OCZ saw an exciting opportunity to enhance the gaming experience and take PC gameplay to new heights. The OCZ NIA is not a replacement for a mouse but rather a pioneering new peripheral designed to provide an immersive experience for gamers. The OCZ NIA is the first commercially available BCI (brain-computer interface) specifically for PC gamers. Advances in hardware and software allow todays games to offer consumers an exceptional entertainment experience, and we wanted to take the next step by immersing gamers into these environments with the innovative new OCZ NIA, stated Ryan Petersen, CEO of the OCZ Technology Group. The OCZ NIA radically changes the ways that gamers can interact and control elements within games, and can be configured in a matter of minutes for any game that is already published or will be released. The commands are easily assigned with the OCZ NIAs user-friendly software and are calibrated based on the individuals physiology and personal preferences. Each of the Actuators signals can be assigned to a specific keystroke on the keyboard or a mouse button; consequentially, gamers can run, jump, and fire faster all without lifting a finger. Because the OCZ NIA converts EEG (electroencephalograph) signals into specified keystrokes, the device can be used with any software.
Upon proper configuration, the OCZ NIA will allow users to control PC games without the use of a keyboard and minimal use of a mouse. The final version of the OCZ NIA uses a sleek metal housing, a USB 2.0 interface, and streamlined headband with carbon dry interface sensors.
