First Ever Physical Object Created With The Mind

3D printers allow us to print any object, theoretically making any home can have the object that comes to mind. However, you first have to create a digital model of the part you want to print, using complex software, then the printer can interpret.  Thinker Thing seeking anyone to create real objects without prior experience in 3D software. For that, they created a system that “reads your mind” to create three-dimensional model, without the user having to get involved with complicated programs.

In principle, the Thinker Thing system is designed so that children imagine monsters that can then print as toys . Today, the company announced that it managed to print the first object using your system.

“Although the first object created by George (Lakowsky, CTO of the company) was very simple, is a breakthrough of epic proportions in our project. George was able to control an evolutionary process that gives rise to a 3D object using small detectable electrical impulses in the brain. This evolutionary model is created so that it can be read by the new 3D printers, which allow us to create real, physical objects managed by your mind, “said Bryan Salt, founder of Thinker Thing.

How it Works

The invention works by presenting the user with a “DNA base” that the person has to “evolve” with the thought, with the help of software that is presenting alternatives. What you are and what you are is determined by the user’s emotional response, measured using a Epoc Headband  to read the user’s brain reaction.

“We can determine the characteristics of evoked responses based DNA, and use that in a natural selection process that refines the next generation of objects. Thus, in a short period of time, the user grows a model using his mind “explains Salt.

The invention and development of the system was funded by the Start-Up Chile program, but the Thing Thinker plan is to bring this system to schools for children regions of Chile to print their own monsters, using their minds. To begin with, they are working with students from fourth grade at a school in Vicuña, Coquimbo Region, who are helping to develop the system.

“Now instead of reading on technology developed elsewhere in the world, these children are directly involved in a project advanced here in your own city,” says Salt.

The idea is to get a large number of schools and then make a presentation to the freaks come out of the minds of children. To achieve this, the group is raising funds on Indiegogo .
