If you are lucky enough to own a pair of the Google Glass eyewear, you might be interested in this new application called MindRDR that connects to hardware in the form of the Neurosky MindWave Mobile, and has been created to allow users to control their Google Glass device using just their mind.
MindRDR is a new free open source application which connects the Neurosky EEG biosensor and Google Glass. Enabling users to take photos and share them on Twitter and Facebook by simply using brainwaves.
The MindRDR technology has been developed by London-based user experience company This Place and can be seen in action in the video below.
“MindRDR connects Google Glass with a device to monitor brain activity, allowing users to take pictures and socialise them on Twitter or Facebook. No physical interaction required. Once a user has decided to share an image, we analyse their brain data and provide an evaluation of their ability to control the interface with their mind. This information is attached to every shared image.
Core metrics from the mind are collected and expressed as Meditation and Attention levels.
We use these values to build up session information that charts your concentration levels over time. Using this information, we present scores and and accompanying detail about your performance during the session with fun emoji”
