BI1brainterface & Brainwave Starter Kit bundle

Soundmachines BI1brainterface is an exploration and performance tool for musician, producers, actors, body performers and coreographers who wants to connect their mental and emotional sphere directly with the performance.

We wanted to create something that doesn’t require the use of a computer, and brings immediacy and easy of operation in this upcoming technology.
By stressing the capabilities of the Neurosky MindWave Mobile headset, the BI1brainterface is developed to connect your mental status to your gear, in the most easy and open way possible.
Whenever you have an analog modular synthesizer or a MIDI sound generator, you can influence on sounds, sequences, timbres and drive the performance with an added controller, the most sophisticated: you.
Attention and Meditation are the most ‘robust’ and repeatable variables that you can count on. But also the EEG power spectrum bands (Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Theta) are available to control other eight sound/light/video characteristics. As a bonus, we put in your toolbox a variable threshold to generate a ‘trigger’ based on your facial muscular activities (i.e. blinking or grin).
In the studio or in a live environment, weared by a dancer or an actor on stage, or just use it to relax yourself and raise your self-consciousness about focus, relax and meditation.
Bio feedback is another field of operation for the BI1brainterface, reaching applications such as the several described above and more.

Brainwave Headset


Brainwave Starter Kit takes decades of laboratory EEG technology research and puts it in your hands. Simply slip on the headset and see your brainwaves change in real time. Monitor your levels of attention and relaxation, and learn about how your brain responds to your favorite music. With more than 100 brain training games and educational apps available through NeuroSky’s store, there are plenty of options to choose from based on your age and personal interests. It’s an excellent introduction to the world of brain-computer interface!

The MindWave Mobile safely measures and outputs the EEG power spectrums (alpha waves, beta waves, etc), NeuroSky eSense meters (attention and meditation) and eye blinks. The device consists of a headset, an ear-clip, and a sensor arm. The headset’s reference and ground electrodes are on the ear clip and the EEG electrode is on the sensor arm, resting on the forehead above the eye (FP1 position). It uses a single AAA battery with 8 hours of battery life.

The MindWave Mobile headset transfers data via Bluetooth™ to wirelessly communicate with your computer and mobile devices (iOS and Android). You can also write your own programs to interact with MindWave Mobile by using NeurSky’s free developer tools.
