Legal Theft / Intelligent device

Legal Theft
Legal Theft

Almost everyone can't stay away from their mobile phones these days. They are addicted to apps thinking they are having free fun. But things are not so simple. The world has entered the Age of Attention Economy. Getting more attention means getting more money. The nature of the media is to capture our attention, but we don't realize it and we even enjoy it. Using EEG neurofeedback technology, I tried to use a set of devices to detect and display the user's attention state when using various applications, so as to show the process of attention being stolen by the Internet, so that the users can understand their true role in online activities.
