Update #3

Balls!

Comment

With FIGMENT less than 60 hours away, we have been very busy testing the new headsets from NeuroSky, cutting ping pong balls, repairing electronics, ordering last minute parts, painting the board and wiring the lights together. 192 holes had to be drilled and the wiring will be kept together with almost 1,500 solder joints. Here are a few photos from the last couple of days.

If you are in the New York area this weekend, don’t forget to attend FIGMENT and play Brain Pong with us! The event is open Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm. It’s a short ferry ride from Manhattan and Brooklyn.

    In addition to postcard, stickers, 3D souvenir, and tee shirt, you’ll get a piece of Brain Pong history: a custom designed LED module containing the same 1.75 watt LED that we are using in the FIGMENT installation. It has 3 modes: always-on, fast blink, and slow blink. It's programmable, if you're into that sort of thing. Blind your foes! Attract potential mates! Compete with fireflies! Practice Morse code!

    In addition to postcard, stickers, 3D souvenir, tee shirt, and LED module, we will scan your head and 3D-print a scale-model plastic bust of you. Great conversation piece on your mantel, or you can wear it on a gold chain and launch your music career as MC Twoface. We’ll need you to be in NYC so we can put you into our head-scanning machine, though.

    Choose your own adventure. In addition to postcard, stickers, 3D souvenir, tee shirt, and LED module, we’ll create a custom mind controlled game for you based on your idea. The game will use the MindWave, an Arduino, and a LoL Shield. If you already have an idea, feel free to ask if it’s feasible. Note that we believe in sharing: the code for the game will be made public.
