Tech buzz: MindRDR lets Google Glass users take photos and post them using only concentration




A team at interactive studio company This Place has announced the development of an app for Google Glass that provides a bridge between the wearable device (via Bluetooth) and a Neurosky EEG biosensor headset—allowing the wearer of both to take a photograph and post it to Facebook or Twitter using only their mind.

 
Google Glass has pros and cons—it's worn on the face, thus it doesn't have to be held, and with a lens right over the eye, it can be used for a huge variety of purposes. On the down side, commands are given by voice, "Okay Glass…" or by sliding a finger along the side-frame. By most accounts, both approaches leave much to be desired—speaking out loud to your device in public can be either annoying to others or embarrassing to the user, while stroking the side-frame can grow tiresome. Into this void steps the folks at This Place—they want people to be able to give Google Glass commands using only thoughts. MindRDR is just the first tiny baby-step. The app takes data from the EEG sensor and converts it to visual information via a white line overlaid over imagery in the camera's viewfinder. Concentrating on the line causes it to slowly move upwards. When it reaches the top of the viewfinder, a picture is taken—repeating the exercise results in the photo being posted to either the user's Facebook or Twitter account.
Clearly, this is not rocket science, but it's not supposed to be. The team at This Place acknowledge the limitations of the app but at the same time suggest it should be viewed not as something anyone would want now, but something that will develop into something truly useful, which users will want. To help make that happen, they've released the code for the app, making it open source. The hope is that other groups will take the technology further, adding functionality, reducing the size of the EEG sensor—doing things that will result in users someday being able to control the device entirely with their mind.

New Algorithm Finds the Most Beautiful -Shortest Route Across a City

Forget the Shortest Route Across a City; New Algorithm Finds the Most Beautiful

If you prefer beautiful routes over short ones, GPS mapping algorithms are of little use. But Yahoo researchers have come up with an approach that could change that.

 

The way we navigate in cities has been revolutionized in the last few years by the advent of GPS mapping programs. Enter your start and end location and these will give you the shortest route from A to B.

That’s usually the best bet when driving, but walking is a different matter. Often, pedestrians want the quietest route or the most beautiful but if they turn to a mapping application, they’ll get little help.

Tech Update:Windows 9 will see Microsoft paying more attention to desktop

According to various reports, the next version of Windows, codenamed Threshold, will reportedly arrive in March 2015. Notably, Threshold will incorporate a variety of features targeted at Windows "desktop" users who predominantly do work with their machines using a keyboard and mouse.

According to ZDNet, Threshold is being planned around a number of primary product versions, or SKUs, each of which would cater towards different types of devices.

Specifically, a "modern" consumer SKU will be catered towards Windows Phones, phablets and hybrid devices with an emphasis towards Modern apps. In addition, a "traditional" consumer SKU would offer the highest level of familiarity with users already familiar with a Windows PC.

Finally, an enterprise SKU will deliver all the usual features in the consumer editions, but with added support for group policy and device management, among other enterprise-centric features. And unlike the SKUs for consumers, the enterprise version might be subject to IT policies for organizations that do not want to automatically adopt Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) regular updates.
