With this app, football fans can follow the player’s emotions during a match. To achieve this, a wearable EEG scanner, which is able to send data on the player’s brainwaves to a computer in real time, was created. Algorithms were developed to translate the EEG signals into four different states of mind: flow, go, stop and effort. The app visualises each state of mind with a colour corresponding to the mood and an emoji. The app was launched at a derby between the Helsinki teams HIFK and HJK, starring HIFK defender Tommi Vesala, who was wired with the EEG scanner.
