OCZ neural control

Normally associated with PC performance hardware, OCZ is using this week's CeBIT expo to show off a new control system based on neural activity. The Neural Impulse Actuator (NIA) reads central and peripheral nerve activity, and translates it into commands based on a combination of brain, eye and facial signals. While the NIA is only in a prototype stage at the moment, OCZ says it intends to develop controllers for both gaming and productivity uses.

The company's more conventional offerings begin with a pair of USB 2.0 flash drives. The ATV will be secured in a dense rubber casing, while the DashDrive will have a low-power screen, displaying space left on the drive as well as a name, date or personal bitmap image. Two power supplies are coming as well: the ModXStream will be based on the GameXStream but have a modular cable management system, and the StealthXStream will supply 600W while still remaining quiet. Lastly, the HydroJet will be a self-contained liquid CPU cooler, designed to simplify the process of installation. No dates or prices have been attached to any product.
