Yummy Technology: Cool Headset Lets Drinkers Fill Beer Glass With Their Thoughts

written by Jeannette Musembi 13th July 2013



The longer you can mentally focus on something cold, the more of the beverage you will receive

You can use your mind for all sorts of useful things, from problem solving, to positive thinking. But now you can use it for something a lot more tangible – pouring a perfect draught beer.

Could you ever imagine your thoughts delivering you an extra cold beer by only thinking of it? Castle Lite have made it possible by introducing the world’s first digital Mind Reader, allowing users to showcase our mental prowess, whilst receiving an Extra Cold Castle Lite draught at the end as a reward.This brain-powered technology was created for Castle Lite – a low-carb, ice-cold beer offering from South African Breweries.

Using only your mind, The Extra Cold Mind Reader challenges you to keep your mind cool, even when presented with images of extreme heat and other distractions. The unique sensory experience also makes use of interactive lighting, cold air effects, rich immersive visuals and sound to really challenge the user.

The longer you are able to keep your mind focused on something cold, the more ice cold beer you are rewarded with.

Designed by Hellocomputer, and built by Thingking, the mind reader uses an EEG headset to measure spontaneous brain activity over a short period of time along the scalp. The device also picks up on conscious thought, emotion and facial expressions, all of which it uses to control the experience.

So, if you thought you were good at pouring a glass of draught beer, it might be time to take on a new challenge in the form of a mentally materialising beverage.

Watch the video below to see this extraordinary invention in action!

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that
they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the
whole thing without having side-effects ,
people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

You really make it appear really easy along with your
presentation however I to find this matter to be actually one
thing which I believe I’d never understand. It seems too complex
and very large for me. I’m looking ahead in your next
post, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!
