I’ve just posted that old program to read data from KT88-1016 amplifier here:
– look for file named eegRead.zip
It’s written in C++ and should complie without problems with Borland C++ Builder 6.0 – which can be downloaded from torrent.
Also, I threw there a OpenViBe driver sketch – kt88-1016-openvibe.zip – to use Contec KT88 with OpenViBe BCI software. Disclaimer: It has only basic functionality and some features like configuration still has to be done.
(A signal shown here was taken while twisting electrodes in hands. This is not EEG =)
As a geek I’ve always dreamed of a day when my computer will really become extension of my mind – all boundaries like the need to use mouse, keyboard and other awkward interfaces to explain my idea to machine will be gone. When mind will fuse with technology, and obtain all if its computing power, logic accuracy, incredible amounts of memory… and many other good things we could only dream of.
Fortunately, advances in technology in last years show we’re quickly moving in this direction. If you watch news you know today it’s possible to control machines using only your mind. It’s done by using brain-computer interfaces.
Surely it’s more interesting to try brain-computer interfacing yourself then just to watch it in news. But here comes the roadblock: you need special hardware – an EEG device – to make the connection, and it’s not cheap. When I googled for EEG hardware, I found unfortunately prices start from 3000$ and go up to tens of thousands of bucks :(((
