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.

Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
