    Gamers will soon be able to interact with the virtual world using their thoughts and emotions alone.

    A neuro-headset which interprets the interaction of neurons in the brain will go on sale later this year.

    "It picks up electrical activity from the brain and sends wireless signals to a computer," said Tan Le, president of US/Australian firm Emotiv.

    "It allows the user to manipulate a game or virtual environment naturally and intuitively," she added.

    The brain is made up of about 100 billion nerve cells, or neurons, which emit an electrical impulse when interacting. The headset implements a technology known as non-invasive electroencephalography (EEG) to read the neural activity.

    Ms Le said: "Emotiv is a neuro-engineering company and we've created a brain computer interface that reads electrical impulses in the brain and translates them into commands that a video game can accept and control the game dynamically."
