A smartphone powered EEG scanner with a 3D brain-activity modelling app could make life a lot easier for people with neurological problems.
The device and application can be used with any commercially available headset, the one in this video is the Emotiv EPOC. Other headsets currently available are the NeuroSky Mindwave and Mindset headsets and the PLX headset. The PLX X-Wave headset is specifically for the iphone/ apple products and was developed using NeuroSky hardware.
