Speaking of neuro-based gadgets, the Tokyo-based company, Neurowear, is working on a device called the Neurocam which can apparently read your brainwaves to determine what your interests are, although we’re not sure what they plan to do with that information after. Perhaps recommend songs, apps, or books? Or worse yet, targeted advertising! This will be accomplished through a headset called the MindWave Mobile and together with the Neurocam and its accompanying software, will be able to scan your brainwaves to gauge your interest as you look at the world around you.

For example if you were to look at something that interests you, your brainwaves would spike and the software will assign a value between 0 to 100 depending on the intensity of the spike, with the Neurocam capturing a five-second video at the same time. Like we said we’re not sure what the point of this is and what are the possible functions for such a device, but it is a pretty cool idea nonetheless and if you have a couple of minutes to spare, you can check out the concept video above to see the Neurocam in action. What do you guys think? Is this something Google should introduce to Google Glass?
