The much famous Google Glass can now do things which you would not have even thought of till now. Google Glass can now read your mind and take actions accordingly. The power to read your thoughts with the help of new applications available can make your Google glass take actions consequently.
A London based start-up “This Place” has developed an application by the name of “MindRDR” that lets the Google glass connect with another piece of headset that consists of a sensor. It is quiet fascinating to know how a single piece of Glass can do whatever you think of and also it is quiet logical as well. How is it done is the question running on everyone’s mind.
Let’s have a quick look at it.
The sensor analyses the user’s brain waves gauge the level of focus of the user. All the user needs to do is to concentrate on the Google Glass’s screen until a white horizontal line starts to appear. There is a minimum level of concentration required that is termed as the threshold concentration and when it crosses that limit, the MindRDR conveys to Google Glass to take a picture. If that’s not enough, then stay focused and Google Glass will even upload the photo to social media.
This new application has not yet been approved by Google team but Google will not show any hesitancy in approving it. The application “MindRDR” links up Google glass with another head mounted hardware called as the Neurosky which happens to be EEG biosensor. The Neurosky is basically used to create communication loop with the Google Glass. Well, We don’t feel that this application lacks anything but it might get a little bit of clumsy wearing two devices over your head. However, going through the reports, the two headgears are potentially very light.
This is what the CEO of the company had to say about this “Google Glass is one of the world’s most recognizable and popular pieces of wearable technology, but after getting our hands on it, the challenge of connecting it to brainwaves was one we could not resist,”
Have a look at this to understand how it all works.
