Mind-Controlled Skateboard Runs on a Windows 8 Tablet
By Joshua Schnell
The guys at Chaotic Moon Labs decided that using a Kinect-controlled skateboard just isn’t bleeding edge enough. Instead, the company built a mind-reading skateboard that takes commands directly from your brain.
Using a Windows 8 based tablet from Samsung and a neuroheadset, the 800-watt electric skateboard takes commands from the brain while the rider visualizes their trajectory across the landscape. The headset not only controls the riders direction, but it can also control speed, just in case you have an “oh crap, I’m going too fast” moment as you careen down Lombard Street in San Francisco.
