The WiiThink controller concept for the Nintendo Wii is a brain scanner that is meant to help keep brains active in old age and discourage diseases such as Alzheimer's.

WiiThink uses Electroencephalography (EGG) technology to monitor brain waves with a speaker in the ear piece that plays the game's sounds and instructions. The visor on the WiiThink controller acts like a Wiimote and can also be removed from the headgear.

Implications - With the baby boomer generation increasing in age, technological innovations in these are bound to be popular. They encourage activity and stimulating brain exercises that keep the mind young, and the body nimble. Stats for Gamer Brain Exercisers Trending: Older & Chilly
