MindRDR Is A Google #Glass App You Control With Your Thoughts | #cyborgs #throughmind

MindRDR Is A Google #Glass App You Control With Your Thoughts | #cyborgs #throughmind | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it
Google Glass has made a name for itself (somewhat infamously) as head-mounted hardware that you can control with your voice and a sliding finger. Now, a team..

luiy's insight:

MindRDR, as the app is called, links up Google Glass with another piece of head-mounted hardware, the Neurosky EEG biosensor, to create a communication loop.

 

The Neurosky biosensor picks up on brainwaves that correlate to your ability to focus. The app then translates these brainwaves into a meter reading that gets superimposed on the camera view in Google Glass. As you “focus” more with your mind, the meter goes up, and the app takes a photograph of what you are seeing in front of you.

Réalité augmentée, réalité orientée, par le philosophe Eric Sadin | #AR #enhanced #cyborgs

Réalité augmentée, réalité orientée, par le philosophe Eric Sadin | #AR #enhanced #cyborgs | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it

La notion de «réalité augmentée» peut être prise au pied de la lettre dans la mesure où le procédé permet de saisir des dimensions dissimulées rendues manifestes, révélant un panorama élargi des choses non directement perceptibles par les sens. Appellation qui pourrait tout autant faire l’objet d’une torsion, vu les conseils à vocation généralement commerciale, qui appelleraient un léger déplacement de la dimension plutôt flatteuse «d’augmentation», pour la prise en compte de la force «orientante», devant alors plus justement être qualifiée de «réalité orientée». ...

TOURNANT COGNITIF

 

La réalité augmentée expose la preuve patente d’une puissance virtuellement omnisciente de la technique collant désormais au corps ou faisant corps à notre perception des choses, à l’instar des Google Glass ou autres lunettes connectées qui adjoignent à l’expérience quotidienne un réservoir en théorie infini et évolutif d’indications en rapport. Ultime étape avant l’implémentation de lentilles au contact des rétines, nous érigeant comme des cyborgs non pas augmentés d’organes artificiels, mais enveloppés de données individuellement ajustées à chacun de nos «profils» et de nos situations. Dispositifs en sophistication croissante, dont on ne peut réduire la portée et les enjeux à de seules informations ou conseils prétendument «pertinents», mais qui appellent de saisir le «tournant cognitif» qui s’instaure.

L’armée de terre américaine se tourne vers la réalité augmentée Grâce au casque Q-Warrior, il sera prochainement possible pour les militaires américains de recevoir de nombreuses informations directement devant les yeux.

Grâce au casque Q-Warrior, il sera prochainement possible pour les militaires américains de recevoir de nombreuses informations directement devant les yeux.

 

Ainsi avec ce casque à la Iron Man, il sera par exemple possible de balayer du regard pour démasquer des individus recherchés dans une foule, de prendre et transmettre des images vidéo avec la caméra, d’identifier des points sur une carte et même de diriger le combattant vers un point d’extraction. Ces lunettes intelligentes auront la particularité d’être beaucoup plus robustes que celles disponibles pour consommateurs comme les Google Glass. L’armée aurait déjà procédé à ses premières commandes auprès de BAE Systems.

The Future of Being Human | #enhanced #umwelt | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it

Via Claude Emond
luiy's insight:

IEET Fellow David Eagleman discuses how we and other animals perceive reality. He referres to the umwelt in the context, of how our technologies will enhance our experience of the umwelt so that we can experience difference properties of the world.

 

“In the semiotic theories of Jakob von Uexküll and Thomas A. Sebeok, umwelt (plural: umwelten; from the German Umwelt meaning “environment” or “surroundings”) is the “biological foundations that lie at the very epicenter of the study of both communication and signification in the human [and non-human] animal.” The term is usually translated as “self-centered world”. Uexküll theorised that organisms can have different umwelten, even though they share the same environment.” - wikipedia

Perfect memory, #enhanced vision, an expert golf swing: The future of brain #implants | #health #cyborgs | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it
How soon can we expect to see brain implants for perfect memory, enhanced vision, hypernormal focus or an expert golf swing? We're closer than you might think.

Via Carole Maurage, JP Fourcade
luiy's insight:

Today, effective brain-machine interfaces have to be wired directly into the brain to pick up the signals emanating from small groups of nerve cells. But nobody yet knows how to make devices that listen to the same nerve cells that long. Part of the problem is mechanical: The brain sloshes around inside the skull every time you move, and an implant that slips by a millimeter may become ineffective.

 

Another part of the problem is biological: The implant must be nontoxic and biocompatible so as not to provoke an immune reaction. It also must be small enough to be totally enclosed within the skull and energy-efficient enough that it can be recharged through induction coils placed on the scalp at night (as with the recharging stands now used for some electric toothbrushes).

 We are only aware of about 10% of our brain activity, so scientists at a lab in Barcelona are working to increase that percentage. They hope to enable us to perform better in a world which is increasingly overwhelmed by data

luiy's insight:

Scientists involved in this European Union research project hope to help us become smarter and more efficient by listening to and stimulating our subconscious so it can mobilize the power of our own creativity. And to do that, they are using complex technology.

According to Pedro Omedas, a computer scientist at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra:

 

“We are integrating virtual reality and mixed reality platforms to allow us to screen information in an immersive way. We also have systems to help us extract information from these platforms. We use tracking systems to understand how a person moves within a given space. We also have various physiological sensors (heart rate, breathing etc.) that capture signals produced by the user – both conscious and subconscious. Our main challenge is how to integrate all this information coherently.”

 

Anna Mura is a neuroscientist at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

“The system allows us to upgrade subconscious processes to make them conscious,” she said. “This can help us assimilate information in complex databases – information that would be impossible to decipher without that extra help.”
