Head Hunter AC  
The Informatics Start Up. Game based on a novel bio-feedback method to enhance the human-silicon interface. Teams have developed a sensor that measures various chemicals in the brain and transmits data to wireless network receivers. A skilled software designer has developed a way of linking this into computer games so that the mood of the game can be altered according to the mood of the player and in so doing enhancing the virtual experience by means of a feedback loop. They need to convince VCs to fund them.B1,B2,E2,E3
