OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator
OCZ’s Neural Impulse Actuator (nia) marks a new era in gaming. Rather than being a substitute for a mouse, the nia is a pioneering new peripheral to be used in conjunction with your mouse for a more immersive gaming experience.
Translate electrical biosignals of your body directly into computer commands and take advantage of total immersion into game play with the nia!
The headband uses carbon nanofiber-based sensors to provide the highest possible dynamic range for the recording of bioelectrical signals that are amplified and digitized into computer commands/
Immerse Yourself into the Game!
The nia is compatible with any PC game using keyboard input… past, present, or future. Predefined profiles included with the software allow the gamer to develop their own nia—memory to launch the desired behavior of their character and shoot with the "blink of an eye", without lifting a finger.
Become Your Character
Streaming biopotentials into the computer and witnessing real-time feedback through the game will result in a novel way to experience virtual reality. Enter a virtual world where abstractions like keyboard commands are replaced by intentions converted into tensions and translated into command structures.
Where others have to practice reaction times, you can use reflex-based game play to get the better of your opponents by cutting your reaction time by 50%.
The innovative nia is like no other input device
The nia is a exciting new peripheral
- Fun-Designed to be used with a mouse and keyboard to further immerse yourself in the game
- Easy-Intuitive software works with all games
- Faster- Superior reflex times with the nia give gamers an edge
- Advanced-Frag opponents without even lifting a finger

However, surprisingly, it does work on my Asus netbook without issue, but I can't play games on there so it's not much good.
Also I feel that I should note that the product I received looked different than the one in the picture. The amp was the same, but the headband didn't have the diamond things on it, instead it had 3 pairs of 2 circular sensors located in pretty much the same place (as the sensors in the picture). I don't know what that's about.
When I tested it on me the only part that worked almost reliably was detection whether I look to the left and right. Looking up/down, making faces or moving jaws did not produce satisfactory results. Also, I had a problem with so called "ground loops". Basically in order for the device to work I needed to touch at the same time, or connect myself to it using additional anti static bracelet and a wire. I made it work only after I read on some NIA user discussion groups about the same problem faced by other people. Such bracelet should have been included with the device.
In the end, it is intriguing device, and it delivers promised functionality at least partially.
If you have the patience to learn it, though, the NIA is amazing. Deadly accurate, much faster reaction times, and extendability to almost any game you have via the programmable "Profiles". It can be as complex as your entire controller for an FPS to something as simple as controlling your left mouse button for a rhythm-action game. (And that's one heck of a trip, by the way.) Patient people, get the NIA! It should cost double or triple what it does. Impatient people, well, wait a few years for something that actually reads brainwaves, not nervous input.
