Brainihack is a weekend long hackathon that will put Brain Computer Interface devices in the hands of developers, designers, makers and visionaries.
Lately a wave of brain-machine interface devices has been hitting the consumer market. While the concept of EEG in everyday life is compelling, it has been adopted mainly by gaming companies and still remains highly uncharted waters for most. Putting this technology in the hands of makers will undoubtedly carry exciting results not only for their novelty, but also for their usefulness or sheer beauty. Come explore using the brain as an interface!
Brainihack brings together entrepreneurs, developers, designers and artists for a weekend of hacking and app development for consumer brain machine interface devices from Emotiv, NeuroSky, and other exciting startups. As any hackathon, ideas will be pitched and selected, teams formed on the spot or beforehand, and apps developed within 2 days. Participants are also welcome to BYOD (bring your own device).
WHO Developers, designers, makers, brain-geeks and visionaries. Anyone who has a pinch of curiosity and wants to take part in the brain-tech wave that is upon us.
WHEN Friday – Saturday, October 11th-12th, 2013.
