Brain power: app lets users control Google Glass with their minds

The British start-up This Place has demonstrated a Google Glass app that, when used in combination with an EEG (electroencephalographic) headset, allows the wearer to control the device through brain activity alone. So far, it is already possible to take a photo and post it to social networks entirely through brainwaves. And that’s just the beginning.

The demo was carried out with Google Glass and the MindWave Mobile headset by Neurosky, which is capable of detecting and analyzing brain activity. The app intervenes to translate the brainwave patterns into software commands and transmit them to Google Glass.
