Power of thought to control Niagara Falls lightshow

From TGDaily.com:

Visitors to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver next week will be able to control lightshows at major landmarks by the power of thought alone.

Toronto-based InteraXon has invented a headset that picks up the user’s alpha and beta waves and translates them into commands.

“We’re like interpreters fluent in the language of the mind: our system analyses the frequency of your brainwaves and then translates them into a control signal for the computer to understand,” says the company.

The system will be used to control lightshows at Toronto’s CN Tower, Ottawa’s Parliament buildings and Niagara Falls.

  1. Thank you for the write-up!

    I’m from the InteraXon team and we’re almost ready (4 days) to demo our project and the power of thought-controlled computing. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact Trevor Coleman (the COO) via our website.

    See you at the Games!

  2. Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for finding the blog. This is an awesome project your team has done. I’m just wondering how the technology interprets the brainwaves. Do the brainwaves tell the system what colour they want? Or tell it to change colour?
