EEG Options for Brain Control Interface Projects

eeg-1

Neurosky MindFlex – This falls in the category of toy based EEGs. It is frequently used with Arduino projects due to it’s price point ($40 – $80) and extensive support in the forms of an Arduino Brain Library and Processing Brain Grapher. The setup is easy just link the the tx/rx and include the brain library for Arduino. The MindFlex uses four electrodes.

OpenBCI – Research grade EEG put together by an ad-hoc community. OpenBCI is a powerful Arduino compatible open source hardware design. Prices range from $350 – $1,100 depending on how much you can print and assemble yourself. The current OpenBCI headset uses 10 gold electrodes.

 

There is some potential for the Muse and Emotiv brands of EEG headbands to be used for DIY brain control interfaces. These headbands are in the $250 – $800 range. Muse has some (1) (2) github Arduino oriented projects.  There is an unmaintained python library for Emotiv that was reverse engineered to work with a Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black.

 


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. You forgot about BITalino 😉

  2. hey there.

    no commercial intended (since the newest version is not really availabe yet), however have you heard about the brqin-duino project?

    cheers
