  • Virtual Reality help
    If you can fly a plane, using the brain as the controller. Then why can you not find a way to program something that detects the thoughts of the buttons on a controller? Using any type of virtual reality device such as the oculus rift. One can then purge them selves into the other world without worrying about the real world consequences of reacting with a controller that is by far obsolete. Giving the user full control of every action as they can play to their hearts desire. Deleting the use for any type of need for another controller across all systems, opening a huge universally endless system of virtual worlds.

  • Brain Driven Hybrid Vehicle
    Its an Electric car which uses solar power as well as Electric supply to charge the batteries... and also it is designed with three driving modes one is NORMAL DRIVING mode with steering, second one is KEYBOARD DRIVING MODE... ie, in the same way how we play racing games in computers. The third...... and the most important one is THINK AND DRIVE MODE by which driving can be done just by thinking..... ie, by just thinking of actions like push, pull, left, right etc. these thoughts are captured using a EEG headset and are processed in computer to drive the vehicle.

  • Attention powered Car - new webisodes
    The RAC Attention Powered Car program is now concentrating on what drivers find most distracting and how to deal with the issues. Mobile phones and texting are the most distracting, but eating and drinking, your mood and the behaviour of passengers have unexpectedly big effects. The average driver has a distraction of more than 2 seconds every minute!

  • Thought recoginition software
    In your research of the electrical impulses generated by thought I know you can narrow down the impulse so that each impulse can be tracked or assigned to a specific event or character. Such as the letters in the alphabet; this will lead to word recoginition by grouping thoses impulses of each letter to the corresponding word. the result is thought recoginition software > by wearing a version of your headset the user will be able to "think" their thoughts into coherent thoughts not just brainwaves. Uses would be not only in the business world but also in medical.
    look forwarding to hearing fr om you on this. I have been working on it for some time but do not have the software; I believe with wh ere you are on measuring brainwaves we can get there.

  • Eye tracking technology by SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) powers new concept of passive eye gaze interaction for an entirely new gaming experience
    While at the IFA in Berlin, new trends for consumer electronics are presented, SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) introduces a completely new form of user experience for video games powered by SMI's contact-free eye tracking technology. The experimental survival horror game called "Sophia", created by game designer Martin Dechant fr om University of Regensburg, uses real-time information on the gaze behavior of players to adapt the story of the game. A player's gaze triggers unexpected events leading to an individual experience, more thrill and ultimately more fun. The idea of this passive gaze interaction goes far beyond active eye control, e.g. wh ere the mouse is replaced by eye gaze. The game analyzes the user's gaze to generate individual real-time content and user feedback. The goal of SMI is to further study and refine the "Sophia" concept in cooperation with the developer of the game and to use it as a blueprint for gaze interaction in other application fields.
