OpenBCI GUI · v5.0.5
Here you can download the standalone OpenBCI Graphical User Interface (GUI) for your operating system. It is the easiest and fastest way to connect to your OpenBCI hardware, visualize physiological data, and stream it to other applications and tools.
If it’s your first time working with OpenBCI and you own the Cyton or Cyton+Daisy, make sure to install the latest FTDI driver
for your operating system. Download the FTDI package for your computer by scrolling down to the operating system chart on the FTDI Drivers page. This installation is required to establish a connection with the OpenBCI Cyton and Cyton+Daisy hardware.
If you want to work with older versions of the OpenBCI GUI, head to our Github Repository to see all previous releases
of the OpenBCI GUI.
Mac OS X Catalina users and System Administrators: Please allow the GUI to access the web to check for updates and allow access to users' Documents folder.
Here are the latest versions of the OpenBCI hardware code (also known as “firmware”). A version of this code is already uploaded to your OpenBCI Board. However, you can easily upload modified code to your OpenBCI Board. Feel free to dig in, adjust settings, and optimize the firmware for your specific bio-hacking needs!
