Angry Birds, from Rovio, as you know is a major hit among the gamers of all devices. But now, two hackers, Rafael Mizrahi and Anat Sambol, came up with an idea of controlling the “Angry Birds” with their mind. And the result, “You can play the entire Angry Birds game with just your thoughts.” May be thinking of your boss while playing might yield you a 3 star finish!
All they had to do was to grab a copy of the game onto their Mac, strap an Emotiv EPOC headset and open up the port to accept incoming messages from Emotiv’s EPOC, and then port GlovePie to make the mouse do all that he wanted to do from his thoughts. The fruitful result was the Angry Birds controlled by thoughts.
The video below shows how this actually works. I’m sure you will be interested in trying this out, checkout how you can do this by yourself after the video.
Ok, so, now you are going to try this at home. Here’s how you can do:
Grab the SDK version of EPOC headset, so that it can be paired with other 3rd party applications. And then do the modifications using the GlovePie to make the mouse movements.
