OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator Available Soon

Back in January of last year, OCZ Technology for the first time demoed their unique gaming device the Neural Impulse Actuator (NIA). Showcased at the Computer Electronics Show 2007, the Impulse Actuator captured everyone's attention immediately. It aims to use human's brain power to control characters and other objects in games just like we ordinary do today with a keyboard, mouse or other game controllers. Now, some time after the first working prototype was displayed, OCZ Technology officials say that we should see the NIA in retail shops very soon. OCZ has updated its site to include the brain controller. First final samples are also starting to ship. Visit OCZ Forums for more information. Also if you want to have one, you can preorder it now from some of the major etailers such as NCIX.com for $159.99.

the reason it has a chance of working, is because signals from your brain to your hands take about 50ms to get there - this cuts that back. It might not sound like much, but compare it to the effort games go to reduce their online ping by 50ms, and you'll see the comparison - speed is important.
