A London-based startup has created an app that lets users take pictures simply by concentrating.
Created by design studio This Place, MindRDR uses both Google Glass and a brain activity-monitoring device to take photos and then post them to social media without ever touching a screen.
The brain activity device – known as the Neurosky EEG biosensor – tracks the kind of neural patterns the brain exhibits when it’s focusing on something. MindRDR then translates those patterns into actions – telling Glass to take a photo and then post it, all powered by thought.
While not an impulse purchase by any means, this is an amazing technology breakthrough that has major implications for the future. The MindRDR app is free, but Glass and the biosensor together cost $1,838.
