Our experiences with this device over the 15 years or so it has been around is that it possibly act as a sensitive muscle switch but 'mind control' in any effective way is way beyond the unit's capabilities. I have yet to be convinced after a number of demonstrations and trials that is reliable or reproducible enough to be effective.

here is the Jedi-inspired telekinetic interface prototype I made in 2004 with the help of Michael McIntosh, finally got round to make a video of it to share with you on this list



- the video was made very early in the morning, hence the hair :)

not directly GA oriented, more of a technical / game design experiment, but devices like NIA and Emotiv is likely going to be helpful for GA (this prototype use the predecessor of the NIA)
