First Rule Minute – Emotiv: A Mind-Reading Controller

Travis H. Brown, CEO of First Rule Media Network, brings you the First Rule Minute. You can buy a product – right now – that can control virtual objects with thoughts. It’s called the Emotiv EPOC, and it’s like a Star Wars fantasy device.

Emotiv EPOC looks like something out of Mad Max or Minority Report. The fourteen electrode arms wrap around your skull.

To understand the device, think about a standard EEG machine. That’s what scientists use to detect the electrical signals in your brain. Those brainwaves fluctuate as you have thoughts and feel emotions. The Emotiv is a cheaper, more user-friendly version of that.

Will Travis love it or shove it?

He loved it of course!
