Calling all engineers. Not sure if you caught the announcement that Google Ventures, Google's VC arm, formed an "investmetn syndicate" with Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers the trio calls Glass Collective. The group will provide seed funding to entrepreneurs to help jumpstart their ideas for Google Glass projects.

brainwaves on the shop floor?

This a good technology for disabled people who can drive the gadgets around them with their thoughts.

On a shop floor or an assembly line , I see more confusion could be created if the machines were controlled by the brain waves because a normal human being does not have much control over his thought process . While a person may outwardly seem working with concentration his mind may be wandering and thinking about his last weekend or the evening date or something else. This is sure to confuse those obedient machines.

SP, I think we're still a ways off from reading the brainwaves of the person in front of us, but to have the capability to move something on a computer screen or a mechanical arm in a distribution center creates really interesting possibilities for a more efficient supply chain. Maybe some of the really smart engineers reading EBNOnline.com would provide some insight into the possibilities. If not for the supply chain, what are some of the possibilities in general?

Rich, if you were to design a feature in a distribution center using Interaxon's headband that can read brainwaves, what would it look like and what would it do?
