BR41N.IO Hackathon – The Brain-Computer Interface Designers Hackathon

The BR41N.IO Hackathon brings together programmers, engineers, designers, artists and/or enthusiasts, who collaborate intensively as an interdisciplinary team. Each team must design and build a unique, playful and wearable headpiece that can measure useful EEG signals in real-time to create any sort of interaction. The hacking projects use EEG electrodes and amplifiers, and challenge programmers to code an interface that enables them to control devices, robots or applications, post messages on social media, make paintings, or enact a myriad of other applications only with their thoughts. BR41N.IO also challenges creative minds to design a BCI headset with 3D printers, handcrafted materials and sewing machines.

BR41N.IO Hackathon – The Brain-Computer Interface Designers Hackathon

A BCI provides a direct link between the brain and an external device. Twenty years ago, BCIs could only spell or move computer cursors. Today, they are being used in many different fields of neuroscience, such as motor rehabilitation for stroke patients, assessment and communication with comatose patients, device control for disabled people, cognitive training and neuromarketing. Machine learning, dry electrodes, wireless electrode caps and other technologies are making BCIs more powerful and practical for a growing number of users.
The BR41N.IO Brain-Computer Interface Designers Hackathon Series has been created to show these current and future developments, and the unlimited possibilities of BCIs in creative and scientific fields, bringing together programmers, engineers, designers and artists. Each team must design and build a wearable BCI-headpiece that can measure brain activity in real-time to create any sort of interaction. The hacking projects use EEG electrodes and amplifiers, and challenge programmers to code an interface that enables them to control devices, robots or applications, post messages on social media, make paintings, or enact a myriad other applications only with their thoughts. BR41N.IO also challenges creative minds to design a BCI headset with 3D printers, handcrafted materials and sewing machines.
BR41N.IO aims to promote awareness of artificial intelligence, life science, art and technology, and how these can merge into innovative and exceptional BCI systems.
