I recently saw a video on CNN about a new product from a company called NeuroSky, which enables users to control a floating ball with their mind. The user wears a headset that reads brain signals and sends a message to the device which floats a ball inside a cylinder.
The technology will be marketed as a toy at first and later extended into reality T.V. shows, automobiles, and video games. It’s also being used for professional archers competing in the Olympics.
Imagine this type of technology in conjunction with handhelds and touch screens in which you could send a tweet with your thoughts or download an app to relieve stress. You may even be able to connect with your audience in new emotional and intellectual ways which have never before been achievable.
NeuroSky boasts a Brainwave Visualizer, Bluetooth Audio, Developer Tools, and even a video game with a character named NeuroBoy in which the user can mentally float objects and throw them.
It seems like the stuff of science fiction, but technology is changing the way we live our lives everyday. The future is now! You knew I was going to say that, right?
