A Human-Machine Interface

The Scholar: Mac Kongsomjit

The Project: Practical Applications of a Beginner-Grade EEG Headset

The Essential Question: I worked on integrating brain-computer interface technology with an eye-tracking technology to create a human-machine interface on my Surface.

What I Learned: I found out the hard way that writing code to parse a third-party raw data-stream is a lot harder than it is on paper, especially when I’m trying to self-study everything. In the future I need to be more cognizant of leaving myself buffer time when planning out a project timeline.

The Code (at least a very little bit of it…):

import processing.serial.*;

Serial blueT;

Serial blueTOut;

int blueString;

boolean sent = false;
