Hacking My Vagina : scanlime Hacking My Vagina Posted by Micah on Saturday, November 24, 2012 · Leave a Comment This project has been an astonishing little journey. Many of my previous projects were characterized by an amazing outpouring of effort to build something highly intricate and ultimately invisible. This is the opposite kind of project. In other words, I wanted to hack something I actually use: my vagina. I love feedback loops. To me, a good sex toy helps form feedback loops. I was in the market for a remote-controlled vibrator recently, and I ended up with LELO’s Lyla vibe: (Update: LELO was nice enough to send me their updated model, the Lyla 2, which also works with this remote. There are some things I really like about this toy. The optional accelerometer input on the remote was a good idea, but I feel like the execution leaves much to be desired. So, naturally, I wanted to see if I could do better. But I was rummaging through my sensor drawer, and thought: Why not sonar? So, what does it look like?

Un casque, des capteurs et un smartphone pour diagnostiquer les maladies neurologiques ! Parce qu'il est long et fastidieux de diagnostiquer des maladies cérébrales telles que les commotions, une startup lance le "MindReader", un casque qui permet de connaître l'activité du cerveau en temps réel. Pour détecter une commotion cérébrale, les outils classiques se révèlent parfois contraignants et combinent une multitude de tests longs à réaliser tels que l'IRM (imagerie par résonance magnétique), des tests de la mémoire ou de concentration. Parfois, le temps fait défaut aux spécialistes de la santé. Des tests neurologiques réalisés dans des conditions réelles Baptisé "MindReader", ce casque est muni de capteurs qui enregistrent l'activité du cerveau. Un système qui a ses limites Le "MindReader" peut aussi être utile à l'industrie pharmaceutique en aidant les professionnels à surveiller le système nerveux du patient et à évaluer le meilleur traitement pour ce dernier.

Brainstorms Your Mind Creates: Binaural Beats: An Infographic Guide to Brainwave Entrainment Imagine if you could get into a deep state of focused consciousness any time you want.What if I told you that this is possible? Here's your answer: get yourself some stereo headphones and listen to Binaural Beats. Binaural beats and brainwave entrainment are amazingly powerful tools for altering your state of mind.This is seriously useful whether you want to reach a deep meditative state of mind, achieve peak concentration whilst studying or immerse yourself in vivid creative visualization. Binaural beats can also help you raise your vibrational frequency. So, what are binaural beats? Binaural beats are one of the more popular types of brainwave entrainment. Here's an example of how binaural beats work: Let's say you have a base frequency of 400 Hz playing in stereo. Here's an infographic to please your eyes: What do binaural beats sound like? Here is a sample of a pure Alpha wave: This is an example of what a pure Alpha wave of 12 Hz sounds like at 5228 Hz. Frequently asked questions

Emotiv Epoc PrevNext Multimedias – Interactivity – Science – Art Fin 2010, j’ai reçu une subvention de conception de la Communauté française de Belgique pour mon projet Anathèse, une performance/installation interactive utilisant un casque neuronal Emotiv EPOC. Cela faisait 5 ans que je suivais le projet de cet hardware, j’avais fait quelques tests rapides à plusieurs reprises, mais je n’avais encore jamais eu l’occasion de le tester réellement. Après avoir reçu le casque, j’ai pris contact avec Axel Cleeremans du Consciousness, Cognition & Computation Group de l’Université Libre de Bruxelles et ai débuté une série de tests avec le Numediart Insti­tute for New Media Art Tech­nol­ogy de l’Université de Mons. Outre ces premiers tests sur l’hard/software, nous avons travaillé à l’élaboration d’algorithmes qui me permettraient d’utiliser certains “états émotionnels” pour piloter mon installation. Présentation rapide au travers de deux vidéos. Conférence TED de juillet 2010 Top

RadioShack presents 18 More Awesome Projects To make all of these Instructables, download this collection of How To’s as an ebook. Download » When RadioShack announced last year that it was starting to stock Arduinos we knew just what to do: we went shopping. It's one of our favorite tools to use and we were up for any excuse to use more of them. The cool thing about Arduino is that it lets you do so many different things that it's really about what the user can think of. And we thought of so many things to do. So please dig into all these projects of ours and find out what the Arduino is capable of. Des chercheurs allemands conduisent une voiture par la pensée Ils n’ont pas encore atteint le niveau du professeur Xavier, mais les chercheurs d’AutoNOMOS Labs en Allemagne ont développé un système qui conduit un véhicule en lisant les ondes cérébrales d’une personne. Voici donc à quoi ressemblera notre futur. Les chercheurs avaient précédemment construit des voitures qui pouvaient être contrôlées depuis un iPhone. Le système est encore loin d’aller sur une vraie route, comme le montre la vidéo. Quelles sont les applications ?

First trial with EPOC headset device. « BH Digital Media Production// I was very excited to test the EPOC headset and to see what it is capable of. Firstly, I took it out of the box and read through the manual. Before I could start the headset had to be charged and sensors prepared by hydrating them in a special saline solution. I charged the headset with a special usb cable provided. The sensors came packed in a plastic case which is suitable for soaking. After preparing the headset I have to fit it correctly on someone’s head. In order to establish the connection between the headset and the computer I used a supplied USB Transceiver Dongle and placed it into one of the USB slots. In this image I can see that all sensors apart from one are green. I noticed that EPOC must be in field of USB dongle. To test this head device i used two software tools: 1. Here is a small video preview of Mind Your OSC software responding to the headset in use: Here is a video showing how actual facial expressions are being translated onto a 3D model.
