Mind Controlled Rhythm Game

Use brain wave analizer as a video game controller

Use an electrode-laden helmet to detect brain-activity and graphically project it on the screen. Build a game around that which is similar to Guitar Hero or DDR.

Eventually, subliminal messages could be injected into the game, and the most receptive brain-pattern be used to get a high-score so that the person will become more suceptible to subversion...

       Biofeedback computer games exist. They're usually of the "make this balloon float up in the air" variety, though, pretty easy. It takes a while to change your brain waves, so quick reactions are out of the question. It's still fun to learn to move a part of your body that you didn't know you could deliberately move!   

       (-) for the *use* unnecessary and technically bogus *a* introduction of "subliminal messages" *spellchecker* into an invention that has nothing to do with them.

       To be fair, [jutta], I think the main point of the idea is the subliminal messaging, and the biofeedback game is a novel way of delivering it.   

       However, I think the idea does need more explanation of how the messages are delivered, and (perhaps more difficult) how receptivity is going to be detected or measured.
