Brainloop: Navigating Google Earth with Brainwaves

Wired Next Fest, originally uploaded by dawachan1.

This was one of my favorite projects. Here one of the brain loop team members is navigating google earth solely with his brainwaves obtained from an Electro-encephalograph (EEG) device. 4 electrodes were sufficient and the man in the picture had learned to use his thoughts as if he were actually making a movement right or left. These thoughts were translated into directional movements that determined the path he took in Google's Earth application.
