Projects

An easy project for one person might be difficult for someone else. Therefore we have broken down the projects as to either requiring no programming experience (plug and play) or requiring some experience. You will notice that with certain EEG headsets that there is more tutorials than others. This is likely due to the ease of development when using that device. The best way to get started will also depend on the headset that you have available.

Muse


Muse is an EEG device which has developed as a meditation device. You can learn about its features here.

No Programming Experience

  • If you are not comfortable with EEGs or coding, we suggest taking a look at their Getting Started Guide. It includes a link to their Visualizer software
  • This guide uses OpenVibe which is a dataflow programming system and is used for Brain Computer Interfaces. One of the NeuroTechX Community Members built a P300 Speller using OpenBCI and OpenVibe
