Ever wanted to be able to use EEG Data in your projects? If you are a maker, developer or tinkerer you might be interested in this new device called the OpenBCI.
OpenBCI has been created to provide users with a versatile and affordable Arduino-compatible, 8-channel EEG platform that gives you access to high-quality, raw EEG data and has been designed by Joel Murphy & Conor Russomanno. Check out the video after the jump to see the inventors of OpenBCI take your throughout the devices features and possibilities.
“OpenBCI is a low-cost, programmable, open-source EEG platform that gives anybody with a computer access to their brainwaves. Our vision is to realize the potential of the open-source movement to accelerate innovation in brain science through collaborative hardware and software development. Behind the many lines of code and circuit diagrams, OpenBCI has a growing community of scientists, engineers, designers, makers, and a whole bunch of other people who are interested in furthering our understanding of the brain.
We feel that the biggest challenges in understanding what makes us who we are cannot be solved by a company, an institution, or even an entire field of science. Rather, we believe these discoveries will be made through an open forum of shared knowledge and concerted effort by people from many different disciplines.
The OpenBCI project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think OpenBCI is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help OpenBCI become a reality.
“By donating to this Kickstarter you will be supporting our efforts to make the existing OpenBCI hardware ready for mass production and available to the general public. In addition, you will be joining the OpenBCI community where people of all ages, locations, and backgrounds can contribute to unlocking the mysteries of the human brain.”
