No more dialing? Mobile phones powered by the mind take hands-free to a new level
2011 04 15
It seems even dialing a mobile number is becoming too time consuming for our fast-paced time precious society.
But researchers in America have come up with a solution - a mobile phone which uses the power of thought to make a call - and you do not have to lift a finger.
Users wear a specially designed headband which is hooked up to a Blue tooth device that wirelessly sends commands to a Nokia N73 mobile phone.
(Brain) cell phone: Researchers in California have created a way to place a call on a mobile phone using just your thoughts.
The technology works by responding to cues from the brain and experts believe anyone with training will be able to master the technique.
It is hoped the break-through will be able to create safer hands free mobile phones to help the disabled and elderly and help out professionals in high pressured working environments.
According to the Huffington Post, developer Tzyy-Ping Jung, a scientist at the Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego, said the device relies on electroencephalogram (EEG) electrodes on the scalp to work out what the brain is trying to say.
He believes it could be 100 per cent accurate with just a bit of training.
He said: ’From our experience, anyone can do it.’
Users wear an EEG headband, like the one pictured above, which detects brain signals and a Bluetooth gadget sends instructions to the phone.
This uses algorithms to process the signals.
During trials, users were shown digits from zero to nine flashing at different speeds on a screen and this was detected by the electrodes.
Those used in the initial experiments were between 70 per cent 85 per cent accurate when trying to dial a 10 digit phone number.
Thought powered computers have been around for a while, however this is the first time it has been adapted for mobile phones.

Easter - Christian or Pagan?

Contrary to popular belief, Easter does not represent the "historical" crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In reality, the gospel tale reflects the annual "crossification" of the sun through the vernal equinox (Spring), at which time the sun is "resurrected," as the day begins to become longer than the night.
Rather than being a "Christian" holiday, Easter celebrations date back ...

Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of Tennessee have found that environmental stressors – from the Trail of Tears to the Civil War – led to significant changes in the shape of skulls in the eastern and western bands of the Cherokee people.
The findings highlight the role of environmental factors in shaping our physical characteristics.

Last December, an unsettling Nature Neuroscience study found that mice who were taught to associate the smell of cherry blossoms with pain produced offspring who feared the smell of cherry blossoms, even if they had never been exposed to it before. We knew that the process was epigenetic—that it was not hard-wired in the permanent genetic structure of the mouse—but ...
