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 and registration 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
 

‌‌ Dream Painting

To use the dream painting app, the user is wearing an unicorn headset while sleeping. When he wakes up, he will get an image created according to his EEG signals.

soft-/hardware specifications: unicorn
participants: 1 group, 3-5 people per group
skills: Basic programming skills (Matlab, Simulink, C#)

Registration

 

Flight Control

The unicorn is supported by the P300 based spelling application intendiX. It is possible to move a drone with intendiX.
