Mind Controlled Interfaces

Sunday, March 13
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 8ABC
531 E 4th St

What does the future of digital interaction look like? How can we move beyond prodding, poking and clicking?

The first steps have already been made - we can now take and share photos, and control TV content with our minds... this is only the beginning!

We’ll explore what these future interfaces might look like. It’s not people being controlled by computers - it is using our thoughts to directly interface with digital devices; creating intuitive interactions based on activity in the brain. We will discuss the challenges we have faced in defining this future and the successes that have already gone on in the field.
