System Enables Users To 3D Print Their Thoughts
Neuro sensory technology connects the brain to a 3D printer creating objects of the imagination.
ThinkerThing, a company based in Chile, completely skips the design process by connecting users brains directly to a 3D printer through neuro-sensory technology. The ThinkerThing system uses an EmotivEPOC headset that detects emotions and facial movements.
While wearing the headset users look through design elements, guiding the software to choose features for the end product. The ThinkerThing system has produced an orange monster created by founder George Laskowsky, demonstrating that the technology is effective. With advances in neuroscience, the design process could be made more accurate.
