Brainwave-Reading Cellphone Demonstrated
September 23, 2008
A San Jose-based company called Neurosky has developed a prototype of a cellphone which reads brain waves and uses them for applications. At a technology exhibition held a week ago in San Francisco, the device was premiered with the following crazy brain-utilizing features:
(1) an application to show the degree of brain’s relaxation on the screen of a mobile phone by using a visualizer
(2) an application to show the degree of brain’s tension in chronological order after a user solves about 10 arithmetical problems (addition, multiplication, etc) shown on the screen of a mobile phone
(3) a video game application in which the user’s brain activity and concentration controls movement of the character
The future (of playing games on your phone) is here!!
