This is an extended example of a single channel of BCI data sent to Touchdesigner via OSC. The main difference here is that I am breaking out each of the five band power values and mapping them each to something different. After I made this video, I confirmed that the ...

Read Cyton Data into Touchdesigner From Static File

These videos recap some of my earlier proof of concept attempts for getting data into Touchdesigner using file output capability of the OpenBCI GUI. In the first case, I first generated a file using the OpenBCI GUI, then later pulled the data into Touchdesigner (non-real time). In the second attempt, ...

Continuation of previous experiments with getting BCI data into Touchdesigner. ...

This is a rudimentary demo of an OpenBCI signal (in this case, FFT of channel 5) mapped to an audio generator (Sine wave generator). As I move my arm the frequency tends to go up, though there is not any fine control at this point. But there is a clear ...

This video shows OpenBCI Cyton live data input to Touchdesigner via OSC protocol. The good thing here is that data is finally coming in live, rather than from a saved CSV file. On the downside, this method is still reliant on the OpenBCI GUI and I also had an index ...

By now you’ve probably experienced a meeting where there are both Google Meet and Zoom links. Here’s why it happens, and how to avoid it. Stop the madness! ...

The NS 2021 Summer Showcase is a premiere of the virtual collaborative works created by the residents. Program Notes for “Ocean” ...

By the end of May and early June, I still had some drift wood, lots of rocks, and substrate materials left over from my first round of builds. My springtail culture was also going strong, and the isopod culture I started in April was doing well too. During a flea ...
