this week’s assignment was to make a sensor wearable. last week i was working with the zeo to read brain wave activity via the serial port to processing. i’ve made some progress translating the raw data from it’s particular ASCII serial protocol format into something that’s human readable (much thanks to tom igoe on this one). . . . → Read More: [cyborg]
began hacking into a zeo (a consumer product used to detect brain wave activity while sleeping). the user wears a special headband that senses electrical signals naturally produced by the brain which it wirelessly transmit to a zeo clock/module. the clock contains an SD card that stores encrypted data on your brain wave activity. users can then . . . → Read More: [reading brain waves & quantifying happiness]
