelings. Artificial intelligence can now respond to players naturally, in ways only humans have been able to until now.
