Control your iPhone with your mind

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2010

If only you could command your iPhone with your thoughts? Maybe you can after all. That’s the idea behind the XWave, a headset that turns your brain’s electrical activity into signals that can control your phone.

Details are scarce, but it is basically an interpreter, a middle man if you will, that allows your head and your iPhone to communicate. The XWave has a pad that rests on your forehead, picking up the tiny electrical signals that change along with your changing thoughts. The headset comes bundled with some apps that let you control your music library etc, and PLX is seeking out developers to create new apps for the headset as well.

Kymera Magic Wand is a universal remote for Harry PotterUniversal remotes are nothing new. You can find them everywhere and they’re usually overpriced and boring. Why not leave the clunky oversized remotes to the muggles. Remotes should practice magic, not tech science.

Like a magic wand that will change your channels. Like the Kymera Magic Wand. It can be flicked up or down to change the channel, or turned in a clockwise motion for volume up or down. It features a total of 13 “magical functions” on your TV in all. The wand is battery powered and they even throw in the batteries.

HTC Magic offers Microsoft Exchange supportLooks like the HTC Magic will feature Microsoft Exchange support, which will allow users to synchronize with their Outlook emails, contacts and calendar entries in a hassle-free way. Just make sure you keep your HTC Magic juiced up if you’re relying on a push connection.

This is interesting because there is a lack of native Exchange ActiveSync support on the T-Mobile G1 so far, restricting its use in the corporate world.

Just type in your message or select a piece of clipart, wave your arm in the air and do your thing. It’s available for $1 at the app store.

Android G2: HTC Magic Officially AnnouncedVodafone has just pulled the HTC Magic out of their hat in their MWC 2009 press conference. And yes it is much sexier than T-Mobile’s G1.

Magic Message Mirror home security system

Magic Message Mirror home security systemThe Magic Message Mirror is for those who want to combine their love of Disney with home security. Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the safest one of all? You will be, of course. The portrait in the photo above is actually a home security device.

Just wire it into your existing home security system and it will appear to be an ordinary mirror until it’s triggered by someone walking in front of the beam. That’s when the scary apparition appear just like in the Snow White movie, yelling prerecorded phrases you’ve recorded. The mirror is actually a 30 inch LCD display with a CGI character known as “Basil of the Mirror”. I’m not sure it would scare a thief enough to leave and give up his life of crime. It would probably scare him for a few seconds until he realized what’s going on. Then they would likely steal the mirror, because it’s cool.

VoodooBuddy updates…voodoo

VoodooBuddy updates…voodoo
In this day of digital technology, there are still those who use good old voodoo magic for revenge. The VoodooBuddy exists to upgrade and bring voodoo to the 21st century.

Just enter the information of your most despised rival, then poke away at the doll as often as you like. Users prick the networked voodoo doll with pins, and the output is annoying spam, disturbing email images, and disquieting text messages and phone calls channeled to the victim. But if you go too far in your curses, it will take a photo and send it to the victim instead, in order to reverse the curses and expose you.

Bandai mirai scope: digital fortune teller

Bandai mirai scope
Here’s the latest in electronic oracles, ready to predict your hum-drum future. Unlike, say the magic 8 ball, it uses digital personality assessment, and other strange voodoo to predict your future. The Mirai Scope begins by asking you about fifty personal questions, so that it can sort you into one of 236 personality types. Once it pigeonholes you, your profile is combined with some other crazy nonsense as it tries to zero in on your future course in life.

You can ask it for predictions on topics like health, wealth, and even your love life. One interesting feature is an infrared profile-sharing feature that lets you predict the future for you and your significant other. It sounds like a basic “20 questions”, narrowing down possibilities with your answers. It will cost you $28 in Japan.
