Live from Digital Directions 2011 – Tan Le from Emotiv (@TanTTLe) #DD11

The final session of the day was from Australian-born entrepreneur Tan Le, president of the brain interface control device maker Emotiv. Tan Demonstrated the EPOC, a device that reads brain waves and interprets them in such a way that thought can be used to drive actions, such as moving a virtual object on a screen.

“There are so many possible applications of this new form of interface,” Le says. “You can imaging a character being naturally and intuitively controlled by your facial expressions. Or to move objects with your mind. Or you emotional experience can be used to dynamically change the game environment.”

Both Tan Le and Robert Tercek are quoted extensively in the new book, A Faster Future.
