A gadget to control Google Glass with thoughts

 Focus hard and you will be able to control Google Glass with your thoughts alone. Yes, your power of thoughts can give the computer eye wear commands to do certain things, like taking a picture and even posting it to Facebook. 

Developed by London-based startup This Place, the open source MindRDR app and Neurosky EEG biosensor work together to transmit users' thoughts to Google Glass. 

The wearable sensor and the app analyze users' brainwaves and gauge their level of focus. Concentrate hard until a horizontal white line starts to rise on Google Glass "screen."

When the level crosses a certain threshold, MindRDR tells Google Glass to take a picture. Stay focussed and Glass will post the photo on social media. 

"It's pretty cool when you have taken a picture and shared it, just by thinking," said Chloe Kirton, creative director of This Place. 

The technology could also be used to help those with severe physical disabilities such as locked-in syndrome or severe multiple sclerosis. 

The new app is yet to be approved by Google Glass team, reports added.
