  1. Seems like a cool conference. I'm glad that there are more and more folks trying to drive innovation in this area.

    If you're interested in trying this stuff yourself, there are more and more consumer-level systems appearing...from OpenEEG, to Neurosky, to Emotiv. Friends of mine have been working on one for 6 months and, after two rounds of prototypes, finally felt ready to launch on Kickstarter.

    Thanks for the work on your blog to spread the love of brain science!
