Announcing MiND Hack: A design competition challenging teams at the University of Michigan to explore the frontiers of Brain Computer Interface (BCI) technology. The Music in Neural Dimensions Ensemble is officially inviting students to explore new frontiers in BCI technology, which will be made available through the Design Lab in the Duderstadt Center. Interdisciplinary teams will have until the end of the Winter semester to develop their projects, at which time they will be presented to a panel of judges, and prizes will be awarded in three categories:
$500 – Creative Implementation: Best use of brainwave technology to generate new art / music.
$500 – Software Design: Best use of brainwave technology to create a new game, or educational tool.
$500 – Accessibility: Best use of brainwave technology to enable a new form of interaction.
