Art and Brainwaves with VVVV

tutorial node13 Brain Emotiv EEG Brainwaves
Credits: Thanks to Bitrayne for Mind Your OSC's applications More infos: http://www.emotiv.com/store/apps/applications/135/1446


Installation instructions:

  • Put the unzipped folder on a location in your computer, desktop is ok.
  • choose the right version of the packet. Patches are tested both on a b27 winXP machine and a b29 win7 machine.
  • Basically, if you have a Emotiv EPOC (also non-research editions) you just need to install Mind Your OSC's application and Mind your OSC's RAW version-COD. It's also suggested to install Emotiv Development Kit. You can download the last version on Emotiv website ( http://www.emotiv.com/ ).
  • You must have at least VVVV b27 installed and working on your machine, don't forget add-ons.
  • Connect the emotive EPOC USB receiver, turn on the headset then launch Mind Your OSC's or Mind your OSC's RAW version-COD if you want to work with raw EEG data.
  • Launch VVVV patches marked with "START" to see some practical examples and theory on how to use EEG to control VVVV!
  • Enjoy :)

Does the patch also work with EMOTIV Insight ?

Thank you!

No it doesn't
U can't use MindYourOSC with Insight ( only with Epoc at the moment)

Insight is rubbish... I had 2 of them and got rid of both. My old Epoc is still the best, although it's sensor contacts get corroded easily (electrode oxidation) and it's a pain to clean!

Emotiv recently updated the firmware on all of their headsets and a new version of Mind Your OSC's was released on 10/31/16. The new release comes with support for the Insight. Any chance you could revamp and update this to work with the new additions?
