Telekinetic Google Glass


A group in London called "The Place" has launched an app called MindRDR which allows Google (GOOG) Glass wearers to take a picture of what they are looking at by reading brainwaves.

The new app works via a bio-sensor attached to Glass, and picks up brainwaves that correlate to "focusing". If a user strongly focuses on an item while connected to the hardware, a snapshot will be taken.

Photos can even be uploaded to Twitter via the mind, if a user focuses again right after the original picture is taken.

    I think this may move the bar for GOOG/GOOGL and their wearable Glass product. Just a weeeee tad, methinks. Heck . . . gotta go and buy GOOG/GOOGL now.

     

    OOOPPPS - Good thing I already own GOOG/GOOGL (2-1 split, ah, yes, I remember that).

     

    GOOG is all you need, GOOG is all you need, GOOG is all you need, GOOG is all you need . . .

     

    Do you get the idea, now? You do, doncha?

     

    UNBELIEVABLE NEWS – Is this a joke? It is, right? Do we really live long enough to actually see this happening here? What's happening here?

     

    Darn . . . now I have to get up early and watch that bar move HIGHER for GOOG/GOOGL.

     

    See ya.

    Hi, Davidoff:

     

    Funny. No, I do not partake of any treatment, however I finally decided to retire yesterday and celebrated into the wee hours (obviously). Sorry for the "Happy Rant."

     

    Take care . . .

    What an absolutely disgusting idea. What possible function could that device serve other than as a tool for removing the privacy of the user and anyone else in sight of the user.

    This is classic google...a fabulous idea with exactly what use for the masses in mind?

     

    Vs

     

    Apple...healthkit; a fabulous idea with very clear uses in mind for the masses.

     

    I'm not dissing Google; it's their culture: One part genius that provides great ideas, one part genius that interferes with our privacy

    With all due respect, methinks you think too much.

    The present version of Google Glass will flop hard, like a dying fish.
