Photos of the brain-computer interface from the Dublin Visual Studio and SQL Server launch event


At long last, I’ve posted the photos of some of the many participants who tried out the Mind Balance brain-computer interface at the Dublin launch event.  I previously chronicled the story of the resurrection of Cerebus, our wireless brain-computer interface, prior to the launch event.  Many participants at the event, including Clare (as pictured below) had a chance to try Mind Balance, and successfully used only the electrical activity at the surface of their head to control the Mawg as he walked the tightrope.


Here are the photos, the summary of what this thing is, and the original Microsoft case study.  What a fun night!

    Either that or you’re one of the 5% of people with a weird brain… which, depending on your perspective, may be a good thing :)
