they'd invented a game that uses brain waves to encourage higher levels of focus and concentration from users. Though the game is still a prototype, other versions are in the works for release in the near future.
The games use a technique called biofeedback. Psychiatrists have used the method for years, and it uses electrodes to measure electrical signals in the brain. A small sensor is placed inside a headset, and the signals are sent out to a receiver. The more users think and focus about the required activity, the "better" they become at the game.
Though manufacturers say that the technology may someday be able to help children with Autism spectrum disorder or ADD, critics say there's not much evidence to support that claim. What I'm hoping is that, if this technology sells, it'll make gaming more of an active pastime and get gaming kids up and off the couch!
