CES 2013: 'Mind reading' headband can control games

Help

Most video games require nimble dexterity in the hands of the player to achieve success.

But Interaxon's Muse headband puts a different part of the body to the test, the brain.

The wireless sensor monitors brainwaves, encouraging the wearer to learn how to direct focus or force themselves to relax in order to influence the game.

Interaxon chief executive Ariel Garten said she hoped the headband - which will cost $199 - would be launched later this year.
