The Pangolin Scales

1.024 Mini Brain Sensors to Control a Fashionable Dress

The Pangolin Scales demonstrates the world’s first 1.024 channel brain-computer interface (BCI), which is able to extract information from the human brain with an unprecedented resolution to control an interactive, fashionable dress. This information is used to control the Pangolin Dress interactively, and was shown live on a model during the Ars Electronica Festival. The Pangolin Scales is realized by a cooperation between researchers from the Institute for Integrated Circuits at JKU, the brain-computer interface experts from g.tec medical engineering GmbH and high-tech fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht.
