OpenBCI Video

Reading Cyton Data from Files

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 location of the file as it was being generated and later parsed the data into rows and columns. I’m calling this “semi-real time” because this isn’t as direct as it could be, and presents some timing problems. I would later abandon this in favor of using OSC and other options.
