Forum Nokia has released a short video showcasing a project titled ThinkContacts, a mobile application developed for the Maemo platform using QT. It allows the user to select a contact from the phone’s address book and make a phone call by only using the brain’s activity. It is explained and demonstrated in this video using a Nokia N900 and a NeuroSky Mindset headset. Earlier this year we brought to you Brain Maze, which also used this technology as a primary input method for an S60 5th Edition game. Check out the video after the jump.
The interaction between user and software is via brainwaves. The user needs to use a headsetwhich reads the user’s brainwaves, uses an analog-to-digital converter and sends the digitalized information via Bluetooth to the phone. The byte sequence, called packet, sent by the headset is translated into the user’s level of meditation and attention by using an algorithm provided by the headset’s company.Tags | Applications, Breaking News, Connectivity, Demo, Forum Nokia, Maemo, Maemo 5, N-Series, N900, NeuroSky, Nokia, QT, QT For Maemo, Research & Development, ThinkContacts, Video
