EEG - Brain Computer Interface

Have you ever wanted to be able to just use your mind to control de computer? Me too!

I'm working on a project to perform a cheap and easy to build platform (ideally, arduino compatible) that expands your computer interface into a new, mental level.

During my work I've created a blog in order to let people know how the work is going. I will now like to expand my context and share with instructables-fans and obtain some feedback from you guys.

Notice the system is still open and unfinished, so don't go nuts if it doesn't work, yet.


I hope you enjoy :)

    Question 3 months ago

    I have created a similar kind of ciruit but i am having trouble connecting the electrodes properly to my skull. I am using a bandana directly to hold the electrode in place but i have only got the circuit working that way once so far. I have also created an elastic band but i dont get any signal out of it. I dont know why this happening.Also im using these electrodes. And im trying to capture alpha and beta waves so i connecting the electrodes at fp2 and o2 position.Can you give any advice on how to connect them properly? Should i be using insulation tape? And how tightly they should be held against the skull? Just touch the skull or hold it very tightly that i get rashes ?? Thanks
    Please check the images to see how the electrodes look and how i have wrapped the bandana and stuck another electrode in there

    What's the progress on this? I'm so interested in this same project. I have a lot of plans for the work your doing on this so I'd hate to hear you stopped.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing a step-by-step instructable of the finished device.
