Deadline: 8 May 2017, 5pm
Hack the Brain Dublin is an immersive, creative hackathon weekend in Science Gallery Dublin which aims to get artists, designers, neuroscientists, experimental psychologists, developers and engineers working together in transdisciplinary teams to develop ideas into prototype artworks, objects, inventions or interfaces which use or harness brain signals and brain-computer interface (BCI) technology.
Science Gallery Dublin invites you to submit your proposal for a project to be undertaken at the Hack The Brain Hackathon over the weekend of June 9th—11th, 2017. Science Gallery Dublin can provide travel and/or accommodation support up to €500 for the 6 successful applicants (terms & conditions apply to this non-transferable travel bursary).
Projects should relate to an artistic goal and show a relevant connection to artistic expression, as well as a concept based on scientific evidence and valid neurophysiological parameters. EEG headsets will be available for use by the teams and mentors will be on hand to provide guidance in the use of the hardware and software. At the start of the weekend teams will be formed, and they will spend the weekend developing a prototype of the project that you proposed with your leadership. At the end of the weekend all teams will pitch their work to a jury and the public.
6 winning ideas will be announced on 16th May 2017.
The hardware available for teams to use will include EEG caps, wireless amplifiers and electrodes from Brain Products GmbH, and Enobio headsets from Starlab; VR Oculus Rift, 3D printer, audio speakers, data projectors etc.
