Mind Over Matter

Atari Mindlink System
1984 Summer CESChicago, IL
In this photo from June 5, 1984, an attendee to the Consumer Electronics Show tests the Atari Mindlink.  This was a headband controller that worked in tandem with a wireless remote and was going to be marketed as a way to control video games with your mind.  It worked through electrical impulses from the movement of your forehead, but it didn't work well and was never released (photo by Charlie Knoblock - Associated Press).
