Build and use the world's first €20 brain-smartphone interface to enter text on your phone by thinking (well, we're getting there...)! This project drops the cost of brain-computer interfaces by using your smartphone, tin foil and a bathing cap in the hope of doing what Google Cardboard did for VR. We will explain the theory (steady-state visually evoked potential) behind the text entry app.

The neural signals come out an audio cable, so you can work with them on any device you want: phone, tablet, laptop.

We have space for 25 participants. You can sign up in advance on the sheet in the Belgian Embassy/Hardware Hacking Area.

Caveat: neural signals are faint; you are likely to leave this workshop perplexed, wondering if you are even reading a reliable signal.

iOS users should register on Testflight in advance by e-mailing hello[at]abetterwaytodo[dot]com with an e-mail address, a first and last name.
