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.

Simulation and learning with Brain-Computer Interfaces and Gesture Based Computing

I came across this slideshow presentation a while back, it was created by some very smart people at the Current Technologies Corporation. For those of you who want more in-depth information about BCI’s, Gesture based and related technologies, their stage of development and timeline on the Gartner Hype cycle, this presentation is really insightful.
