Robotic Flowers which can be controlled with your brain

Neuroflowers changes color and blossoms according to your mental focus. NeuroFlowers uses an EEG headset to read electrical currents from the surface of your head to determine different mental states and make the robotic flowers open its petals and change colors. If you’re in the San Francisco area, we strongly suggest checking out the Market Street Prototyping Festival, an event that brings together artists, designers, makers to help beautify the city. Refer the video of Neuroflowers.

There will be a lot of cool projects on display, including NeuroFlowers, a set of interactive, solar-powered digital flowers that respond to your brain activity. The biofeedback-based art piece uses an EEG headset to read electrical currents from the surface of your head to determine different mental states. It then uses that information to guide the behavior of illumino-kinetic robotic flowers, opening the petals and changing their colors.

NeuroFlowers creator Ashley Newton is a robot fan and studied cognitive science. She says the project was designed to help externalize internal brain states. “NeuroFlowers is an interactive art on science installation that enables people to visualize their mental state through controlling robotic flowers with their mind. NeuroFlowers is [a] pretty tangible example of creating your own reality in that you, either by trying to be very focused or really relaxing your mind and body, are able to make something happen in the physical world.”
She adds, “I do think that the more you’re able to be aware of your mind and control it appropriately, the more effective you’ll be at doing whatever you want and the better you’ll feel.” (Source: Citylab.com)
