Open BCI is an open source Brain Computer Interface project. Back in 2014, I supported one of their early Kickstarter programs and got one of the 8-bit EEG boards.
After some rather discouraging initial results, and a long time away from the project, I have found some folks interested in the same applications of the technology and we’re setting some goals for development.
Some recent progress is shown in the YouTube playlist below:

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 values are arranged as follows: […]
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, I pointed Touchdesigner to the […]
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 difference between the at rest […]
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 issue (later fixed by adjusting […]
