By using the Star Wars Force Trainer toy , these guys hacked it along with Arduino to control sound. I think this is actually a great way to make a brain-controlled device of all sorts. Hacked EEG wireless headset produces a pure musical tone when a user concentrates. When not concentrating the user heres a combination of voices – one must find the right tone in their mind among chaos .
As blog’s stats shows a lot of us today are dreaming of a cheap EEG device – most traffic is coming from Google searches “cheap eeg”, “cheapest eeg hardware” and the like =) From cheap EEG devices available, cheapest are those you build yourself. Currently there are various DIY EEG hardware designs & building instructions available on the Internet. Here is a short survey on what we have. Note: for total novices, best place to start with EEG is short intro on How EEG Machine is Made . The most popular ModularEEG
About the project Many people are interested in what is called neurofeedback or EEG biofeedback training, a generic mental training method which makes the trainee consciously aware of the general activity in the brain. This method shows great potential for improving many mental capabilities and exploring consciousness. Other people want to do experiments with brain-computer interfaces or just want to have a look at their brain at work. Unfortunately, commercial EEG devices are generally too expensive to become a hobbyist tool or toy. The OpenEEG project is about making plans and software for do-it-yourself EEG devices available for free (as in GPL).
Alternatives: An alternative to finding electrodes and doing all the amplification DIY-style, it's now possible to purchase a single channel off-the-shelf headset from Neurosky which sends the raw EEG via bluetooth. In addition to potentially being easier to set up and using dry electrodes, this system also ensures user safety by removing the user from any possible shock hazards associated with being attached to wall power. The major drawback is that it has only a single channel, but maybe this will improve in the next version.
