Alpha power battles with toy helicopters

About this project What is more exciting than a brain-controlled helicopter battle against two people? We only need two brains, one OpenBCI board, one Arduino board, two digital potentiometers, and two toy helicopters. Are you ready for this? Components and Supplies Get the hardware We need to indispensable things to “hack” the helicopter tottle: Two…

A toy helicopter throttle controlled by alpha waves

About this project What is more fascinating than a brain-controlled helicopter that can be flown using nothing more than your brainwaves? When wearing your OpenBCI headset, you’ll be able to control a toy helicopter through focused concentration or by closing your eyes. Components and Supplies Get the hardware We need four essential things to “hack” the helicopter…

Two External Buttons on OpenBCI 32bit Board

Sometimes, when studying EEG or other biopotential signals, you will want to have precise timing between external events or stimulus and the data stream. For example, motor imagery based brain-computer interface (BCI) translates the subject’s motor intention into a control signal through real-time detection of characteristic EEG spatial distributions corresponding to motor imagination of different…

Loading OpenBCI datasets in EEGLAB

EEGLAB can be used for the analysis and visualization of EEG datasets recorded using OpenBCI hardware and software. EEGLAB can work with a variety of different file types, including those that are exported from the OpenBCI GUI, as we saw in the previous post. The Approach The main goal of this post is to explain…

EEGLAB Tutorial

What is EEGLAB? EEGLAB is an interactive Matlab toolbox for processing continuous and event-related EEG, MEG and other electrophysiological data incorporating independent component analysis (ICA), time/frequency analysis, artifact rejection, event-related statistics, and several useful modes of visualization of the averaged and single-trial data. First developed on Matlab 5.3 under Linux, EEGLAB runs on Matlab v5…
