Joanna Hir & MuArts
Designer Joanna Hir, teamed up with MuArts, a brain-computer-interface company, to create accessories linking braintech with fashion design. Headpiece and earrings use EEG technology, capturing and providing user with the information about brain data, allowing user to be conscious of their mental state in the real time, predict, control and manage brain states. The tech installed on both pieces was programmed to activate with the focus of the mind and change modes of the light, depending on the user’s concentration level. The movement, called enlightenment engineering, aims to enhance human potential and heal some aspects of human psyche with the help of wearable technology, for example: reduce anxiety, depression or increase focus or relaxation. Moreover, it allows the user to control all the tech on the body and in the space around them with the focus of their mind.
