i thought it was a joke but there it was a neural headband so you can control your players with bioelectric impulses how cool is that i thought that sort of stuff was still stuck in sci-fi books and movies and for just under a £100 i was a bit shocked.
i wonder if anyone has one who could tell us if it's any good.

OCZ NIA Neural Impulse Actuator

OCZ’s Neural Impulse Actuator (nia) marks a new era in gaming. Rather than being a substitute for a mouse, the nia is a pioneering new peripheral to be used in conjunction with your mouse for a more immersive gaming experience. The nia is compatible with any PC game using keyboard input… past, present, or future. Predefined profiles included with the software allow the gamer to develop their own nia—memory to launch the desired behavior of their character and shoot with the “blink of an eye”, without lifting a finger.
Play Games Using Biosignals
Translate electrical biosignals of your body directly into computer commands and take advantage of total immersion into game play. Customize behavioral profiles of your character and let your subconsciousness take over.
Hone Your Reflexes
Where others have to practice reaction times, you can use reflex-based game play to get the better of your opponents by cutting your reaction time by 50%. Use Space-Age Technology The headband uses carbon nanofiber-based sensors to provide the highest possible dynamic range for the recording of bioelectrical signals that are amplified and digitized and further de-convoluted into computer commands.
Become Your Character
Streaming biopotentials into the computer and witnessing real-time feedback through the game will result in a novel way to experience virtual reality. Enter a virtual world where abstractions like keyboard commands are replaced by intentions converted into tensions and translated into command structures.

Saw this a few months ago and it looks quite fun to use. A friend of mine said he was gonna buy one but never did.

Wonder what playing CSS would be like with that.

Edit: Just seen this one the website too

Yeah, I saw it a while back when I was looking at the RAM I was gonna buy- and then saw that limitation on the drivers as well.
