Brain Like Thinking Computers – The End of Moore’s Law

How: Brain-like, or neuromorphic, computers –  Neurogrid, one of the first truly neuromorphic computers.

For five decades, Moore’s law held up pretty well: Roughly every two years, the number of transistors one could fit on a chip doubled, all while costs steadily declined. Today, however, transistors and other electronic components are so small they’re beginning to bump up against fundamental physical limits on their size. Moore’s law has reached its end, and it’s going to take something different to meet the need for computing that is ever faster, cheaper and more efficient.

Brain Bats: Mind-Controlled Pong

Check out this brilliant video by Brain Bats: Learning to play Pong with your mind. It’s another great innovation using the NeuroSky MindWave and an Arduino LOL shield.

The game was developed on a LOL shield, a charlieplexed LED matrix for the Arduino, before the display was ramped up to what you see in the video. The LEDs are individually addressable, so you can use it to display anything in a 9×14 grid. Scroll text, play games, display images, or anything else you want to do.

Does it actually work? 3 Neuroscientists test the Mindflex

I’ve come across a fair bit of scepticism about NeuroSky, it’s associated products and whether or not they actually work as intended.

The video below is a review of the Mindflex by 3 neuroscientists, from their preliminary testing they seem impressed by the device and try several different methods to trick the Mindflex into working without any success. I think the video below is pretty good proof that the Mindflex toy and it’s neuroheadset does provide neurofeedback using EEG. Continue reading
