Inspiration, Thoughts

Tan Le and the ‘Emotiv systems’ – Brain Computer Interface technology….

‘Brain Computer Interface technology’ , sounds freaky I know….. but in short you can control devices and manipulate objects by just thinking about it and with a little help from the mind-reading device from Emotive Systems.

Just saw this awesome TED talk by Tan Le , the founder of Emotiv systems, where she demos her creation which monitors brainwaves and uses the data to calibrate the device for performing  specific operations.

The EPOC set in action

The possibilities of this kind of application seem to be limitless and we can already see some creative minds thinking about how to use it with wheelchairs, automated homes, remote-less toy helicopters etc.

Can’t wait to get my hands on this to play with  !!
