Mind Controlled Car—the premier episode of the new Discovery Channel series “Prototype This!”—used BIOPAC equipment to measure a driver’s heart rate and GSR as indicators of mental state as part of a feedback system that turns the car off when a driver reaches “road rage.”
The series features a team of expert engineers who work each week to come up with one-of-a-kind prototypes of tomorrow for people to experience today.
In the premier episode, the guys adapt an advanced biofeedback system that lets them use mind control to drive a car and monitors the “anger” level of the driver to limit the driver's ability to control the car in a dangerous fashion.
The ETVision (ETV) wearable eye tracking glasses resemble an eyeglasses frame that can be worn by itself or over the participant’s prescription eyeglasses. It contains miniature “eye cameras” that view each eye and a “scene camera” that views the scene in front of the participant, and a microphone. An optional visor can be mounted to […]View All
Discovering and understanding what motivates humans to produce better results has intrigued many researchers. Many researchers have explored the psychophysiological processes that drive our behavior. Here are some recent studies that have used BIOPAC systems to research motivation… Motivation and Pleasure Deficits Undermine the Benefits of Social Affiliation in Psychosis. Blanchard, J. J., Smith, J. […]
