Another brain wave sensor

Yet another brain wave sensor, Brainlink, hits the market.  This Chinese product has one dry sensor and an ear reference and appears to be based on the NeuroSky chip.  It does not look terribly innovative or particularly well designed, but is probably more comfortable than NeuroSky's Mindwave.  There is a video illustrating it on YouTube.  It is on eBay for $299.

Aside from these devices working with smartphones and using dry sensors, they are decidedly less capable than traditional neurofeedback devices, which have come down in price and can be had for not much more than these devices.  An example is the GP8, which runs about $350 with all the bells and whistles.  It is a single channel trainer and comes with its own software but can also run BioExplorer.
