1. Our Brand New WiFi Shield!
The OpenBCI WiFi Shield is a plug and play accessory board for the Cyton and Ganglion devices. The WiFi Shield is the first open-source device that connects bio-sensors directly to the internet, allowing you to easily bypass latency filled serial ports and low range bluetooth connections. Further, the wifi shield enables you to stream faster and farther than the default bluetooth-based dongle. On most wireless networks, the WiFi Shield can stream well over 1000Hz with the Cyton and Daisy boards and at 1600Hz with the Ganglion board—over 10x faster data rates relative to traditional bluetooth-based EEG devices. A huge thank you to AJ Keller and Push The World for making this product come to life!
