Brain Controlled-Pinball Machine

Live demonstration of a brain-controlled Adams Family pinball machine by imagined movements at the CeBit IT fair 2010 in Hannover. While the player imagines left and right hand movements, algorithms decode his brain activity signals in realtime into control signals for the pinball machine. The demonstration shows the cutting edge performance of a brain-computer interface system with regard of timing precision of the control signal. Other (slower) applications are developed for communication needs of e.g. paralized patients. Involved partners of this project: Technische Universität Berlin (Machine Learning Lab); Charité University Hospital Berlin, Dept. Neurology. Pinball machine was kindly sponsored by BrainProducts GmbH. Credit:
