This is the MindWave Mobile 2 from NeuroSky, an EEG headset that safely measures and transfers the power spectrum (alpha waves, beta waves, etc.) data via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or Bluetooth Classic to wirelessly communicate with your computer, iOS, or Android device. Simply slip this headset on to see your brainwaves change in real time! With the MindWave Mobile 2 you can monitor your levels of attention and relaxation --- and even learn about how your brain responds to your favorite music. This headset is an excellent introduction to the world of brain-computer interface!
The MindWave Mobile 2 is surprisingly simple, consisting only of a headset with a T-shaped headband (for a more comfortable and secure fit), a wider ear clip (to rest more comfortably on your ear lobe), and a flexible sensor arm (that now sits more comfortably on your forehead). The headset’s reference and ground electrodes are on the ear clip, while the EEG electrode is on the flexible sensor arm, resting on the forehead above the eye. Additionally, the MindWave Mobile 2 no longer needs to be placed into pairing mode because when the headset turns on it is automatically in that mode!
What's really great about the MindWave is the more than 100 brain training games, educational apps and development tools available through the NeuroSky, iOS and Android stores. You can also write your own programs to interact with MindWave Mobile+ by using the free developer tools.
Note: The MindWave Mobile 2 requires one AAA battery to operate. This battery is not included and will need to be purchased separately.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.
