Hello Noisebridge!

We shall meet on Wednesday, May 1, at 6:30, because we're all stars! 
Python class is over, now let's put that good know-how to work on some 
maths and science stuffs. There may also be comestibles, just this once.

Come down to the 6:30 share-a-thon. Discuss your dreams and other 
applications of neuron-monitoring devices. I want to investigate lexical 
dream content and brainwaves of people all over the planet, starting 
with Noisebridge. Thus far, I have an EEG device and a semi-incomplete 
research facility (HSNPs).

To get up to speed with what I've been looking into read on. And all you 
varied neuro-hackers out there please do go to the brainliner.jp site, 
it's amazing.

I've attached a copy of a sample data set taken while writing this 
message. Also attached is a screen shot of the GUI that the python 
scripts create. The scripts run great on Debian. The dongle that comes 
with the device has an antenna to pick-up the WiFi transmissions from 
the device. It opens the right sockets, makes a few hand shakes, and 
promptly peaces out. Neurosky purports the device will give a good 
signal up to 10m. It spews ~500 measures per second.

This is the EEG device. Specs included.

And here's a link to Yukiyasu Kamitani's landing page with ATR, Advanced 
Telecommunications Research Institute International. He's head of the 
Department of Neuroinfomatics, and lead reacher on the publication 
below. They are working on predicting dream sequences from EEG and MRI 
data taken while asleep.

Kanitani and others are open-sourcing a good bit of their work. See git 
hub repository and standardized repository for sharing neuro-data below. 
They're set-up to run in Mat Lab, but w/e.

Really, go to brainliner and then giggle crescendoing into mad-scientist 
roar.

And finally, to pass on a message from a friend, because it's open in my 
browser and seems appropriate.

See you Wednesday.
