This video, courtesy of David Pisarek, was taken at My Virtual Dream installation at Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, Toronto 2013. My Virtual Dream is powered by The Virtual Brain, a cutting-edge piece of software developed by Baycrest. As a computerized replica of the human brain, The Virtual Brain is designed to interpret incoming brain activity. MVD brings this powerful technology to a new audience on a huge scale, allowing participants to experience The Virtual Brain in a fun, interactive environment.
Participants will create a dream using Brain Computer Interface technology — special headsets designed to read their brain activity and relay it to The Virtual Brain. This activity is interpreted and translated into amazing animations and sounds, projected out to the audience in real-time.
