If one thing is clear from the music industry over the last 20 years, it is that consumers are seeking an ever-more immersive experiences, and in many ways bio feedback is the "final frontier," where music can be made in reaction to emotions, mood and more. Whether the feedback comes from autonomic processes (stress or arousal, as in Galvanic Skin Response) or cognitive function (EEG signals from the brain), there is no doubt that these "active input" technologies, which differ from traditional HCI inputs (such as hardware controllers) in their singular correspondence to the individual player, are here to stay. These technologies are already robust enough to be integrated into everything from single interfaces to complete systems.
