Mind control has been seen in comic books and science-fiction for a long time in great stories told by visionaries from our past but now it's more than just a possibility, it is a reality! Brain sensing controllers are available and here's one from a company called Emotiv.

Based on the latest developments in neuro-technology, Emotiv has developed a revolutionary new personal interface for human computer interaction.

Finally Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty is here! The sequel to one of the best games ever is out now and the success of this gaming franchise has been phenomenal, after all 11 million players have played the first game and some still do.

I remember playing this game way back in high school and it was the most popular game at my internet gaming shop. I can't wait to play it and see all the new units, features and the always compelling story behind it all. It can also help save the world!

One of the coolest things to do in the games was to launch a nuke! And finding the target on the map was difficult for the opponent to save because it was just a tiny red dot. I remember the friends I played against would keep scrambling to get their units and building out of the way, it was so much fun!

Lucid dreaming and inception

While watching the movie Inception, I was quite impressed with the hallway fight scene. It was very creative, imaginative and was amazing to see. It made me remember a few things from childhood that I used to do and dream about.

One of which is lucid dreaming, it was really fun to be able to control my dream and alter everything around me. I'm going to do it again and see just how fun and powerful it can be now.
