MindDrive Harnesses Brain's Impulses

Ron Gordon, the man who revitalized Atari by pushing its games globally, has developed a wireless pointing device worn on the finger that moves according to impulses generated by a user's brain.

By harnessing the same galvonic skin responses measured by lie detectors, computer users can control simple movements while playing specially designed games that support the technology.

Beginning next year, MindDrive will be sold by Gordon's company, Other 90 Percent Incorporated, in a package with 14 computer games.

Although MindDrive is currently limited to providing the simple up and down movements necessary for game playing, company officials hope to create more sophicated responses in the future.
