Mind-controlled Music Player built at University of Malta

brain control

In the future, we will be able to control things we own with our brain. Sure, it may sound crazy right now. But research is well under way to make that a reality. Researchers at University of Malta Researchers have already created a brain-controlled music player. This could work great for folks who have certain disabilities. The system works by reading the brain activity of a user.

the system works by reading the brain activity of a user. The brain works by sending electrical signals; these are picked up by electrodes placed at specific positions on the scalp through a process known as electroencephalography (EEG). These EEG recordings are then used to convert patterns of electrical brain activity into computer commands. The commands control the music player without the need of any physical movement; the user just needs to look at the right box. The program figures out where the user is looking through his or her brain patterns, allowing the music player to be controlled.

These devices are being developed for folks with severe disabilities but there are other applications. Technology is going to simply revolutionize how we interact with our devices.
