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.
