What it does
Collect EEG data (i.e. brainwaves) and classify your mental states. One common mental state that is often classified is motor imagery, that is to say imagined motor movements (e.g moving your hand left or right). By classifying data from the motor cortex we can extract controls to interact with the physical/digital world.
We built a similar project for the Exploratorium of SF but not with the HTM. We learned from the Exploratorium exhibit that neurofeedback is going to be key for a good user experience in this project. And of course a quality classifier for the temporal data :-)
