FUD Zilla met with OCZ at CeBIT and learned the company is further developing its NIA device. Previously, the device only enabled you to make some movements or actions in games, but now the company showed off that with some training you can use the device to write just by thinking. It won't replace keyboards anytime soon, but it seems like a nice development for disabled people.
The one thing that left us completely stunned is the little profile that Dr. Michael Schuette made in order to show the real potential of NIA. After opening a blank notepad file, Dr. Shuette was able to write a whole sentence by only using the "power of his brain", in this case NIA.
The story behind this is quite simple as you spin the letters by using certain NIA control and stop it at the letter that you want by another NIA control. It all takes a bit of practice but the bottom line is that it can be done. The best part is that it didn't take minutes to write a sentence and that it was pretty fast, almost as fast as writing it, which clearly points out that NIA can be used for everything and not just gaming.
