EEG Hardware

Posted on 2014/02/02

I’ve identified two potential headsets for EEG data acquisition.¬†Over the course of the next several months I will be evaluating each.

Neurosky Mindwave EEG

Neurosky Mindwave EEG

 

The Neurosky MindWave is a relatively inexpensive ($99) option, but is limited in that it does not have APIs for raw access to EEG data, only to am affect model developed by the manufacture. It also utilized only two EEG sensors, so it is somewhat limited in its reporting options.

Emotiv EEG

Emotiv EEG

The Emotiv EEG headset is a more expensive option (at $250 or $750 depending on licensing), but it utilizes a 16 sensor setup and has APIs for raw EEG data as well as affective models developed by the manufactures., including an api for interpreting facial expressions, emotional states, and subject intent.
