Justin Angel, Principal Engineer for Windows Phone experience at Nokia, has released a new Bluetooth SDK for Windows Phone 8 that enables developers to take advantage of connectivity with MindWave portable EEG headsets. Said devices can pair with a Windows Phone to display readings in both data and chart form for users to look through.
Taking advantage of the possibilities in Microsoft's latest version of Windows Phone, Angel is able to provide a demo to show just what's possible for developers with platform development. Creativity really is the limit. Titled MetroEEG, Angel's kit will connect with a Mindwave Mobile Mini-EEG reader to display readings from the wearer's brain.
As one can see in the above video demonstration, attention and meditation gauges are also viewable, providing an interesting way for a Windows Phone to be utilised. The open source project is available over at CodeDuplex.
