The Winter Olympics in Canada this month will be a chance to see more than just the figure skating, as the games are showcasing a “thought-controlled” lighting experiment. “A Canadian company has created what it calls the ‘largest thought-controlled computing installation.’ It’s an experiment that lets visitors to the Olympics use their brainwaves to control the lights at three major landmarks in Canada, including Niagara Falls. ‘When people put on the headsets and find themselves increasing the brightness of the lights by just thinking about it, you can almost see their brains explode,’ says Trevor Coleman, chief operating officer for InteraXon, the company that has created this installation. As consumers get more comfortable with going beyond the keyboard and the mouse to interact with their computers, companies are looking for alternate ways to make the experience better.”
