Project update 5 of 8
We want to say a big thank you to all of our backers! The E3K Bio Sensing Platform campaign is officially funded! We have reached our funding goal. There are still a few days left to get your order in during the campaign.
Brain function is not just fascinating, but also the most complex and least-understood at the moment. Study of the brain has a plethora of areas starting from medical treatment, research on the functioning of the brain, brain-computer interface, robotics, gaming interface etc.
The E3K EEG Sensor will help you in capturing these signals, by placing electrodes at different places on your head. Similar to other sensors, the signal through the electrodes is filtered and amplified, which is then presented in the form of Analog Output.
Electroencephalography (EEG) is a method of recording electrical signals of the brain by placing electrodes at various places on the scalp. As we are aware, brain cells (neurons) communicate via electrical impulses. These electrodes capture the electrical activity and help in recording these signals. These captured signals are then put on a timeline as graphs and analyzed by the doctors and researchers for correctness.
Here we will develop a game by capturing our eyeball movement. In the game the balls are dropping from either left or right side of the screen randomly. User needs to look right / left to move the basket and catch the falling ball.
Items needed for this demo:
Connection diagram for capturing EEG for eye movement.
Figure 1: Graph showing eye movement data.
This signal can be stored, analyzed and used to build projects. One can analyze these signals, run AI / ML algorithm and study more about these. This game is one of many cases that the users can build with these sensors.
