I'm fragging you... with my BRAIN! (OCZ NIA)

Just got my newest toy in the mail today and thought I'd share the unboxing (will post my first impressions tomorrow). From what I understand, with a whole lot of practice, this is thing is like having a third hand with a nearly instantaneous reaction time. The one downside? The 64bit drivers aren't out yet! Ah well, that's why I have nearly a half dozen OS's on this computer.

Edit: In answer to Savenor's first reply, the NIA (Neural Impulse Actuator) is a "brain mouse." Actually, I suppose it's more accurately described as a "Brain Speedpad." It can be bound to specific muscle movements and/or brainwaves. Generally, the first thing you learn is the "jaw clench", which is useful for binding to fire. Eventually, you control fire without realizing that your doing anything at all. As you get more adept at the device, you get more control. The tricky bit is that noone can just pick it up and use it to it's full potential. It's like learning to use limbs that you never knew you had and can't feel (Like Hellen Keller learning to talk or Uwe Boll learning to direct). Still, the potential for awesomeness is there and the testimonials from successful NIA users abounds - so I'm giving it a try (I'm also a completely hopeless technophile and can't help myself).

Now, on to the pics!

The box. It was a very iPhone-like experience... only without the handy tabs to get things apart. I had to use a little screwdriver to coax off the outer shell.


The headset and the control box are stuck in there very snugly. It took some coaxing to get them out as they, too, had no finger holes of any kind.


The control box is about the size of my palm and looks very nice next to all my other sleek, black accessories.


The headset, when donned, makes one feel like a GOD... or that Mentok guy on Birdman.


And finally, a bonus shot of the doggeh being generally adorable.

What? Do you know me from somewhere or have you just never seen my picture before? This is certainly not the first time I've plastered my ugly mug on the internets.

Anyway, updating drivers and stuff since I haven't booted into XP since installing my GTX 280. Should be up and running pretty soon.

It had to be done. Also, pics of ferrets required. The link to "consumer whore" is funny too.

If I ground myself directly to a wall socket (with heavy gauge tin wire, not the best), I get the EMG down to 250.
WTF MAN
