Interactive Brainwave Art Installation to let the people control sounds and visuals with the power of their minds in real time with our Neuroheadset and Neurofeedback applications

We would like to contribute with an interactive brainwave art installation to the awesome workshop environment at Magneet Festival based on the technology of our startup.
Our startup is Berlin based and specialised in the production of Brain Computer Interfaces.
Among other things, we have done Interactive Brainwave installations at Makerfair Berlin, Open Tech Summit & Feel Festival.

The workshop we would love to set up at Magneet Festival would have the following set up:

There will be the possibility for 2 people at once to try out our Neuroheadset with our newest neurofeedback / interactive brainwave art software applications, such as some of the following:

One of the applications enhances the ability to calm down the mind and to meditate.
And this is how it works:
1. The user puts on the headband which is followed by a quick calibration process of 30 seconds
2. The user then chooses his favorite sound
3. Every time the user gets closer to the desired state of mind, like relaxation in this case, they hear their favorite sound and can see the colorful mandala shown on a screen slow down its movement in accordance to the adjustment in the user's brainwaves.

One applications enhances the ability to focus and concentrate.
And this is how it works:
1. The user puts on the headband which is followed by a quick calibration process of 30 seconds
2. The user sees an airplane which is flying over a landscape of colorful hills. Every time the user gets closer to the desired state of mind, sharpened focus in this case, the pace and height the plane increases in accordance to the adjustment in the user's brainwaves.

Other Applications:
- Control a piano with the power of the brain
- Control an artistic 3D objects with the power of the brain

Through the real time feedback of the mentioned applications the users can learn to change their brainwave activity with evidence based and sustainable results and to discover their own repertoire of abilities to control their way to focus and to calm down the mind or even get into meditative states.
And through the visualization on the big screens or via projector it will be also entertaining for the audience or the people who will try it out next.

Further details of the installation:
- technical devices which will be used: 2 laptops, 2 projectors or 2 big screens, 2 neurofox neuroheadsets, 1-2 pair of earphones or speakers if available
- technical requirements: 2 surfaces where we can project onto, or 2 areas where we can hang up white canvas material to project onto, or 2 big screens; + 1 electricity plug-in
- time needed to set up the installation: 30 minutes if there are already projectable surfaces or screens available.
- optimal time slot per installation: 3 hours
