Life Ink

Life Ink by the Ars Electronica Futurelab in collaboration with Wacom explores the inner mechanism of creativity in our brain and body. The joint research team developed wearable gear that captures brainwaves and body signals in real time to create a new form of ink, called Life Ink. Can the human mind and body become the pen that generates ink that expresses our creativity? The signals are visualized as a constant stream of 3-dimensional immersive ink that expresses our emotions and creative moments in a completely new form – lending color to our thoughts and feelings with our creative sparks.
