Brain-Computer Interface Technology Smart TV
China-based Haier showcased an interesting mind control technology for TVs - The world’s first Brain-Computer Interface Technology (BCI) Smart TV offers the ability for users to interact with their Smart TV using their brains. The Brain Wave resembles a headset, with an extension placed peculiarly on the user's forehead to control a TV's volume and change channels with thoughts alone. The firm demonstrated its prototype with a game that involves blowing up barrels with your mind.
Unlike a traditional TV, Haier’s Smart TV can interact with viewers via NeuroSky’s MindReader headset. NeuroSky’s brainwave technology can detect human brainwave patterns revealing a person’s mental state. The NeuroSky MindReader then translates the monitored brainwaves into digital signals that the television can recognize. The brain-controlled TV applications allow users to develop control over their concentration and relaxation abilities through entertainment applications. Haier’s Home Cloud Solution provides an exciting ‘Cloud Family’ experience to consumers, a step into cloud service and a milestone in lifestyle change.
Currently it’s a bulky headset but in future let’s hope Brain Wave is miniaturized or possibly integrated into regular 3D glasses.
The Galaxy Note is basically a very large smartphone, though, with a 5.3-inch screen and Android 2.3, aka Gingerbread, which is designed for phones, not tablets. With its new Galaxy Note, Samsung is adding another size category to its already broad range of Android devices.
The company already had more conventionally sized Android smartphones with its Galaxy S line, larger tablets such as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9, and intermediate ones such as the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab and the new Galaxy Tab 7.7.
The GALAXY Note features Samsung’s own 5.3” HD Super AMOLED display providing vivid clarity that is superior to conventional HD displays. The superior screen also offers a 180 degree viewing angle, allowing contents to be shared comfortably. One novelty with the Galaxy Note: it comes with a stylus called the S Pen. At 5.3” the best-in-class display is the largest ever included in a primary mobile device; measuring just 9.65 mm thick. The high resolution display ensures that PowerPoint presentations, web-pages, news apps and e-books can be viewed comfortably with minimal scrolling or zooming. The GALAXY Note features S Memo is a multimedia application designed to record all forms of user-created content. Pictures, voice recordings, typed text, handwritten notes or drawings can all be captured via a single application and converted to a ‘memo’, to be edited, annotated and shared as desired.
