This article from ZDNet may have future implications for autistic children and adults….

    “A new game platform apparently makes it possible to manipulate a virtual world with one’s thoughts and emotions. Emotiv Systems unveiled on Wednesday a brain/computer interface system with a helmet and software applications at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The Project Epoc system can move objects based on a gamer’s thoughts, reflect facial expressions and respond to the excitement or calm the gamer displays, the company said.

    One of Emotiv Systems’ four co-founders is Allan Snyder, director of The Centre for the Mind, a joint venture of the Australian National University and the University of Sydney.”
