Help Shape The Future of OpenBCIFill Out Our Survey!
WHO WE ARE
We are a community of researchers, engineers, artists, scientists, designers, makers, and more. The one thing we all have in common? We share an unfaltering passion for harnessing the electrical signals of the human brain and body to further understand and expand who we are. As our community continues to grow, so does the range of possibilities of what we can discover and create. What can we build together?
WHAT WE DO
OpenBCI stands for open-source brain-computer interface (BCI). The OpenBCI Board is a versatile and affordable bio-sensing microcontroller that can be used to sample electrical brain activity (EEG), muscle activity (EMG), heart rate (EKG), and more. It is compatible with almost any type of electrode and is supported by an ever-growing, open-source framework of signal processing applications. Check out our Github repos to learn more about the OpenBCI SDK, firmware, and various ongoing projects. Check out our Docs page for getting started material and other tutorials.
WHY WE DO IT
As humans, the biggest challenges we face in understanding what makes us who we are and the greatest advancements we'll make while deciding what we become, will not be solved by a single company, an institution, or even an entire field of science. These discoveries will only—and should only—be made through an open forum of shared knowledge and concerted effort, by people from a variety of backgrounds. We work to harness the power of the open source movement to accelerate ethical innovation of human-computer interface technologies.
