Rather than use your Google Glass by touching or talking to it, you can now control the device using something else: your brainwaves. Indeed, thanks to a London-based startup called This Place, you can now control the Google Glass with your mind. This was made possible with the help of an additional Neurosky's EEG biosensor and the MindRDR app.
The sensor wraps around one side of your head and has a contact point with your temple, and is used to monitor changes in your brainwaves. The data collected from the biosensor are then sent to the app.
Basically, the way that it works is that the software monitors high levels of concentration from Neurosky's sensor. In the Google Glass screen, you will see a box with a window, and as concentration is increased, a white line will rise towards the top. Once the line reaches the top, it takes a picture of whatever else you want. Unfortunately, for now, there are only a few commands available, but the company said that more will come in the near future.
I have to say that the overall concept seems really interesting, even if it still in an early stage of development with only a few possibilities for now. But the good news is that if you want to try it out and you already have a Google Glass, you can buy the sensor today for $80 and the app is free on GitHub.
So, any thoughts?
