Thought Helm / Thought Helm

Thought Helm
Thought Helm

1. Thought Helm detects brain waves with event-related potential (ERP) sensing technology that is non-invasive. It takes brain activities and activates heat-sensing displays on surface. When the rational left brain is more active, the helmet displays modern location names with modern fonts. On the other hand, when the sensible, artistic right brain is more active, the helmet displays past location names.
2. For obvious reasons, the helmet will be exposed to sunlight when used. Thus, by transforming sunlight with solar panels to power the ERP and heat-sensing display, Thought Helm is also environment friendly.
