The latest interfaces for gamers are devices that sense brain waves and use them to control game play. Two California companies and their products are described in this article, along with some skeptical comments from neuroscientists. A side use of this technology is the development of software and hardware for people with disabilities to control equipment and their environment. The deployment of technology like this and the Wii remote control suggests that the use of keyboards for controlling computers is going to be diminished in the near future. -GW
