EEG and the Quantified Self
From Cyborg Anthropology
One might see some interesting results if they were to plug an EEG hat into a cell phone.
Things that could be tracked:
- Moods vs location vs time.
- Moods vs location vs heartrate vs time vs sleep cycle.
- Aaron Parecki notes that the OCZ OCZMSNIA Neural Impulse Actuator might be able to be hacked to do this. It has been traditionally used as a neural interface for gaming.
The sensors installed in the headband allow one's brain wave signal to be converted into control signals. OCZ turned the previous RS-232 serial port connection into the more common USB interface, and uses DirectX API for multi-threaded importation of commands.
- @jtbandes notes that the Geoloqi API does have a space for things such as heart rate and brain waves.
