Last week I gave a Pecha Kucha at one of the SustainRCA evenings, revealing my secret sustainability agenda for my main RCA project, the Metacognition Revolution… This is the first time I’m going to try and explain how my project, which is about facilitating meditation […]

Earpiece refinement

After deciding my initial shape through modelling on the example ears in clay I am now refining to ensure the best fit with as wide a range of ears as possible. I have printed three sets of incrementally changing pieces to explore three different choices. […]

Neural Lace

I’m continuing to work on the EEG Headset design, the core component of which is the support material which holds the sensors to the scalp. This will be attached the the ‘headphone’ style element to cover the top and back half of the skull, and […]

Pod Life

For reasons described in my Brief Refinement post I am now designing a Faraday Screen/Pod for us in the EEG Mirror ceremony. It is needed to reduce interference from other electrical devices found in a clinic, to the incredibly sensitive sensors with-in the EEG Cap. […]

Brief Refinement

My time working with the neuroscientists has allowed me to refine my brief for the EEG Mirror. Here is what I must add to my existing work. Firstly the positioning of the sensors is a little different to what I have been working on, rather […]
