Future of Entertainment: ThinkEar

Controlling devices with our minds is no longer solely science fiction. Neste’s ThinkEar headphones are a bold entertainment concept that offers thought-controlled personal audio.


ThinkEar is a headphone-based entertainment system that offers the least intrusive levels of interaction imaginable. Constantly connected to a cloud brimming with all the audio content you could ever want, the headphones are all you need; there’s no external device or companion apps required.

Its most unique feature? ThinkEar’s UI is controlled by your brainwaves. You simply formulate a command and the integrated EEG reader interprets them. This is a radical extension of the functions of previous headphones. It can even translate languages and give you directions around an unfamiliar neighbourhood.

ThinkEar will be built using Neste bioplastic that has a less than zero emission rate – the plastic made from waste and residue can actually absorb carbon dioxide out of the air.

This is the future of personalized audio – and you’ve got to hear it to believe it.
