These things although do create an interest in the general public they are, as far as I know, not fit for fast action gaming. For detecting stress, fatigue, sleepiness etc. they work quite well since these things don't require fast responses. One of the fastest BCIs are SSVEP, have a look http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6vyAQJGrXc
I think most people would be much quicker with a mouse.
However, for some very fundamental things like sleeping, these things could work very well. A sensor built into the sunvisor of a car that detects if the driver has fallen asleep and slams on the breaks would be something we might see quite soon.

Maybe a noise to wake the driver up would be better ??

Both the Emotiv and NeuroSky ones are based on actual EEG machines, so they do read your brain waves.
