PROJECTS

There are several predefined projects at the hackathon, which the participants can choose to work on. Below the projects are described in detail including hard- and software specifications as well as the number of possible participants for each project. Specific hardware for the projects will be provided, however, software should already be installed on your personal laptop before you come to the hackathon.

HACKING PROJECTS
 

BCI on Android Tablet

Use the wireless g.Nautilus EEG system and a mobile Android tablet to record and analyze brain activity in real-time.

soft-/hardware specifications: g.Nautilus, Tablet, Android Studio
participants: 3-5 people per group
skills: Basic programming skills (Java)
requirements: Android Studio, Windows, Linux or Mac

 

Unity Game

It is possible to control a unity based game via BCI. Hackers have to create an interface to control the unity game by using Simulink/intendiX.

soft-/hardware specifications: g.Nautilus, Matlab
participants: 3-5 people per group
skills: Basic programming skills (Matlab, Simulink, Unity, C#)
requirements: Visual Studio, Unity, Windows 7 or 10

 

Connect intendiX w/ Social Media

The g.USBamp amplifier system is used by the P300 based spelling application intendiX. When connected to Twitter or Facebook, participants should write status updates with by developing an interface for using Social Media channels with intendiX.

soft-/hardware specifications: g.MOBIlab, g.USBamp with active EEG electrodes, intendiX, extendiX
participants: 3-5 people per group
skills: basic programming skills (C#)
requirements: Visual Studio, Windows 7 or 10

 

Open ViBE

Create and realize your own BCI project using a g.tec amplifier and OpenViBE.

soft-/hardware specifications: g.Nautilus, g.MOBIlab, g.USBamp
participants: 3-5 people per group
skills: Basic programming skills (Matlab, Simulink, Unity, C#)
requirements: OpenViBE, Windows 7 or 10

 

Dream Painting

For the dream painting app, the user sleeps with an EEG cap. When he wakes up he will get an image created according to his EEG signals. The participants task is to develop an interface based on P300 paradigms using intendiX and a graphic program.

soft-/hardware specifications: g.USBamp, active EEG electrodes, intendiX
participants: 3-5 people per group
skills: Basic programming skills (C#)
requirements: Visual Studio, Windows 7 or 10

REGISTRATION

Who can participate?

If you have an interest in brainwaves, neural interfaces or new inventions, and want to learn more by getting stuck in, this is the event for you! The hackathon is an opportunity for all participants to come together in a creative, social space to experiment with innovative and novel analysis techniques and applications of brainwave data.

Don’t worry if your current expertise doesn’t stretch to brainwaves — Hack The Brain will provide online tutorial material in advance, and has BCI and OpenViBE drop-in workshops on the afternoon of Friday, 9th June.

 

 

There will also be artistic, scientific and technical mentors and helpers on hand all weekend to help you. By signing up to join a team, you'll get the opportunity to work intensely with new people from a range of backgrounds to explore, collaborate, converse, and create together over the course of the weekend.
