Mind-Controlled Games Are a Billion-Dollar Market
– by Michael Brächer –
U.S. researcher Deepa Iyengar is designing computer games for mobile phones which are controlled by mind power. This is a fun, new opening in the market for the results of high-tech brain research.
(Deepa Iyengar is a cofounder and CEO of the Icelandic software company MindGames. She is a 39-year-old American who studied brain and cognitive sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.)
WirtschaftsWoche, Germany’s leading economic weekly, interviewed MindGames CEO Deepa Iyengar recently about the state-of-the-art in brain-computer interfaces, mind-controlled mobile software, and mind-controlled videogaming.

“Jedis, not Cylons: Changing the relationship between humanity and technology”. Deepa Iyengar, co-founder and CEO at MindGames, talks about people’s relationship with technology and where it could be heading.
Control the game with your mind
Currently, if you want to control a game with your mind, you must be a Jedi-in-training, who learns to control what happens in the game by changing the level of your relaxation and concentration. This state of affairs is perfect as far as MindGames, an Icelandic startup, is concerned.
“When you play our games, you should not only be having fun, but also learning how to relax and concentrate when you want to – because that’s what it takes to win, in our games and in life,” says Deepa Iyengar, co-founder and CEO.
