Have you ever had an instance in your life when you see and hear something intriguing that you would like to look back at and/or reflect upon with better clarity? However, in these instances, you were too slow to bring out your phone or camera or you simply did not have anything to record your experiences. As a result, you were not able to archive the event exactly as it was to share to others and for your own personal collection, a trend that has integrated itself into our culture as a result of the development of technology. An upcoming solution that will aide in our endeavors to capture particular moments in our life is the NeuroCam.
The NeuroCam is a wearable camera system that consists of a headset device that can be attached to an iPhone. The headset technology consist of brainwave sensors that pick up brainwave patterns that fluctuate according to our mental reactions to what we see visually. From these brainwave patterns, the NeuroCam is able to estimate our level of interest on a scale of 0 to 100. If our interest level exceeds 60, the iPhone will automatically begin recording and will put the recorded video in an album to view later. At the moment, the NeuroCam is only a concept model that will be improved upon by it developers. Furthermore,The NeuroCam was also a result of the neurowear project that works with devices that use brainwaves and bio-sensors. The developers of the project hope to be able to create an emotional interface in the future, so that devices and services can be connected to people's individual thoughts and feelings.
Just as it is now, the NeuroCam can already be used for a variety of activities in our lives. The NeuroCam can take how we blog and video blog to the next level. in blogs and video blogs we talk about what interest us and about ideas, events, and problems that affect us and those around us. This technology will allow to take note of things that we think about or take interest of subconsciously. We might see an act of kindness, a video, an image, a person, etc that may yield many thoughts, but that are simply overwhelmed and shoved aside by the constant stream of thoughts about what we need to do at the present time. Thinking more about this, the NeuroCam is simply another way of collection data and information that pertain to us. The data and information that we collect reflects our interests and maybe even our passions. We can use it to learn more about ourselves and to draw inspiration and realizations that can lead to innovation.
