When I was a kid I figured that by the time, I had kids we wouldn’t need things like remote controls and light switches. We would just think we wanted them on and they would come on. There are a few thought-controlled devices on the market, but we still have to use remotes to change channels on the TV.
A company called InteraXon has been showing off a very cool thought-controlled in-flight entertainment system. The entertainment system has four thought-controlled games designed for use while flying.
The company says that the system measures the brains electrical output and sorts it into waves. It can then react to alpha waves associated with relaxation and beta waves associated with concentration. Apparently, concentrating and relaxing are the controls for the games. The video below is of The Woz trying the system out.
