Wearing a neuro-headset, Thinker Thing’s George Laskowsky has done the unimaginable. He has thought an object into existence. From the sound of it, this is something that just can’t happen. It is a power reserved not for man, but for the gods. And yet this little orange robotic-looking arm was created by the power of a human brain.
Well, that and a whole lot of software — and a 3D printer. So the object in question didn’t just wink into existence when Laskowsky thought of it. Unless, that is, you look at the event in the right light.
Here’s how the whole thing works: First you strap on the EPOC headset, built by Emotiv. Then the Thinker Thing program starts, showing you a display of a very basic shape. Next, as you watch, the object begins to mutate and evolve. (via Dreaming up reality: 3D printed objects created by your mind | DVICE)
