Current low-cast consumer neurofeedback technology, such as the MindWave EEG/EOG sensor, headset, and hardware/software technology developed by NeuroSky, will expand our awareness and skills in using and training of our own minds and brain states. Combined with the explosive growth of personal mobile smart phones, the Apple iPad, and other wireless networked tablets and virtual worlds/augmented reality technologies (e.g.,VitaEdu), a new kind of global Virtual Museum of the Future can be created—all co-designed, created, and curated by individuals and teams of students as a way of learning to better use their individual mind states in the service of imagining futures and future careers. The collaborative creation of an emerging "Mindseum” will also be supported by a global open source "knowledge garden” and subsequent other "exhibit pavilions” of a global Virtual Museum of the Future. This panel, including high school and college students (some participating virtually from overseas), will explore early efforts to create the Mindseum.


Participants will leave with an understanding of:

  • New kinds of low-cost neurofeedback, sensor, and integrated technologies
  • A vision of a new kind of global virtual museum of the future, starting with a Mindseum of exhibits, experiments, and ways students can start to do research and create virtual exhibits (including those with content/external devices directly connected to and influenced by their own mind-states)
