This Brainwave-Activated Camera Automatically Records What Interests You

At the recent “Human Sensing 2013” conference in Japan, an iPhone-based camera system that is triggered and controlled by brainwaves was unveiled.

The “Neurocam” requires the user to strap on an iPhone in order to connect brainwave sensors to his/her head—these sensors would then measure the level of interest the user has about the things the user looks at based on his/her brain activity.

Measuring interest on a scale of 0 to 100, the Neurocam’s camera shutter will be triggered once it registers brainwaves that go above an interest level of 60.

Keeping a record of what truly interests its user, this hi-tech camera plays back imagery in the form of five-second GIF animations.
