A New Mind-Control TV Headset Developed by the BBC
In this age of technology and gadgets, another new Gadget is ready to add on to our lists. Have you ever seen a science fiction movie in which the character is moving stuff or interacting with the computer screen without touching it? It is not the stuff of a science fiction anymore as BBC are collaboration with The Place, A Tech Company to build a very affordable headset with which the user can change and select a program on iPlayer. The Headset went through a trial as well when 10 of BBC staff members tested it and used it successfully. Mr Cyrus Saihan, head of business development for the BBC’s Digital division said, “It was much easier for some than it was for others, but they all managed to get it to work.” Mr Saihan further mentioned, “It’s an internal prototype designed to give our programme makers, technologists and other users an idea of how this technology might be used in future.”
The device uses brain waves to sense and change the program. The same kind of technology we have already seen used to control drones. It would be very convenient for people with some sort of disability where they unable to use the remote or find difficulty in using it especially once it will become compatible with a normal TV set as well.
