Control your iPhone with your mind

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2010

If only you could command your iPhone with your thoughts? Maybe you can after all. That’s the idea behind the XWave, a headset that turns your brain’s electrical activity into signals that can control your phone.

Details are scarce, but it is basically an interpreter, a middle man if you will, that allows your head and your iPhone to communicate. The XWave has a pad that rests on your forehead, picking up the tiny electrical signals that change along with your changing thoughts. The headset comes bundled with some apps that let you control your music library etc, and PLX is seeking out developers to create new apps for the headset as well.

PLX Kiwi criticizes your driving, saves gas
Finding new ways to cut down on your gas bill isn’t easy. Sure, you can keep the tires inflated and not have extra weight in your trunk, but there’s got to be more that you can do, right? Just get the PLX Kiwi. It keeps an eye on your driving habits and lets you know what you need to alter to increase your gas mileage. That’s right, it becomes a nagging backseat driver telling you everything that you are doing wrong. In that way, it’s kinda like picking up your mother-in-law from the airport.

The Kiwi will examine smoothness, drag, acceleration and deceleration. Then it gives you a full report. According to the company it will give you an average fuel savings of 20% which could save you anywhere from $500-$1000 per year. You can get it later this month for $299. But what if it tells you there’s not a damn thing you can do to get better mileage? Some of these vehicles are doing about all they can do.
