Use the Muse electroencephalography headset to start integrating brain signals into your video games. In this workshop you will learn how to connect the Muse headset to your computer, visualize your brain signals, and implement some basic machine learning techniques.

This workshop is open to everyone of all genders, ages, and experiences. Kids are welcome to participate but should be supervised by their parental guardian.

Before coming to the workshop:

  1. Bring a Windows laptop
  2. Install Python 2.7 (and packages), a popular, powerful, free and simple to read scripting language
  3. Install Muse SDK, the software development kit provided to play around with the Muse EEG headband. We’ll be providing the headband but you’ll need to install the software ahead of time!
  4. Install MuLES an EEG server that allows device-agnostic applications
