Greetings from OpenBCI!
Happy May everyone! As it is now officially Spring, we hope you start going outside to measure your brainwaves! This month we have been focusing heavily on improving the OpenBCI experience. We have been working with BioEra to provide Ganglion compatibility with their software. We have also finished a beta version of the WiFi Shield and it has been sent out to a small batch of beta testers. Read more below!In this month’s Newsletter:

1. Normal Shipping Resumed
As you might know, we were in the process of changing fulfillment centers. This process took us a bit longer than expected, but we have now resumed normal shipping! So now it is a great time to head to the OpenBCI Store and get some of our gear!
We apologize for any orders that had any problems due to the mistakes of our previous fulfillment center (specially international orders). We are now working to ensure that all of our customers get their tech. If you have any questions about a missing or delayed order please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number.
2. BioEra & Ganglion
We are excited to announce that the OpenBCI Ganglion now has driver support in BioEra! Thanks to the great work by Jarek Foltynski for making this happen! Now you can connect the Ganglion to your computer and create visualizations, games, audio experiences, and more with the intuitive and easy to use BioEra design interface. There are hundreds of design elements, or Objects, to build with and share. Here is a shot of the BioEra Ganglion Example Design to build upon.
3. WiFi Shield Update
We are super excited to announce our partnership with Push The World
to create a WiFi Shield for the OpenBCI Cyton and Ganglion boards! The goal of this project is to add WiFi connectivity, control, and data transmission. With the increased bandwidth of WiFi, we will be able to sample at higher rates, and increase the maximum OpenBCI electrode count from 16 to 24
! We now have a beta version and we have shipped a samples to a select group of community members to test them out and provide feedback! We are hoping to release the WiFi Shield for sale later this year. You can read more about it here
