“Augmented Consciousness” is an experimental fusion of virtual reality and neurofeedback, creating an immersive experience at the intersection of technology and the human mind. Drawing inspiration from the mind-body problem, this project invites users to explore different digital environments that react to their neural activity in real-time.
To start this journey, users begin by ensuring their EEG device is properly connected and transmitting a wireless signal to the headset, ensuring a seamless connection between their mind and the virtual world. Real-time EEG data visualization guides them as they explore two different VR environments, each designed to experience their brain activity in a different way.
The stages come in varying difficulty levels and aim for achieving a calm state of mind and focused concentration. In this scenario, users can observe a direct correlation between their mental activity and intensity of the wind flowing over an open grass landscape.
