Create Your YtDub! KnowEm UserName Check - Thwart Social Media Identity Theft, chec HootSuite-ultimate-Twitter-profile-management-toolbox In early April, Adam Wilson posted a status update on the social networking Web site Twitter -- just by thinking about it. Just 23 characters long, his message, "using EEG to send tweet," demonstrates a natural, manageable way in which "locked-in" patients can couple brain-computer interface technologies with modern communication tools. A University of Wisconsin-Madison biomedical engineering doctoral student, Wilson is among a growing group of researchers worldwide who aim to perfect a communication system for users whose bodies do not work, but whose brains function normally. Among those are people who have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), brain-stem stroke or high spinal cord injury. Some brain-computer interface systems employ an electrode-studded cap wired to a computer. The interface consists, essentially, of a keyboard displayed on a computer screen. Wilson, who used the interface to post the Twitter update, likens it to texting on a cell phone. Schalk agrees.

Interface experiments for a new live report on hypernarrative.co Over the last few years I’ve worked on different live reports for different kind of festivals. I like what you can make with (almost) realtime information based on the API’s of other services. For the Urban Explorers festival in May this year I started working on a new interface. The amount of aggregated information can be overwhelming for people, so I’m looking at how can you keep it understandable for new visitors. Or in the case of Urban Explorers for people who never visited or will never visit the festival. UE is a music and art festival that takes place in different venues in the city of Dordrecht. Blip API The idea is to start working with the Blip API. I haven’t exactly figured out what it should look like, but just started to make some interfaces to see what works and what doesn’t. Last week the Next Web conference was organized in the Netherlands. The Next Hack from Wilbert Baan on Vimeo. Interface Experiment 1 from Wilbert Baan on Vimeo.

twiPICK - real time image search Building Your Teacher-to-Teacher Community! | SimpleTechIntegrat Linktive Brain-Twitter project offers hope to paralyzed patients - CNN.co By Richard Allen Greene CNN (CNN) -- Adam Wilson posted two messages on Twitter on April 15. The first one, "GO BADGERS," might have been sent by any University of Wisconsin-Madison student cheering for the school team. The brain-computer interface allows people to compose a tweet by focusing on the desired letter. His second post, 20 minutes later, was a little more unusual: "SPELLING WITH MY BRAIN." Wilson, a doctoral student in biomedical engineering, was confirming an announcement he had made two weeks earlier -- his lab had developed a way to post messages on Twitter using electrical impulses generated by thought. That's right, no keyboards, just a red cap fitted with electrodes that monitor brain activity, hooked up to a computer flashing letters on a screen. The development could be a lifeline for people with "locked-in syndrome" -- whose brains function normally but who cannot speak or move because of injury or disease.
