The NeuroGaming Conference and Expo runs May 1-3, 2013 in San Francisco. In neurogames technology is used to more directly link game play to your brain, nervous system and body. Examples include touch stimulation, augmented reality and gesture-based interfaces, brain-controlled games, emotional dynamics and even the direct electrical stimulation of the brain to improve performance.
The conference will cover games, therapeutic games, investing and trends. In addition, eye tracking, brain monitoring and others tools that provide a robust but cost effective way of measuring mental states are covered. For example, Advanced Brain Monitoring will be at the conference. They offer a wireless medical grade EEG monitoring unit (shown directly above) that should be useful for all sorts of cognitive design studies. Check out a short video on how it is being used to help uncover the neuro-correlates of strong leadership.
Best of all you can directly experience the games and tools on the expo floor.
I hope readers that attend the conference will share their impressions and photos. I am especially interested to hear if you believe neurogames offer a 10x improvement in the gaming experience.
