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 head—these sensors would then measure the level of interest the user has about the thing he is looking at based on his 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 interest its user, this high-tech camera plays back imagery in the form of 5-second GIF animations.

Watch the video below to see it in action.
