In EP51 we interviewed Afshin Mehin who is the founder of Card79 about brain-machine interfaces and the future of multi-modal interaction design. He and his team recently had the chance to work on the Neuralink robot and beyond that experimented in many internal projects on the future of thought-based interfaces. During the episode we jump into: how to BCI (brain-machine-interfaces) work what value do these interfaces provide how do interactions with such interfaces work and why multi-modality is key the evolution and future of interaction design how to navigate the value of design in the fields of advanced technologies, science, and research challenges when designing though-based interfaces Thanks a lot for your time and learning Afshin!
