Google Glass has made a name for itself as head-mounted hardware that you can control with your voice and a sliding finger. Now, A london based company "This Place" is launching a new app "MindRDR" for providing one more way for controlling Google Glass. It will allow the users to control the Google Glass by their thoughts.
This MindRDR application bridges the Neurosky EEG biosensor and Google Glass. It allows users to take photos and share them on Twitter and Facebook by simply using brainwaves alone.
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. Focus some more, and the meter goes up again and the photo gets posted to Twitter.
"This Place" has put the code of this app on GitHub for others to use it and expand on it.
The functionality is still limited since the headset's biosensor can only measure some senses in the brain, not all. In addition, the app is not yet approved by Google.
It can be developed further — for example, to create applications to "train" people to concentrate better, or to play games, maybe to help suggest places to get a coffee when your sensor picks up that you're tired, or for medical applications, for example for people with mobility problems.
