Abstract

Brainwaves represent a person's state of mind, thought processes, attention and meditation levels. Currently there are numerous inexpensive BCI (Brain Computer Interface) devices available on the market. However the "real time" and "visual" representation of the brainwaves of a specific person/audience, as an "hologram" to another "augmented reality" headset user, represents a major breakthrough and limitless domain specific use case scenarios. Our invention utilizes an inexpensive Brain-Computer-Interface, through which the alpha, beta, delta, theta and gamma brainwaves of an individual are measured. These waves are analyzed and certain thought patterns (and state of mind measures) are calculated (either readily available or via further processing) and presented to another augmented reality headset user (e.g. HoloLens) as holographic augmented reality indicators spatially located around the BCI connected user's mixed reality image in 3D. So the augmented reality headset user may visually witness in real-time, what the other party (or the audience if there are multiple BCI users) is thinking/feeling. Such an interface is extremely useful in Education Scenarios within which the educator may monitor visually and in real-time the attention, focus, motivation or concentration levels of the learners. It may identify cases of ADD/ADHD or mild forms of autism as well as help identify different learning styles or dormant talented individuals among the audience. Such an interface may also be useful for focus group studies (marketing and/or advertising), UX studies, gaming user telemetry, group activity monitoring (military drills/exercises), simulations, as well as medicine. In hypothetical scenarios within which there are multiple augmented reality users (who also utilize a brain computer interface at the same time) this may even present new means/mediums of augmented communication patterns as these individuals will mutually be witnessing the thought patterns of the other parties in real-time.

Currently there are numerous inexpensive BCI (Brain Computer Interface) devices available on the market. However the "real time" and "visual" representation of the brainwaves of a specific person/audience, as an "hologram” to another "augmented reality" headset user, represents a major breakthrough and limitless domain specific use case scenarios.
