MindRider and the Maker’s Brain

MindRider is a brain-reading bike helmet developed at the MIT Media Lab that converts a cyclist’s EEG levels into an LED display. It also geo-locates the EEG data so that cyclists can review their “Experience Maps” later. For Maker Faire, Catherine Cramer and Stephen Uzzo of the NY Hall of Science will place MindRiders on various Makers throughout the Faire to study the “Maker’s Brain.” We’ll show and discuss our findings during the presentation.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
