While this app. may appear frivolous at first glance, it has some quite profound implications for the future.
Using XWave enables you to control on-screen objects with your mind. It trains the brain to monitor and ultimately control the depth of relaxation (derived from Alpha Waves) and your attention span (derived from Beta Waves).
So how does it work?
The device’s sensor reads the user’s brainwaves (through the skull), converts them into digital signals and then displays them in various colours on the screen of the iPhone.
The company blurb says:
“XWave, powered by NeuroSky eSense patented technologies, senses the faintest electrical impulses transmitted through your skull to the surface of your forehead and converts these analog signals into digital.
With XWave, you will be able to detect attention and meditation levels, as well as train your mind to control things. Objects in a game can be controlled, lights in your living room can change color depending on your mood; the possibilities are limited to only the power of your imagination.”
So it would seem that the evolution of mankind has taken yet another step – connecting your mind to your phone.
All this for $US99.99, battery not included!
