Pressing a button is so 20th century. And winking or asking Google Glass to do it for you seems like quite a lot of effort too. So, for the truly lazy, Neurocam analyses your brainwaves to work out when you want a picture taken.

Of course these cat ears come from Japan, and of course they'll be on sale soon. Neurowear's Necomimi ears sit on a hairband (though don't let that put you off, guys!) and have sensors inbuilt for detecting brainwaves. Depending on the signals decoded by the sensors, the ears can twitch, wriggle or even flop down, letting everyone around you know your true mood.
The original Mindflex was like playing basketball, but for your brain. Seriously, it read your brainwaves to move the ball. This new Mindflex Duel uses the same idea, but now you get to go head-to-head (or brain-to-brain) against a friend.
The technology behind Neurosky's Mindset is essentially the same that was peddled around last year at trade shows. The only difference now is that it's ready for PC gaming consumption starting in July.
Square-Enix and NeuroSky will unveil a mind-controlled gaming demo on Thursday at the Tokyo Game Show. The setup works with a Windows PC and the MindSky headset, and runs Square's software created specifically for this demo. The headset fits over your head with earmuffs and has one electrode that monitors brainwaves. The headset itself is compatible with many different platforms, but it isn't specified what level of control your brainwaves have over the game. Neurosky only says the headset it monitors your level of relaxation and concentration. The demo will take place in NeuroSky's booth at TGS.
newVideoPlayer("/mindmusic_gawker.flv", 506, 302,""); French company Musinaut wants to make the music you listen to change according to your mood. To achieve this, they have invented a special player capable of reading your brain waves, interpreting them, and then mixing the music to match your state of mind. So if I was using one right now, I would be listening to a funk version of Abba's Dancing Queen.
