Wavebeat is inspired by the idea that songs play an influence on our performance and brain activity throughout the day. Therefore, Wavebeat was born to see which songs are the most impactful in our performance and mind.
What it does
Wavebeat collects brain wave and performance data from an electroencephalogram (EEG) headset while a user is playing a mathematical challenge and listening to a song. This data is then processed and stored to make comparisons with other songs and provide a personalized dashboard for the user. After finishing the challenge, the user has access to all of his brain wave & performance data through intuitive tables and modern graphs. The user can compare how good is one song to another and find the most impactful song for their performance & brain in a second of time!
How we built it
For one song, Wavebeat received more than 12,000 data points with all the focus, relaxation, and brain wave values. Therefore, we saved this data in JSON files and then summarized it into a table and 10 charts.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of completing a data-themed hackathon using hardware and brain wave reading. The time was really limiting and Wavebeat's team is proud of finishing an entire platform that works well and it's interesting. Besides that, we are proud of the translation of 12,000 data points per song to 10 modern graphs!
What we learned
This project taught us the importance of patience, communication, perseverance, and resilience in the times we were facing difficulties. Besides that, we learned how to start manipulating EEG data!
