Experimental VR Game Uses Your Brain Waves

Video game controllers are starting to feel a little 2000 and late.

Neurable, a startup gaming company that designs brain-computer interfaces, is currently showing off an experimental virtual reality game that uses brain waves to control the action.

Scalp-attached electrodes and eye-tracking technology turn your brain waves into commands that can control anything from robots to VR video games.

Their first game, which is based on grabbing and moving objects, looks fairly simple. But the mind-controlled headset is a breakthrough in VR hardware and is an important step toward immersive gaming without the distraction of controllers.

Finally, a startup has found something to do with our brains.
