Brain Bats

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 Arduino programming environment.

Brain Bats is a collaborative project that originated at Hack Manhattan and was funded through a Kickstarter campaign. It has been featured at the Figment FestivalCome Out and Play After Dark, and Maker Faire 2012.
