You may be aware that neuro-imagers have become much cheaper and many are available with a SDK. I think this will open up a huge gateway for much more intimate human interfaces. However, I am stumped at the practical uses and whether the human controlled interfaces will be much better to the user. A mind controlled TV remote (for hospital patients) came as an idea, but once again, I don't think it has much practical use. Could any point me to any practical uses of this device? I am sorry if I am posting in the wrong section or this is a very opened-ended question. Thanks for any input.
In the context of this question, neuroimager refers to a commercial grade EEG/EMG device. For example the emotiv epoch (considered a high end of what is commercially available) had 3 or 6 electrodes. The output of these electrodes is available to a developer through a software interface created by the manufacturer.
I believe that Jsn is seeking ideas of what can be done using this technology. I have completed a small iPhone app for another commercial grade EEG device - there is way too many artifacts from motion, muscle activity and poor device placement.
Practically speaking, it's a fun "toy" to play with, and it is very mobile, compared to a hundred electrode arrays.
