This is the brainwave-reading headset that grants its wearer the power to directly influence the course of specially created movies and games. By concentrating, relaxing, or even blinking at crucial moments, viewers choose who lives and dies, whether the hero wins or loses, or how close an arrow comes to a bullseye. Price $129.95
The headset uses electroencephalogram technology to detect the electric signals generated by the brain. As viewers master their mind control, they can change plotlines and select new endings in each of the four included movies (with themes such as horror, sports and even first-person action in the criminal underworld). The software, which is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP, Mac OS X 10.6.5+, or via a free downloadable app for iOS, and Android devices, also includes two arcade games, a “meditation journal”, and a brainwave visualizer that interacts with each mood. More than 100 other mental-control apps are available commercially.
