Waterloo Labs has devised a way to play NES games using eye movements. Simply put, it's pretty awesome. Their custom-made setup uses electrodes and a bunch of technical stuff I cannot begin to understand to amplify and redirect the signal to the console.

This is clearly a fun project, but there's much more serious potential for it when you begin to think about disabled gamers, and how the concept could be adapted for them.
