Neuro Turntables at Tokyo Game Show 2012

2012 BLOG

As a collaboration with neurowear, I made a series of “brainwave-driven” music players and exhibited at Tokyo Game Show. Neuro Turntable is a physical record player coupled with a brain sensor, which monitors the brainwave of the music listener. In order to keep listening, the listener need to maintain the concentration on the music being played. We also have iPhone app version, Neuro Turntable Mobile. These are concept models and not intended for sale. We tried to raise a problem of instant / easy music consumption embodied by iPod/iTunes music ecosystem.
