I don't remeber if I've talked about the EEG project on here yet, but It's something I'm working on with Muller. Our goal is to construct an electroencephalogram (EEG) machine for less than $200 and use it to monitor brain activity. The EEG machine would then be hooked up to some sort of control system so that a remote controlled car, computer, or other device could be operated using only your mind.

We're following the specifications detailed in the OpenEEG project. We already have some of the components, and I just mailed an order to a company in Bulgaria, who are the only people that print the neccessary circuit boards. Once we get the bare boards, it'll be a simple matter of ordering the additional components (from domestic companies) and soldering them on. The tricky part is hooking the EEG machine up as a controller and training ourselves to use it properly.

Robert's ultimate goal is to be able to play hands-free Counter-strike. That would be insanely cool, but It's a long way off. Once the boards have arrived (and Robert comes back from Japan), we should be able to really get started. I'll keep ya'll posted.
