So I have a brain wave reading device?


I have tried some highlyexperimental programming as part of my PhD. As you may have figured out I am not just into Geophysics and MCSEM but I am also into human computer interactions.

The main reason I am into this area is that I HATE COMPUTERS. I won't get into too many explanations but I find that they perform poorly at communicating information. This is why I spend too much time on my interface rather than my actual software's innards.

First of all I found this device, the Neurosky Mindwave, and thought it was pretty cool. I have heard that UWA and Woodside and others were trialing these things out to understand the seismic/gravity/magnetic interpretation process so having to myself sounded awesome. It is actually meant as a toy, but it seemed like a pretty decent EEG. So as a hobbyist I had fun trialing out the 'toy's' potential. So after some time tinkering with drivers a few experiments were performed.

1. What is my brain pattern when I work?

2. Whoah, that first experiment was cool. Can you use this to detect liars?

3. Now those experiments were successful I wan't to claim my name to something. Lets make the first brain controlled interface system connected to a geophysical software package. Just for kicks.

Experiment 1 : What is my Working Pattern?

No real hypothesis. I knew how I worked but it was good to see it in the data.


I wrote my own logging program in java using the JNI code that came with the device which connected to the C drivers.
I actually did an experiment covering 8 hours of continuous work (coding).
This collected in excess of 24mb of raw data.
Each recording is computed around 1 second. The program recorded time [...]

The next gen beta CSEMoMatic Version.

It is shiny and new! See donwloads to try it out or see some screenshots from the gallery.

Yes, I know it is incomplete, but it is just a taste taster. Please send in your comments!

New Website

I like change. A new website using the wordpress engine with content management seems like a good place to start.
