The excitement of [cangar] is evident in the working brain computer interface (BCI) module he released for skyrim VR, which modifies the magic system in the game to significantly improve the spelling effect when players are in a state of concentration. [cangar] it’s not just fooling around. He is a neuroscientist whose research focuses on assessing mental state during task execution. Fortunately, he is also an enthusiastic virtual reality player. There are several interesting aspects of his project, which he is happy to show in several videos.

Muse 2 can be easily installed under VR headphones.
It all began with the player’s padamius 2 meditation device; The utility model relates to a passive and ready-made electroencephalogram (EEG) device, which is mainly used to guide users to better relax and concentrate. [cangar] reads the data using the brainflow library and processes it into the final value in the proportion between “unfocused” and “focused”. [cangar] mainly explained that the ultimate goal of his system is to simulate the player’s psychological state, which is different from only simulating brain activity. Therefore, the motion data will also be considered, and keeping it unchanged will bring some benefits to the process.
How is this data actually used in the game? In virtual reality, this “focus” value is displayed as a small bar on the player’s wrist, and the spell effect (for example, the damage of attack spells) varies with the size of the bar. When the bar is full, the player will be very powerful and the spell will cause double damage. If the bar is empty, the spell does little damage.
[cangar] demonstrated mod in two videos (both embedded below), but you won’t see him shooting at the enemy with a fireball. It is speculated that the virtual reality player already knows what this looks like, so what he does is explain the appearance and working principle of the system (the first video, prompt to 4:12), and the second video shows how the focal length table changes according to his activity and mental state.
The results look exciting, and the potential uses of systems like this are very interesting. Before launching a magic attack, take a few deep breaths to calm your body and mind, which will have a practical effect in the world. Because things rarely go according to plan, learning to concentrate under pressure also has obvious survival benefits. But if the brain monitor is not what you like, you might as well consider cycling leisurely in the sky.
