The Brainwriter, an extension of Not Impossible’s Eyewriter Project for graffiti artist TemptOne, launched at the Barbican’s “Digital Revolution” exhibition on July 3 2014, its novel combination of brainwave sensors & eye-tracking technology enables the paralyzed to create & communicate!
The BrainWriter system utilizes an eye-tracker for navigating a computer mouse across the screen PLUS an EEG headset that assigns click or key instructions to calibrated thought patterns, or brainwaves.
The Brainwriter Build Team: Javed Gangjee (concept originator), David Putrino, Daniel Goodwin & Sam Bergen. OpenBCI EEG expertise and equipment donated by Joel Murphy & Conor Russomanno.
Not Impossible Pit Crew & Creative: Mick Ebeling, Caskey Ebeling, Elliot Kotek, Paul Freeth, Anke Loh, Solomon Rossi, Nichole Caruso, Hannah Actor-Engel, Jessica Jacklin, Ryan Shaw & Megan Shields. Game created by Kaho Abe and Ramsey Nasser, enabled by Eyebeam.
