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.

  1. this is both exciting and scary. I mean it is literaly able to read your thoughts, I can see someone who is really angry creating all sorts of weapons and stuff to do some harm. Far fetched I know but hey it could happen.

      I agree, this will lead to some very strange stuff. Although, this is one of the most exciting technologies to come along. This will democratize product manufacturing and give regular folks/creatives the ability to more easily become entrepreneurs.
