I know what you're thinking...

In the arts centre STUK here in Leuven there's a special installation by artist Christoph De Boeck. You can actually listen to your brain. Here's how it works: the visitor puts on a new technical innovation made by Imec on his head. That device measures brain waves and sends those signals to hammers that hit metal plates on the ceiling.

The reason I tell this in my learning blog is because of what I read at the end of the corresponding newspaper article: Imec lists as a potential use for its device, next to all kinds of medical usage, e-learning. The device can see when you are distracted and at that moment the course may react with an interruption or engaging activity. Fiction? Soon reality?
