Python wrappers for the NeuroSky Mindwave Headsets

Project description

===========
mindcontrol
===========

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])
