3D Printing and 3D Scanning Technology To Zap Your Brain

What a shocker

Are you ready for a shocker? No, I don’t mean just some socking news. I mean, are you ready to get buzzed with a bolt of electricity? Maybe you aren’t but there are some people out there who are asking for a zap. They are willfully trapping themselves to the electric chair and flipping the switch. Actually, it’s more like an electric had. It’s not because they did anything wrong. These self-afflicting head shockers are trying to make the most out of their brains. In my opinion, it is probably one of the strangest uses of 3D printing and 3D scanning services technology. 

Get quicker with 3D printing and 3D scanning services

So here is the buzz on this crazy electric device. This is a 3D printed headset that straps on to your noggin. The purpose of it shock your brain so that it stays constantly alert. The point is to help people like gamers who need to make quick decisions and avoid mistakes. Gaming competition has become super intense. This device should show just how intense it has become. Remaining in a level of high of concentration is the key. This is why people are going to such extremes as shocking their own brains. Right now this idea is still in the cradle. The startup company who want to get it going is called HUMM. They made it by 3D printing and 3D scanning services. Time will tell if it turns out to be a productive idea.

What are people saying about it?

What people are saying about this things seems to vary. Some people are a bit over-reactionary. They themselves go into electric shock when they hear the words electric shock. They immediately think of their kids getting their brains fried like a fork in the toaster. There is no way that this device is putting out that much electricity to the brain. Other people are all for it. Some see it as a step to help people in other ways. One idea was that this technology could be used to help people stay away in dangerous situations. Imagine driving down the road at night felling a little sleepy. That is a dangerous situation. An electric signal could be sent to the brain to revive alertness if that state of mind was detectible by computer. Sounds like a life saving idea to me. There is definitely a potential for this idea beyond just the gaming industry. Maybe students could even use it to keep themselves away when preparing for an exam. It would probably have a lesser damaging affect than caffeine pills.

Love it or hate it, this device is coming. I guess that is because the game must go on. I personally think that it should be filed under the pile of FAIL ideas. There are better ways to use 3D printing and 3D scanning services. If it is simply to get a better score on a video game, then I say “relax”. Who am I to say such things? Apparently Google and Amazon are looking into this technology.
