OpenBCI Research Highlight

We want to give a shout-out toBioSENSE at UC Berkeley for their work with the Cyton 8-channel Biosensing Board!

Why this group is getting the OpenBCI highlight?

For their work on usable, discreet brain-computer interfaces, we want to highlight BioSENSE Berkeley’s project, a brain-based authentication system using custom-fit, EEG earbuds. This group built a strong case for the use of biometrics as a one-step, three-factor authentication in consumer devices. Read about their methodology HERE.

BioSense’s rationale for choosing OpenBCI was “for its flexibility: despite the broad availability of low-cost EEG sensors, no [other] commercially-available sensor allowed us to build our own recording configuration with a custom number, and configuration, of electrodes.”
