Brink Bionics completed a very successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in and gained the confidence to take part in the CES just last week. The Waterloo, Canada-based startup has a single ature product for now, the Brink Bionics Impulse. It is described as a "neuro-controller for PC gaming," and takes the form of a glove that uses built-in sensors to read your muscle bio-als and applies AI to accurately predict your clicking intentions. They key claim for the product is that it can improve your gaming reaction speeds by as much as 80ms. In PC gaming, particularly in the genres mentioned above and in competitions, milliseconds matter and gamers invest heavily in tech that promises to help them improve reaction times - be it an expensive monitor with minimal lag and latency, powerful PC components, or premium peripherals. The Impulse hastens your reaction times by knowing what you are thinking about doing, by reading those electrical muscle impulses, and 'clicking' for you before your muscles would be able to get around to completing the action.
