Tan Le: A headset that reads your brainwaves | Video on TED.com

Tan Le's astonishing new computer interface reads its user's brainwaves, making it possible to control virtual objects, and even physical electronics, with mere thoughts (and a little concentration). She demos the headset, and talks about its far-reaching applications.

Tan Le is the founder & CEO of Emotiv Lifescience, a bioinformatics company that's working on identifying biomarkers for mental and other neurological conditions using electroencephalography (EEG).

Brain fitness meets HRV and EEG biometrics and neuroinformatics | SharpBrains | Cognitive Enhancement Technologies | Scoop.it

"When I started read­ing on the sub­ject of brain fit­ness a few years ago, I rec­og­nized the poten­tial to enhance a vari­ety of brain train­ing approaches, from med­i­ta­tion to cog­ni­tive train­ing, by deploy­ing devices mea­sur­ing brain activ­ity dur­ing train­ing, and for the bio­met­rics, neu­ro­feed­back and brain fit­ness com­mu­ni­ties to con­nect and work with each other. What I heard dur­ing the 2012 Sharp­Brains Sum­mit: Opti­miz­ing Health Through Neu­ro­plas­tic­ity, Inno­va­tion and Data demon­strated that things are indeed mov­ing in the right direction."

OpenVibe2 Applying Brain-Computer Interface For Children With ADHD - Forbes

OpenVibe2 Applying Brain-Computer Interface For Children With ADHD - Forbes | Cognitive Enhancement Technologies | Scoop.it

Using an academic headpiece, the user focuses on moving the rocket. Brain control is not in the distant future, it's alive and finding useful applications for itself in both academics and the gaming community. "At Futur-en-Seine last week in Paris, OpenVibe2, supported by INRIA, a French research intitute (Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique) and nine commercial partners (including Ubisoft, Kylotonn and Black Sheep) showed off its open source software platform that enables researchers or game developers to design and test Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs). A BCI is a communication systems enabling users to send commands to computers by means of brain activity via a headset fitted with electrodes.

But it’s not the commercial gaming applications that are most interesting here, it’s the application of BCI to children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)."

"If only cyclists and motorists could read each other’s minds. Think how much better it would be out on the road.

MIT computer geek Arlene Ducao has seen such a future. Ducao, a computer programmer and digital animator at the MIT Media Lab’s Information Ecology group, is shown wearing MindRider a bicycle helmet hacked with an EEG sensor that displays the wearer’s stress levels so that idiot in the Escalade knows to back off."

Brain-controlled: the user interface of the future | Digital Trends

Brain-controlled: the user interface of the future | Digital Trends | Cognitive Enhancement Technologies | Scoop.it

"Brain-computer interfaces are quickly becoming more advanced and accessible, and some of the ways they're being used are truly mind-boggling.

Why toil with the pressing of buttons or tilting of joysticks when controlling something can be as simple as thinking about it? This kind of technology may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but in reality, it’s actually been around for decades. The development of electroencephalography (EEG) technology can be traced back to the 1920′s, but it wasn’t until recently that we figured out a way to use neurofeedback to control electronic devices. Nowadays, we can use brain-computer interfaces (BCI’s) to control everything from prosthetic limbs, to robotic arms, cars, and even things as simple as your computer’s cursor."

Music recorded from EEG waves helps to heal tsunami victims...In the wake of last year's devastating tsunami, artist Masaki Batoh sought to address the emotional wreckage caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The multi-talented Batoh has combined two decades of acupuncture work with his career as head of the musical group Ghost to create an album dedicated to those affected by the event. Dropping tomorrow, Brain Pulse Music (BPM) sets traditional spiritual tracks alongside music recorded from the brain waves of patients.
