I think some of you might be interested in the event I just suggested. The details are below. We've got some cool toys to be taken advantage of and a smart and diverse group of hackers/builders coming together. I hope to see some of you there.

Event Summary:

Next Saturday (Feb. 16th),The Brain Interface Lab is hosting an all-day event titled Hack-A-Brain. The event is a dev jam focused on the creation of novel applications of low-cost brain interfaces. We were able to procure a variety of commercial EEG devices for the event, including headsets from Neurosky and Emotiv.

Goals of the event:

- bring together people from a wide range of disciplines that are interested in brain-computer interfacing
- conceptualize, design, prototype, and build tools/applications that explore future implications of interfacing the brain
- document and publish all work with the intention of driving forward the DIY brain-interfacing community
- initiate an ongoing discussion around the future of brain interfaces, spawning future similar events
