Thought-controlled computer for disabled soon

An innovative technology that could enable people to operate a computer using their brainwaves.



Washington: An innovative technology that could enable people to operate a computer without using a keyboard or mouse – only their brainwaves – have been developed by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev software engineering students.

The BGU technology features a helmet equipped with 14 EEG connect points that sense brain activity.

"The technology is designed to assist those who are physically disabled who might otherwise be unable to manipulate a computer mouse or keyboard," said Rami Puzis.

The student team, Ori Ossmy, Ofir Tam and Ariel Rozen, developed the prototype application for their bachelor`s degree project under the supervision BGU Prof Mark Last, Rami Puzis, Prof Yuval Lovitz and Lior Rokah.

As part of a recent demonstration, a student composed and sent a hands-free e-mail using only thought combined with the adaptive hardware.
