OCZ NIA going for a steal in the UK

Cheaper than expected.

We mentioned a while ago that the Neural Impulse Actuator (NIA) would reach mass production soon, and that the selling price would be around $300 USD. You can read that news article here.

Since then we have discovered that in the UK at an introductory price, the NIA will be selling for 99.00 (a little under $200 USD) at this website . So if you live in the United Kingdom, you can get free delivery of this new technology which can be set up to work with just about any game for a very good price.

The NIA is designed to read your brainwaves and muscle impulses which OCZ call electroencephalography signals and translates the EEC signal to an actual command to your PC. The improvement on game response times is said to be around 60% although, having tried the device, it takes a bit of time and effort to master. Once mastered though, you can expect your eyes and face muscles to get an extraordinary workout as they coordinate to move your character through your games.

The Nintendo Wii changed the face of Console gaming to a more immersive and interactive environment with actionable controllers. We have to wonder if the NIA will do the same for PC games. Only time will tell.
