The Brainco “mind control” headband from Looxid Labs. Effectively hacks into brain signals with a range of applications — from helping to improve attention spans, to detecting disease, controlling smart home appliances or even a prosthetic device. According to Zenchuan Lei, the device “translates your brainwaves into electronic signals” BrainCo. demonstrated how a person could use the headband to manipulate a prosthetic hand using brainwaves or simply turn the lights on or off just by focusing on that.” Harvard and MIT scientists employ “neuro feedback,” as a means of allowing people to control their brain waves for various purposes. Brainco is developing the hardware and software required and hopes to have it available later this year for less than $150.
