Limited Edition Gaming Mouse From Razer

by Johan on September 11, 2008

Here is a new limited edition gaming mouse from Razer in the form of the Razer Team Serious DeathAdder. The mouse was specially designed to honor Quake 3 champion Alexey “Cypher” Yanusheuski who was a winner at the ESWC 2008 in San Jose, California. Only 20 units of this special edition gaming peripheral that will be released in November 2008. I am curious about its price tag. Sadly, there is no word on pricing at this time.

Control Games With Mind

by Stephen on August 22, 2008

Emotiv EPOC Headset

Another cool gaming interface breakthrough has been unveiled. Emotiv EPOC headset allows user to control games through brainwaves. The technology is based on the latest development in neuro-technology, utilizing non-invasive electroencephalography (EEG) to scan and interpret specific brain activities. Before playing the games, user will need to undergo “warm-up” sessions to sync specific feeling with control. Once everything is set, you get to push, pull, lift and move game objects with your mind. Another cool factor is that you get to have your own avatar that reacts to your brain real-time, means the avatar will have live facial expressions, and blink as you blink, or smile as you naturally feeling cheerful. Each Emotiv EPOC neuroheadset is priced at $299 and will begin shipping in late 2008. [Emotiv VIA Upcoming Videogames]
