Created at School of Design, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in a collaboration with Californian technology company, Neurosky, MINDHALO is a headset that utilizes brainwave reading technology to glow according to its wearers mental level of focus. The project was tutored by Roger Ball and Yan Luximon.
Developed from the archetypical idea of a pure white halo spiced only with a distinct color referring to that of our life giving blood, MINDHALO stresses the importance of mental dedication by visualizing its wearers state of focus through light and space in real time.
Suggesting only abstract contexts, it encourages users to be curious and inquisitive in the quest of finding ways to utilize what is not merely a consumer product, but rather a physical extension of the human mind. With no other limits than what individual creativity applies, the opportunities are endless. Where will you use it?
