NeuroMash is a casual mind control casino gaming company, by mashing-up classical gaming with a unique and novel form of user interaction. More

NeuroMash, is a "casual gaming" mind control casino gaming company utilizing newly available third-party mobile, inexpensive EEG-reading headsets for online casino games. The headset needed for our gaming purposes, is developed by NeuroSky and utilizes raw brainwave signals to control our gaming outcomes. We chose NeuroMash as our company name because we wanted to “mash-up” classical gaming with this unique and novel form of user interaction. We believe our new genre of casual “mind control” casino gaming will offer a "disruptive" level of user interaction right along with currently available traditional casual/social casino gaming. Just imagine using a "mind trick” to beat the house in slots. Mind control casino gaming will offer gamers what they have always wanted, the power to self influence their odds of winning. Nothing captures the imagination like the power of the mind and playing our “mind games” in multiplayer environments, such as our upcoming “Neuropoker” game, will teach you how to hone your real-world poker skills and become a better competitor. We are asking you to join us at this critical moment in time for mind control technology and to “cross the chasm” with us!

We are currently at the beginning of the mind game evolution. This is a unique moment to join a brand new industry by helping us put this genre of technology on the gaming map!

First, we must work towards the Beta Release of NeuroSlot and our single player line of casino games. The beta release will be built through a cross platform strategy using Unity 4.2 and will interface with Neurosky’s MindWave and MindWave Mobile hardware. These will be released on Android, iOS, PC and Mac. For instance, you could view a detailed video description of our prototype for Neuroslot in the gallery section of this campaign. Upon the successful Beta completion, we plan on publishing “Neuroslot” (Slots mind game) followed by “Neurowar” (Casino Wars mind game), “Neurojack” (Blackjack mind game) and “Neuroulette” (Roulette mind game) on Neurosky’s gaming portal.

Furthermore, each headset comes with several unique algorithms developed by NeuroSky including concentration, relaxation, blinks, task difficulty and task familiarity activities. To that effect, along with our single player line of casino mind games, we are currently working on an interactive social multi-player poker mind game. Just imagine playing Texas Hold ‘Em and although your opponents can’t see your cards, they can see your various biosignals. Yes, we are giving the online Poker enthusiasts what the “live players” have always had. “Tells!” For the first time ever, online poker players will have tells on their opponents. For instance, your opponents will be able to see both your own and your competitor’s level of relaxation and focus during the game.  In the process, you will learn to make better gambling decisions and become better online poker players. Neuropoker can become a valuable “learning tool” for live players! Live players can monitor their online playing activity while playing Neuropoker and learn how to control their real-world poker skills and become a better competitor. Please note that Neuropoker will be a web-based only game and will be offered on Neuromash.com in a multi-player environment.

We are on Fundrazr and The CrowdFunder Show because we know that this is the best way to get our “mind control” casino games in your hands as soon as possible! With all of the above in mind, we estimate we will need $50,000 for the launch of our initial single player casino mind games and initial development of Neuropoker and other upcoming multi-player mind control casino games.

We have put a lot of time, funding and effort into our project but like many things in life not everything can be completed by just a few. You and your contribution will enable us to reach our goal. You will be a part of a world first in enabling us to complete production of our unique platform. If you believe in our futuristic vision of casino gaming, our passion, then please donate to this project! 

We would like to thank every backer for any contribution and any assistance in the realization of our project. Share our concept of translation of Neuromash among your friends and relatives on Facebook and Twitter and together we will bring Neuromash to life! 

If you have any questions or you just want to say hello, be sure to contact us on the comments section of our campaign. For Press Inquiries please contact Mehran Bagherzadeh at Mehran@neuromash.com

The core Neuromash team includes Mehran, Daniel and Kevin. Our passion is cutting edge technology and we aim to integrate technology into our everyday activities in a natural and fitting way. Mehran and Kevin are life long friends working in the tech and business sector.They came across thought-controlled computer interface technology back in the fall of 2010 and eventually became infatuated by it. Dan joined the group in the following summer of 2011 right out of college with a fresh degree in computer science and somewhere along the way we combined our backgrounds in computer science and entrepreneurship to create Neuromash. We believe that “mind control” technology is in its infancy and will only make every day life more interactive and entertaining. That is why we are asking for your support. We are eager to listen to your feedback once you receive and play our single player casino mind games. Join us in creating this new genre of casino games and let’s share our novel vision with the world.

What sort of emotional states can we use to play the single player line of games?

A user will be able to set as concentration or relaxation as his or her desired emotional state to play the 4 casino single player games for now. As new algorithms for other emotional states are developed for the headset, we will include them into updates to the games for users to choose from.        

Will you be adding new algorithms to Neuropoker?

Yes, we will be adding new algorithms to Neuropoker, as they become available to us. We strive towards giving online poker players insight into their psyche!

Are the single-player line of games and Neuropoker purely brain controlled?

Yes, the games will be principally brain controlled. The only way a user can have an effect on his or her gaming outcome is by altering his or her emotional states. Players will be able to view his or her opponent’s emotional states as well as their own in these applications.

Are the single player line of games and Neuropoker playable without the headset?

Yes, they are playable without the headsets. But, they are no longer considered mind games and are back to being classic casino games. A mind control casino game is a casino game where the odds of the game are altered by a users emotional state “captured and analyzed” by the headset.One last note regarding classic casino gaming, we plan on eventually offering “mind control and classic casino gaming" on Neuromash.com
