Neurosky Mindset + MaxMSP without passing by Arduino

    May 09 2010 | 11:07 pm
    Hi folks, I'm trying to connect the Neurosky Mindset BCI directly with MaxMSP via Bluetooth, without passing for an Arduino BT or bt modules. For instance aka.objects are already able to communicate with wii remotes or apple remotes and more via bluetooth. Is it possible, knowing the bt address of the BCI, to build an .mxo for RS232 or wl serial communication? Anyone interested who can help building such an object to read and decode data directly by Neurosky Mindset? Many tnx!!! Paco

      Wow, I really want to know if this is possible... I imagine all it would take is an enumeration of blue tooth devices and then pairing to the device.
      Do you know how many data channels that Neurosky Mindset can control? How practical is it? Do I have to concentrate so hard that I go cross eyed just to play a note?

      I built one but can't test it, I'm in Canada. Please please let me know if/how it works, I've been dying to get my hands on this darn thing.
      Here it is, no idea if it works.

      Whoops, sorry here's the help patch. Having trouble with the forum tonight.
      You don't need the bundle. There's one located in the .mxo.

      Thank you very much above all... I tried your nice object but it "Cannot get EEG data: not connected." I was trying last night to build an external object with the np_mindeset class by the neurosky developers. But I'm stack in xcode not able to make an mxo, also following guides about externals in c++. I really appreciate your job on this new object understanding on my unsleep skin the weight of programming, but please let's try to let it work. What do you think could be the problem? Really many thanks cap10!
      for anthoiny: I think you can output 11 signals by neurosky (looking at the basic software they give with the set)

      If you can give me more feedback I might be able to find the problem. What error message does it give when you send it the "open" message after you pair the object in bluetooth?

      Hey guys I'm trying to use your thinkgear.mxo with a new MindWave mobile, but with no luck. When click "open" I get a "connection attempt unsuccessful" both with Thinkgear on and off. When I launch the object with the metro i got "Cannot get EEG data: not connected". Im using max5 on mac Lion. Any idea?? thanks! m.

      Does your object/patch only work with Max5? As i can't seem to get Max7 or Max6 to recognise the object! Any help at all would be much appreciated, i've tried dropping the bundle and .mxo in multiple places throughout the max folders on my mac but to no avail!
