The work collects mechanomyographic signals from the muscle vibrations of dancers using a small condenser microphone and transforms them into sound and visuals for the audience. Sensor design[…]
An Interactive, Mind-Controlled Game of Pong Brain Bats uses wireless electroencephalographic headsets to control the output of an Arduino microcontroller. Data from the headsets is processed and visualized on the computer using customized Python code. That data is then used to power the Brain Bats game, which lights LEDs on a custom-built board through a sketch running in the[…]
Polytechnic Institute of New York University Lecture and demonstration of the use of an electroencephalography cap for training a computer interface to respond to brainwaves using biosignal analysis. I got to put electrode goo in my hair and test out both a P300-spelling program that used neural responses to identify letters and a motor imagery[…]
