In a press release, Neurable has announced it's first look at it's brain-computer interface for VR. At Siggraph they will be showing Awakening, a VR game preview that is using machine learning to interpret your brain activity in real time to afford virtual powers of telekinesis.

Really interesting albeit a bit creepy tech. No mention on price, availability, or what kind of horsepower is required to achieve real-time brain scanning.

Brain signal acquisition is accomplished through our upgraded headband for the HTC Vive. Simply remove the elastic straps in the back and replace them with our straps. Our solution is a demonstration prototype of how brain sensors and neurotechnology can be integrated with AR/VR devices.
