EEG brainwave signals are used as biofeedback controllers for a video mixer built in Max/MSP/Jitter software. When the participant’s brain waves change, the video changes in realtime
, creating a biofeedback loop. This is Carrie Gates
' Psychic Armchair TV.
"The Gallery Assistant fits the participant with the EEG sensor headband, which then reads their changing brainwaves and sends that data as integers over a wireless Bluetooth connection to the hidden laptop computer, controlling the aspects of the video playback system. The trick for participants is to learn how to train their brainwaves to respond to the graphic imagery seen on the screen in order to see all of the videos.
Clips are selected from a large bank of over 100 videos, each of which may be displayed for different durations and mixed with other videos in different ways depending on the organic path of the mental activity of the participant." [via
