Adding bluetooth to an EEG headset for mind-controlled projects

An instructables on adding bluetooth to an EEG headset for mind-controlled projects by AndreLe: I had serial bluetooth module HC-06 lying around and decided to see if I could integrate the two and skip the Arduino altogether. Turns out, it works almost as good as the commercially available NeuroSky MyndWave for a quarter of the […]

Arduino Neurosky brain wave (EEG) library

Users of the Neurosky EEG brainwave sensor devices will be glad to learn that there’s an Arduino library for reading data. “Brain is an Arduino Library for parsing data from Neurosky-based EEG headsets. Tested units include the Star Wars Force Trainer and Mattel MindFlex. It’s designed to make it simple to send out an ASCII […]

Notacon 10 – DIY Neuroscience, EMGs, EEGs, and other recordings

In this presentation from the recent Notacon 10 conference in Cleveland, OH, Karin Halsey (aka meecie) provides a thought provoking roundup of the tech basics behind medical sensors and related devices. The talk focuses on working with basic supplies and DIY kits to measure biometric information.

Brainwave music maker

Brainwave measurement tools are increasingly being included in hacker projects. In this video, Collin from Make Magazine reveals his progress in producing brainwave-based music. He uses the a NeuroSky MindSet device for measuring EEG activity, which transmits its data via Bluetooth to the Mac. The MindSet Beat Sequencer code for Processing runs on the Mac. […]

Brain wave monitor with Arduino + Processing

Frontier Nerds have been experimenting with brain wave tech as part of their Mental Block project. In this well documented project they take the headset from Mattel’s Mind Flex game and hack it to communicate with an Arduino board to measure brain waves and display their levels graphically on a PC via Processing. They chose […]
