George Redhawk creating looping GIFs

This artist creates beautiful looping GIFs even though he’s legally blind

According to The Creators Project, George lost his sight suddenly, which left his life and career in shambles. In a bid to take in all the beauty in the world that he could while he was still able to see, George created these breathtaking images.

George has Charles Bonnet syndrome which causes those who have lost a lot of their vision to have “visual hallucinations” and see things that aren’t really there says

His work is called The World Through My Eyes as he feels the morphing still motion is a rather apt way of conveying his view of the world. And isn’t that what art is all about after all?

Have a look at these. They will blow your mind.

Brainwave Machine to Help Disabled Gain Mobility

Researchers have developed a machine that could read the minds of the disabled & transform their lives.

SEOUL – South Korean researchers have developed a machine that could read the minds of the disabled and transform their lives.

When used in combination with an exoskeleton that enables movement, the brainwave interface measures EEG signals and decodes them into motion control orders.

Professor Lee Seong-whan and his team at Korea University are behind the development. “The exoskeleton robot reads the brainwaves of the user and removes unnecessary external noise through the signal processing system. Then, the robot picks out and classifies the certain characteristics of the brainwaves. In this way, the exoskeleton robot is controlled by matching the classified brainwaves to the designated orders.”

To do that, a visual stimulus generator is used to read the brainwaves.

The device has five LEDs that represent different commands – turn left or right, walk forward, stand up, and sit down.

Each of these commands has a different frequency, so the corresponding LED light flickers when a signal is sent.

“When a user focuses on visual stimuli, the same frequency is generated in the occipital lobe of the user’s brain. So, we can detect the user’s intentions by reading his or her frequency.”

The control system collects the signals with the EEG cap through a wireless transmitter-receiver and converts them into system instructions to operate the exoskeleton.

While the system is focused on helping the disabled become more mobile, because it understands the user’s intention clearly, the scientists anticipate that in the future, the technology will be applied to other devices, including self-driving cars and self-navigating drones. (Accessed 22092015)
