Flappy Brain

Alex Eames from Raspi.TV has done my job for me today: here’s a video interview with Albert “Winkleink” Hickey from this month’s Cambridge Raspberry Jam, and a demo of his simply outrageous Flappy Brain game, which is controlled using nothing but your brain. (And an EEG monitor, an Arduino and a Pi.)

Albert says he plans to write up kit and code soon; we’ll be keeping an eye on his website for that, and will add a link here when it’s done. Here it is! Thanks both! (I’m now going to experiment with refraining from blinking when I concentrate.)

/me now has visions of Liz using brain power for cracking into the RPi that controls Eben’s Diddyborg robot he now uses to get anywhere in RPi Towers, in order to limit the damage her hubby is doing to the office furniture ;-P

HAT, coat -> door ;-)

It is as if you have a camera in our office.

Better resolution needed – upgrade that headgear using the latest syringe-injectable electronics. http://www.nature.com/nnano/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nnano.2015.115.html It’s not entirely clear what happened to the mice…

Isn’t it how the borg’s got started in the first place.

Brilliant. That’s my school summer holiday sorted, soldering together 30 of these setups together so that everyone in my IT classes can prove to me their ability to concentrate on a task. Maybe I could paint the barriers with my lesson objectives and get in some subliminal learning too :-) Excellent project Albert and thanks for getting the video ‘out there’ Alex and Liz.

Looks like mind control is where it’s at.
