Google Glass is a head – mounted hardware that you can control with your voice and a sliding finger. A team based out of London is launching a new app that it hopes will kick start an even easier way of interacting with the device through the mind.
MindRDR links up Google Glass with another piece of head – mounted hardware, the Neurosky EEG biosensor, to create a communication circle.
The Neurosky biosensor picks up on brainwaves that correlate to your ability to focus. The app then translates these brainwaves into a meter reading that gets overlaid on the camera view in Google Glass. As one “focuses”, the meter goes up, and the app takes a photograph of what you are seeing in front of you.
There are devices out in the world that have even more sensors on them, although some run very expensive.
What will be the next century of technology? Google Glass or something even more powerful?
