The Digital Self: Interfacing the Body, A Workshop in OpenBCI
As computing devices become more integrated with our physiology, designers and engineers are looking to biometric input and output interfaces as new tools for creative expression. In this workshop you will explore the electrical network of the human body, and develop an in-depth understanding of its biological signals by experimenting with the state of the art, open source bio-sensing platform, OpenBCI.

OpenBCI stands for open-source brain-computer interface (BCI). The OpenBCI Board is a versatile and programmable microcontrollerbased on the Arduino platform that can be used to sample electrical brain activity (EEG), muscle activity (EMG), heart rate (EKG), and more. During the workshop, you'll learn what the various electrical signals of your body look like, how to control them, and how to use them as a new means of interacting with other technologies.

Not only will you get hands on experience with a powerful and customizable bio-sensing tool, but you'll also learn about the current state of the BCI industry and it's overlaps with the domains of wearable technology, fashion tech, game design, quantified self, neurofeedback, and more. Don't forget your brain!

- Proficiency with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and/or other electronics prototyping tools
- Familiarity with Processing/openFrameworks and/or other creative coding languages
- Laptop (please email erica@eyebeam.org if you cannot provide this)
- For the duration of the workshop, you will be provided with the OpenBCI board with electrodes (included in workshop fee)

Participants will receive a $100 discount on purchasing the OpenBCI technology.  Available during or following the workshop.

OpenBCI co-founder and CEO, Conor Russomanno, comes from a mixed background of art, engineering, and science. He has dedicated the first chapter of his career to interfacing the brain, rethinking business, and turning crazy ideas into reality.
