This week on WDD's HotSpot:

  • Neurowear has adapted its brainwave-reading technology to create Micro Headphones for a project called Zen Tunes.
  • The newly EU-funded Mindwalker project is routing brain signals directly to a robotic exoskeleton in the hope of giving patients suffering from paralysis the ability to walk again.
  • Qualcomm is putting wireless charging platforms through real-world tests to prove the technology with a fleet of 50 vehicles in London.
  • Leap, from Leap Motion, allows people to use their natural hand movements to control games, complete office tasks, paint, create 3D objects, and edit music and video, while sitting just a few inches from the screens of laptops and personal computers.
