"This is your brain on bike," said Arlene Ducao, a computer programmer and digital animator at the MIT Media Lab's Information Ecology group showing off a map of city streets studded with colorful dots. Ducao is the inventors of MindRider, the bike helmet that reads its riders' brainwaves (hacked with an EEG sensor that displays the wearer's stress levels). The helmet also correlates the bikers' mental state with their geographical routes, creating maps of what Ducao calls the city's "psychogeography."
