While Google is gearing up for to release Google Glass to the public, a new wearable technology is making headlines out of Japan. It’s called Neurocam, and it can read your mind!
Yes, it looks pretty silly – it’s bulky and you’re basically strapping an iPhone to the side of your head, but what it does is impression. In conjuction with an app, the iPhone can record and analyze your brainwaves and quantify your emotion on a scale from 0-100.
Using a prism to point the camera forward, the phone sees everything you see. When the number associated with your interest level exceeds 60, it begins recording whatever it is that’s making you feel that way and automatically turns it into a 5 second .GIF.
It’s like a personal video diary that collects mementos of everything that excites you in your day-to-day life. That’s one use case. Businesses can also use this technology for market research purposes. For example, a clothing store can monitor data from customers and see which products interest them the most. Lots of possibilities there.
