Over $8,000 in prizes in cash and hardware prizes sponsored by Vizzario/VSP, IEEE Brain Initiative, IEEE SMC and Qusp.

The goal of these hackathons is to provide hands-on experience to students and professionals interested in creating applications using signals measured from the brain and/or body. Hackers can use real-time signals or sample data sets for their applications.

Fields of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Integration of neurotechnology with the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Closed-loop cognitive games (including Virtual/Augmented Reality, VR/AR)
  • Control computational and robotic devices using BCI

Brief overview of hardware and software available to participants will be part of the introduction.
