EEG Analyzer reads electrical activity of the brain with EEG technology and blink strength with EMG sensor from NeuroSky MindWave Mobile device connected via Bluetooth to Android device. In order to use this application, you need to have NeuroSky MindWave Mobile device, which can be ordered from http://neurosky.com/ website. Direct link to the mentioned product: http://store.neurosky.com/products/brainwave-starter-kit
Application has the following features:

  • Reading attention level
  • Reading meditation level
  • Reading blink strength
  • Reading brain waves
  • Reading raw signal
  • Drawing plots of attention level change in time
  • Drawing plots of meditation level change in time
  • Saving attention level, meditation level and blink strength change history
  • Exporting saved signal to Dropbox servers in *.csv format
  • Possibility to turn on voice feedback informing about high attention or meditation level

Application is available in English and Polish language version.

Recently, I graduated from my university. Below, you can browse my Master Thesis presentation about Brain-Computer Interface for mobile devices. If you are interested in writing mobile Android applications communicating with NeuroSky MindWave Mobile device, you can check my EEG Reader project on GitHub, which can be treated as a basis for more advanced projects. During writing my Master Thesis, I created two another projects using similar concepts. Mentioned code may be a little bit outdated comparing to the newest Android trends, but feel free to fork and upgrade it.

Update: You can read a publication based on my Master Thesis in the Journal Of Medical Informatics & Technologies Vol. 24/2015, ISSN 1642-6037:

Brain Computer Interface for mobile devices – introduction

2013-06-05 Android, Brain Computer Interface, Master Thesis, Mobile No comments

Currently, I work on my Final Project and Master Thesis at Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice, Poland (original University name in Polish: Politechnika Śląska). I’ve decided to choose unconventional topic, which will allow me to use the knowlegde I already have, extend it and learn something new. Topic of my thesis is: Brain Computer Interface for mobile devices. BCI is a topic, which is not completely discovered nowadays. EEG and BCI have their origins in 1924, but up to now, they don’t have so many real life applications. We can find only some experiments and simple games. Recently, companies, engineers and scientists started to focus on brain waves, so this topic is worth investigation and it may be the future of modern computing.

In my project, I am going to use BCI for controlling mobile devices with Android OS. In my opinion, connecting brain to the smartphone can have really interesting outcome. Below, you can browse my presentation, which I have shown on my Final Project Seminar today.
