Love it, indeed
Really good solution

When seen through the lens of technology, few resources are truly scarce; they’re mainly inaccessible.

OpenBCI opens up low cost brain-wave-controlled experimentation to everyone

RATE THIS! +5
Posted in Science on 13th Dec, 2013 01:54 AM by AlexMuller

New York EEG researchers and Parsons instructors Joel Murphy & Conor Russomanno just launched a Kickstarter called OpenBCI, intended to give anyone low-cost computer access to their EEG (brain waves).

 
BCI stands for brain-computer interface. The idea with OpenBCI is to allow you to control (with your mind, via an eight-channel EEG interface, your computer, and your controller) devices such as lights, robots, optocopters, your exoskeleton … whatever, using an affordable Arduino board controller that can be easily programmed. Muscle (EMG) and heart-signal (ECG) pickup is also planned.
 
The Kickstarter funding will allow Murphy and Russomanno to build the open-source-platform devices to make this possible. It will also allow some of you to be the first to receive an 8-channel OpenBCI EEG signal capture system (Bluetooth-enabled, Arduino-Compatible, with an on-board SD card holder) — limited supply*.
 
The Kickstarter:

It would be great to see this funded. It can help efforts in brain–computer interface technology and its goal of helping disabled people communicate with the outside world using brain signals Reply

This already very active field in science and technology and there is a a large body of research reported in the EEG-based brain–computer interface research field during recent years. It would be good to open this further Reply
