Atari, looked into interfacing people with computers and videogames in an entirely new way. A set of controllers and software combined together to create the "Atari Mindlink System". A combination of headband with Infrared Transmitter and Infrared Receiver, the Atari Mindlink system could connect to your Atari VCS 2600, Atari 7800 and Atari Home Computers. Using specially written software you could control the action on the screen. The headband would read resistance from muscles in the users forehead and interpret them into commands on the screen. Although never released, feedback from Atari engineers and people who tested the Mindlink have commented that the time and effort put into the Mindlink system was wasted because the controllers did not perform well and gave people headaches from over concentration and constantly moving their eyebrows around to control the onscreen activities. However it should be noted that again, Atari was ahead of its time with innovations such as these and given time for refinement and newer design technologies the idea of the Mindlink system would've grown into a successful peripheral.

 

Tom Palecki from Atari's Industrial Design group created the headband and transceiver cases. An earlier project called "Bionics" involved a similar type of bioelectronics device. The electronics design was done by Robert Coppack and the case design was done by Regan Cheng, according to Regan the Mindlink was originally going to be a module that would have plugged into the Bionics medical system.

I've found that even the motion sensitive controllers are hell to get used to, and now this..hmmmmm..I'd like to give it a shot.

This makes me glad I never started playing video games. I haven't picked up a controller since Duck Hunt was brand new on the market.

the fact that they have this technology already available to gamers (conscious thought reception/translation) makes you wonder what kind of advancements have already been made that we dont know about yet. (if you havent already been wondering).
