Electroencephalogram

May 9, 2007 by glennji

In light of Danielle’s recent EEG, it’s interesting (and a little scary!) to hear that games may one day soon incorporate the same sensor technology to provide a new dimension to our gaming.

Interesting, and not too surprising: the equipment is getting cheaper all the time. It’s the right time for the OpenEEG project then, which aims to provide opensource hardware designs and software for building EEGs – for experimentation, mental training and research. Who wouldn’t want to understand their own brain, mind and moods a little better? (Okay, probably lots of people, but I’m not one of them!)

I like that one of the first examples of a neurofeedback toy is a Darth Vader mask and light-saber which you have to concentrate to keep activated. Very geek.

After too many years, I’m finally building myself a NAS: network-attached storage, a device for backing up files, photos, and all the data that is otherwise in the cloud. Say goodbye, FANGs, I’m going self-hosted.
