World's first helmet-shaped brain scanner

The world’s first brain scanner that can be worn as people move around has been invented, by a team who hope the contraption can help children with neurological and mental disorders and reveal how the brain handles social situations.

The new scalp caps – made on 3D printers – fit closely to the head, so can record the electromagnetic field produced by electrical currents between brain cells in much finer detail than previously.

This design means the scanner can work in ways never possible before: subjects can move about, for example, and even play games with the equipment on, while medics can use it on groups such as babies, children and those with illnesses which cause them to move involuntarily.

So happy to see this. Such a logical development of the technology :). Such a boon for diagnosing babies and children.
