Overclock3D writes the OCZ NIA will be available next week for £300, approx. $595 at the current currency exchange rate.
Back in January we brought you news of a new device showcased by OCZ over at the Computer Electronics Show. Codenamed the Neural Impulse Actuator (or nia for short), OCZ captivated audiences by seemingly being able to use brain power to control the motion of a character in the the popular FPS Unreal Tournament.

While details of how it worked at the time were quite sketchy with many people taking guesses at whether it was actually controlled by brainwaves or facial expressions/muscle movements, today (after seeing the device in action on a one-on-one basis) we've got some further information on the unit along with some pictures of what you can expect from the retail version once it starts shipping.
