Ariel Garten - Redefining Consciousness


Ariel Garten discusses the meshing of brainwaves, computers, and games, explaining how they might be used to better "know thyself."  One interesting idea is the use of gaming to help children with attention deficit disorder - a game that is controlled based on the brainwaves of the player, giving awards for keeping focused.  The video shows a game for the iPad that is controlled with a brainwave reader.  It's interesting to see other potential games like this, as the only other game I can think of that came close to this was the Journey to Wild Divine.
