Brain Game

This is something we are starting to see more and more of, and the technology is being applied to numerous uses and applications, even if they are rather mundane. It seems like something we would see in one of those futuristic movies, except the future is now. Behold the game of Brain Pinball.  Berlin Brain-Computer Interface research consortium has taken the power of the brain to control a Pinball game.  The idea was exhibited at CeBit in Germany and its pretty cool althought the helmet/hat contraption is a bit ridiculous, but hey, its a start.  What can this technology do next?

    I’m just finding these technologies to not be as “fun” in completely excluding the physical, tangible, and multi-sensory experiences so intrinsic to life.
