Playing World of Warcraft using the Emotiv EPOC

This video shows our control framework being used with the Emotiv EPOC (http://emotiv.com) device. The Emotiv EPOC is an input device which picks up head movements, facial expressions and brain-waves. In combination with our control framework we were able to perform some basic gameplay tasks in the popular massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) World of Warcraft (by Blizzard Inc.).
The movements of the avatar are controlled by head rotations. The facial expression ‘smile’ is used to attack the next nearby enemy using various spells. For jumping we used the facial expression ‘raise eyebrows’ (not shown in this video).
