The covers are coming off! The Brainwriter (an extension of Not Impossible's Eyewriter) made for graffiti artist TemptOne launches at the Barbican museum in London next week.

Here's the information about the project that will appear on site:

Inspiring people to change their world for the better, Not Impossible is committed to the idea of technology for the sake of humanity.

Consisting of a hacked PS3 camera, copper wire and a pair of cheap sunglasses the EyeWriter enabled LA graffiti artist TemptOne to begin to draw again, despite suffering the neuro-degenerative condition known as ALS. While the Eyewriter was activated and de-activated using eye-blink recognition, the degeneration of Tempt’s ability to fast-blink necessitated that the technology progress to activation and de-activation using brainwaves.

From Blink To Think.

The BrainWriter is an EEG headset that can read thoughts and track eye movements, and consists currently of a headband, Olimex sensors, shielding board, OpenBCI board (EEG device) and an eye-tracking device (any of SYMEye, Tobii, EyeTribe as available).
