On Feb 12th on Queen Street the Dragon Ritual Drummers will be returning home to where they first originated, Niagara Falls. The group performs unlike any ordinary band at a restaurant or pub, it is a more festival suited interactive display, that will be playing on Friday at the 4555 Cafe & Wine Bar. Although they originated in Niagara Falls, the group has never played here before; but with the downtown’s developing art scheme, it seemed like the right time to return. The group’s inspiration by a mythical ideal of a mystical dragon’s spirit residing within the Falls and their albums telling stories of the serpent. Scoring at the top on MySpace music charts all over North America for particular Afrobeat and Topical. The Dragon Ritual Drummers will be performing two days before valentines, and within this interactive performance, a King and Queen will be chosen from the audience, as this group expresses the spirituality of this festival through music and art.

Brain Wave! Mind Control the Falls

Toronto tech company InteraXon were thinking up new ways to expose their mind-controlling technology to everyone. One of their ideas was to make a brainwave sensor that feeds off brainwaves to create music, or a heat lamp.

The Ontario government rebutted that idea and suggested this new innovation that would spark tourism.

Visitors at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver will be able to visit The Ontario House and sit in one of these chairs. Thought controlled computing takes the waves off your head, then classifies them into alpha, beta, theta, etc. The machine teaches you how to use these waves to control your thoughts. Once you are ready, you can go live and control the lighting of the Niagara Falls, CN Tower, or Parliament Building, just by the power of your brain.
