Biofeedback Game

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

A biofeedback game is a video game that uses an electroencephalography (EEG) machine to read brainwaves. This mechanism can allow a player to control parts, or possibly all, of the game with their mind. In most cases, a game controller is still needed for some tasks and controls.

Biofeedback games are not mainstream yet, primarily due to the higher cost of the EEG device and the time it takes for players to "teach" the device and game how to read their brainwaves.
