Recently, however, BrainBit’s EEG headbands, a non-invasive BCI that monitors brain activity using alpha, beta, delta, and theta waves, was put to use in the realm of theatre. Throughout the performance, a neuroscientist would interpret the results of the scans performed by the headbands, which were then incorporated into the show.
As the article at the link suggests, this adds an entirely new dimension to the production, which is “part performance, part game show, part story time, and part psychology lesson.” Through the inclusion of BCI technology, both those participating in the show and those watching it can gain new insights into the inner workings of the mind during various scenarios.
So give the article at the link a read to learn more!
And don’t forget to check out the EMPATHY series, which explores the use of BCI technology in a number of different avenues in both science and the arts through its diverse array of perspective characters.
