Train GameSalad to Read Your Mind!
This demonstration will show how to set up GameSalad to recreate Richard Marken's famous “Mind Reading” experimental program. (A version of the original program can be found at: http://www.mindreadings.com/ControlDemo/Mindread.html ) Using this setup you will be able to get GameSalad to determine a game player’s intentions -- in effect, reading the player’s mind. Using “Perceptual Control Theory” you will set up GameSalad to constantly determine which variable the user is trying to control. This “test for the controlled variable” will show us the user’s purposeful intention. It is the user’s purposeful behavior that reveals what he is concentrating on. (What is on the players mind.)
