Greetings OpenBCI community! We’re excited to update you on our hard work! This month, every board in our store (Cyton, Daisy, Ganglion, and Wifi Shield) has a software update, bug fix, or updated tutorial! Scroll down to section three for links to the new releases!
Recently, OpenBCI has been seeing a surge of media and academic exposure, concurrent with novel and innovative applications of our open-source EEG/ECG/EMG systems. We post up-to-the-minute OpenBCI developments to our Twitter. Check it out now!

1. The Today Show Segment
In a collaboration with Mount Sinai Health, Putrino Lab, and SafeForRobots, the Ultracortex Mark IV Headset was used to show the effects of walking and texting on your brain. Jeff Rosen, The Today Show host, volunteered as a demo subject! The electrodes on the headset sense Jeff’s brainwaves and the Cyton Board on the back of his head transmits them, via bluetooth, to our GUI visualizer shown below. The red shows areas of activation in live time!
2. OpenBCI is Sponsoring BCI Meeting!
We’re psyched to announce that we’re GOLD SPONSORS for the Seventh International BCI Meeting: “BCIs: Not Getting Lost in Translation” on May 21-25th, 2018!
The 2018 BCI Meeting will take place on the scenic oceanside grounds of Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California, USA. The BCI Meeting brings together scientists, engineers, and clinicians involved in BCI research and clinical use, review the present state of the field, address key issues critical to further progress, and promote the education and participation of young researchers. This meeting and the resulting comprehensive publications should, like its predecessors, contribute greatly to BCI research and development. We’d love to see you there!
