Remember - Future of Storytelling 2013
“Remember” is a typographic installation inspired by wooden push toys, that allows you to move physical letters with your mind. Created by Red Paper Heart as part of the Story Arcade at the Future of Storytelling conference, Oct 3rd, 2013 - New York City
Arduino app that connects to the Mindwave reader via bluetooth, parses the input and outputs it to a servo motor with a certain logic. When it's not receiving good or any data from the brainwave reader it automatically defaults to manual control via a potentiometer.
It uses the following components:
- Mindwave Mobile headset
- Arduino Uno
- Bluetooth modem BlueSmirf Silver
- Servo - Hitec HS-805BB (Giant Scale)
- LED with 220ohm pull down resistor
- Slide or knob potentiometer
- External power supply with variable voltage
Wired the following way:
The Arduino code to parse the Mindwave data is based on the following sample from Neurosky, with some small modifications to make it non-blocking.
That sample includes a tutorial on how to pair the BlueSmirf with the Mindwave headset. Another good resource on setting up the Bluetooth module can be found here
