Brainwave Sofa Carved Straight From Your Thoughts

Lucas Maassen and Dries Verbruggen had a crazy idea. Not only did they have a crazy idea, but they acted on that very oddity. And that’s how you get things done, no matter how nutso the concept might seem.

This proof-of-concept Brainwave Sofa device takes raw EEG data and creates a piece of furniture based on your very thoughts.

The extracted EEG data was used to create a 3D landscape with the x-axis representing the frequency of brainwave activity in hertz, the y-axis is the percentage of activity, and the z- axis is time. The sofa was then created in its physical form by a five axis computer numerical controlled machine, which creates a three dimensional object out of foam.
