Anatole Lécuyer's "Mind Mirror" shows Video of his Brain Activity

Mind Mirror is  the result of collaboration between IRISA (Institute for Research in Computer Science and Random Systems) and INSA in Rennes (France). This combination of a EEG helmet, a 3D camera and a semi-reflective digital display is the first device to combine augmented reality and electroencephalography (EEG) in real time.

Result: you see you brain activity in the mirror in real time. Scientists call that "Neurofeedback".
