I already control all of my gear with my brain - via my hands!

Well, to drive technology forward, this sort of development makes sense, but talk about making a simple task complicated and expensive. You can do the same thing with a twist of a knob, an expression pedal, a control message, etc. No, let's make it less reliable and increase lag time! Too smart for me!

Isn't imitone – pitch and modulation control with of your voice –better than this?

perhaps this device has been done to try something new, it may be useful for those who do NOT have a good mobility of the hands or none at all, or for even more control over the machines (as well as the hands and feet). What I can not understand is if the device has a predictable behavior once set, if when a person is training to use it can predict what will happen to the sound according to his thinking, or if it works like a chaotic algorithm that can not be to fully control.

I have complete music tracks and videos playing in my mind a lot of times. It will be cool when this technology projects to where you can project your complete music from brain to recording.

If it doesn't have aftertouch, perhaps it has afterthought instead.

I think that this could be the early stage of something that for us right it is very but in 20,30 or 100 years imagine that you could put a helmet and think of a sound and bum is there,I think that we should not be so skeptic even if we would not be interested,give them some credit for trying spending the time in creating such of thing

aye, well the whole point is controlling machines with your mind...apart from the obvious inclusive nature of this control for differently-able folks, ffs...come on..CONTROLLING MACHINES WITH YOUR MIND!!!
