2. Cyton Boards & New Products!
With this new year we also decided to get new names for our 32Bit Board and Daisy. The 32Bit Board will now be named Cyton Board! According to the Segen’s Medical Dictionary, Cyton refers to the a neuron’s body, exclusive of the processes—axons, axon terminals, and dendrites departing therefrom. Because the cyton is basically where the information received by the dendrites arrives, and the board is where the information received by the electrodes is processes, we thought it would be a great name!
3. Community Member of the Month
The thing we love most about OpenBCI is our amazingly diverse and inspiring community of hackers, neuroscientists, makers, and more! To celebrate you we have decided to feature one or two community projects here and in all future newsletters. If you are interested in being featured or know someone who has a cool OpenBCI project, please fill out this interest form
This month we want to share Thinker, built by AJ from Push The World!
AJ, a current member of the OpenBCI team, has created his own headset using one of our custom boards. He has attached the board along with eight electrodes to a normal cap to sense changes in the user’s motor cortex. His software, Thinker, allows the user to build personal profiles of EEG data and train a system to real-time motor imagery control. Even with the Ultracortex Mark IV’s dry/passive electrodes! We think it works great. Why do you give it a shot and provide him with some feedback? Check out his most recent community post detailing the project development.
To learn more about his software check out his website www.pushtheworldllc.com. To test his software with your own headset send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or signup at http://www.pushtheworldllc.com/thinker.
