More on BCI, waiting for OpenBCI

Continuing to experiment with the NeuroSky Mindwave. Using Mindwave OSC on a Nexus S (Thanks Carrie!) which communicates with my iMac over OSC. PureData grabs the OSC stream and presents the data in my pd patch. Getting some interesting results -- the biggest problem is that the data stream seems quite erratic, which makes it difficult to correlate my thoughts with the results. 

Missed the Kickstarter for the OpenBCI interface, but looking forward to trying it out. All of the interface software is open source, which should make it easier to experiment with the different brain wave types. As a bonus, the Open BCI interface is capable of processing EKG (heart) and EMG (muscle) sensors.
