The Wave UFO

Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Misc. Tech

Wave UFOMariko Mori’s Wave UFO combines real-time computer graphics and brainwave sensory technology to produce and audio/visual show like no other. Three viewers enter the contraption and are fitted with electrodes to monitor their brain waves. The data gathered is used to produce a one of a kind show:

This information is transformed into visual imagery and projected onto the screen: six undulating bio-amorphous cells represent the left and right lobes of each of the participants’ brains, and a waving line moves in correspondence with blinks and other facial movements. The forms change shape and color in response to three types of brainwaves. Alpha (blue) waves indicate wakeful relaxation, Beta (pink) waves indicate alertness or agitation, and Theta (yellow) waves indicate a dreamlike state. Two cells coming together demonstrate “coherence” between the two lobes of the brain. Mental functions such as thinking in other languages or doing math problems immediately transform the characteristics of the graphics.
