Google Glass-type device

 Using Google Glass, a team of researchers is developing a ‘smart’ portable system that will use functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to measure a person’s brain activity on the go. The applications for fNIRS are endless — from training air traffic controllers and drone operators to studying how students with disabilities learn best or why different people are more receptive to certain commercials. “This is a new trend called neuroergonomics. It’s the study of the brain at work — cognitive neuroscience plus human factors,” said Hasan Ayaz, associate research professor at Drexel University.
