This mind-reading camera only records what you're interested in

Neurocam will ruin relationships and bring about the end of civilisation as we know it

Thinking of taking a picture?

Faffing around with your smartphone's lock screen is a pain when you want to take a photo, but the Neurocam will make taking a snap as easy as thinking about it.

The prototype headset combines a brainwave scanner with an iPhone dock. Using a brainwave quantifying algorithm developed by Keio University, it'll judge whether you're interested in what you're looking at on a scale of 1-100; if you score over 60, it'll record a five-second GIF on your iPhone.

Are you thinking what we're thinking?

The downside? Whatever you're looking at, as well as your interest level, is prominently displayed on the iPhone that you're wearing on your head.

That means that anyone can see exactly what you're interested in, like some sort of mind-reader. And as we all know, that's the first step towards the collapse of civilisation and the rise of some future dystopia straight out of Black Mirror. Look at the woman in the video above, she's become fascinated with the back end of a dog. This can only end in tears.

So, call us when you make a Google Glass version, Neurocam.
