Dutch designer develops world’s first mind-controlled toy car
Washington – A Dutch design graduate has designed the world’s first mind-controlled lightweight toy car that moves only when the user reaches the right level of concentration.
According to Cnet, the toy car made by Alejo Bernal from Design Academy Eindhoven can be driven by the users as long as they wear a commercially available Neurosky EEG headset.
Bernal told a design magazine that the increased light intensity of the vehicle indicates the level of attention users have reached.
Once the maximum level is achieved and retained for 7 seconds, the vehicle starts moving forward, Bernal explained.
Bernal added that his project can help users to develop deeper, longer concentration by exercising the brain.
The toy car, however, is a working prototype for Bernal’s graduation project.
