Deepa Iyengar at NEXT Berlin 2012

Bending spoons with the power of your mind? What reminds of Uri Geller, actually is a mind-controlled game Deepa Iyengar presented at NEXT Berlin 2012.

She is co-founder and CEO of mindgames, a company developing mind-controlled software. The technology behind the software works like EEGs used in hospitals: a brainwave headset measures the electrical signals of the brain and uses them to control software. For the future, Iyengar expects this kind of technology to be increasingly used in the everyday life of consumers.

“There’s going to be an explosion in work on how much information can we get from recording this electrical activity without going through the scull”, she adds with the curiosity and enthusiasm of both a neuroscientist and entrepreneur.
