EEG headband and mobile app duo that tracks and helps you improve your focus in relation to your activity, your environment, your emotions, and any other behaviour you want to track. It also exercised your brain by training you to move objects with your thoughts which in the future may be connected to robotic action.
This was an exciting project working with a team of scientists, hardware engineers and app designers from america, china, india, russia and britain.
The EEG Headband was successfully crowdfunded by 2,723 backers, the project raised $290,941
and was acquired by Augmented Reality company in 2015.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 4.0
Nordic Semiconductor nRF52 chipset
EEG data collection and processing
Signal amplification, which makes raw brainwave signals stronger.
Filtering protocols that eliminate known noise frequencies such as muscle movements and pulse.
Notch filters that eliminate electrical noise from the grid, which varies from 50Hz to 60Hz,
depending on geographic location
‘AR has already started making its impact at work, shifted to the road, and will continue to carry out into all aspects of life, allowing people to adapt to changes in technology as quickly as computers, redefining what is humanly possible.’ Brian Mullins CEO Daqri.com
EEG was invented by german psychiatrist Hans Berger, who committed most of his life to discovering how telepathy works. At the age of 19 he fell from his horse into the path of a horse-drawn cannon and felt he would surely die. The driver of the artillery battery halted in time, leaving the young Berger shaken but with no serious injuries. His sister, at home many kilometres away, had a feeling he was in danger and insisted that their father telegram him. This made such an impression on Berger that, he spent the rest of his life researching the subject.
