Someday, that is. Scientist David Schwarz has built a co-op game called PsyPod that has two players working together to protect a baby robot. The coolest part is that PsyPod is controlled directly by the brain via an electroencephalography headset. Schwarz wants to work on the game a little more before releasing it to the public, but he hopes that once he’s done he’ll be able to offer it for free to schools. He wants to get more students interested in neuroscience.
