Brain Waves for Control
When I wrote the AVR Book , I added a figure (seen on the left), to show how in remote future, you might be able to download programs in a Microcontroller.
How naive I was!
Because, it seems controlling gadgets with brainwaves is not so futuristic afterall! A company called IBVA Technologies (Interactive Brainwave Visual Analyzer) has been in the business of creating hardware and software for many computer platforms, to use Brainwaves to control other programs on the computer, or other gadgets. And they have been doing this for a long time now.
Hope to see this technology being made available more easily so that it can be used in day to day applications.
