===========

mindcontrol provides an api that allows python programs to capture data that
is emitted by the NeuroSky MindWave headsets. It uses a socket to connect to
the ThinkGearConnector application that acts as a server for the headset data::

    #!/usr/bin/env python

    from mindcontrol.userbrain import Brain
    from time import sleep

    SLEEP_TIME = 5 # seconds
    CONCENTRATE_TIME = 5 # seconds
    my_brain = Brain()
    while not my_brain.isConnected():
        print 'Not connected to brain yet. Will try again in %d seconds' % SLEEP_TIME
        sleep(SLEEP_TIME)
    # brain is now connected, get some stuff
    print 'Concentrate really hard for the next %d seconds!' % CONCENTRATE_TIME
    # sample once each second
    conc_vals = []
    for idx in xrange(CONCENTRATE_TIME):
        conc_vals.append(my_brain.getProperty('attention'))
        sleep(1)
    print 'Your recorded concentration values were:\n\t[%s]' % ', '.join([str(x) for x in conc_vals])
