[Cyborg] [Noisebridge-discuss] The Next HOPE

We have a few OpenEEG boards at NB.  I'm not sure if all of them are claimed for projects already.

 

In any case I think that a collaborative project with one or more human body interfaces would be way interesting.  Daniel, maybe you could put out the word in other places, too.

 

Mitch.
