Come out on Sunday, November 3rd for an mHealth hackathon at the 20Mission Co-Working Space in San Francisco. Attendees will be eligible for one week free in the 20Mission Co-working space.

Learn about MindWave and Somaxis wearable biosensor!


NeuroSky and Somaxis will be there with EEG and EMG biosensor devices, and experts will be on hand to help answer your questions about how to work with these devices.

Build With Us or Build Your Own


Throughout the day, we will be building an API for the Somaxis Cricket, and sharing the code so you can code along with us.

If, on the other hand, you already have a great idea for what to build, bring that idea with you to the hackathon.

Even better, bring along anything you can prepare ahead of time (sketches, designs, mock-ups, etc) and use the time and information provided to develop your idea into a working application, then share it with the world!

At the end of the day, we'll invite you to share your application with the group.

What Do I Need?


We will provide a space, electrical outlets, internet, power, food, refreshments, and experts to help you learn to use NeuroSky MindWave Mobile and Somaxis Cricket and write your application. Just bring your laptop, ideas, and enthusiasm to complete the mix.



Developers of the coolest apps will win a NeuroSky MindWave Mobile wearable brain scanner
