ThinkContacts is an app for the Nokia N900’s Maemo platform, which is able to dial a contact using only the power of thought.
Originally, the idea is to create an app for “Motor disabled person” to enable them to make phone calls to a desired contact by himself/herself by using power of thought, alone. But if it gives good results, it can be made available to masses.
How it works
The app uses a special headset to read users’ brainwaves. These brainwaves provide brain activity giving valuable information which helps in determining determine which of three contacts on the screen the user wants to call.
At this stage, app is at its early stages, and has high probability of achieving high accuracy. As per the official Wiki:
“The user controls the selection of the desired contact by controlling his/her level of meditation and attention. If the user’s level of attention is higher than 70% the software switches to the next contact in the list, if it is lower than 30% the software switches to the previous, otherwise the current contact will not be switched. If the user’s meditation level is higher than 80%, the software makes a phone call to the contact located at the center of the screen.”
