Neurocam Analyzes Your Brainwaves to Take Photos For You
Pressing a button is so 20th century. And winking or asking Google Glass to do it for you seems like quite a lot of effort, too. So, for the truly lazy, Neurocam analyzes your brainwaves to work out when you want a picture taking.
Demoed at Japan’s Human Sensing 2013 conference, Neurocam uses brainwave sensors that have cropped up in, to gauge your interest on what’s happening around you. Judging on a scale of 0 to 100—they don’t say exactly how that scale works, sadly—it’ll start recording video when the value tops 60. That footage is then turned into a 5-second GIF, reports DigInfo.
The neurocam arose from the neurowear project, which is involved with items that use brain-waves and bio-sensors, like necomimi, which works using brain-waves. The algorithm for quantifying brain-waves was co-developed with Associate Professor Mitsukura at Keio University.
In the future, the project team aims to create an emotional interface, which could link a range of devices and services to people’s individual thoughts and feelings.
