Aidan has finished his science fair project. To be fair, he has had it finished for a while but the finishing touches on his video, PowerPoint and his display board are now complete.

This has been a real fun project to watch come together. 

He has been working on training his AR Drone to operate on EEG commands via a neuro network.  

It is a far cry from my gold medal winning computer program on the Solar System that I compiled back in the early 80's on a Commodore Pet! 
He used his Uncle Mike's E_POC Emotiv headset to deliver the commands to the computer program operating his A.R. Drone.  

Emotiv EPOC is a high resolution, multi-channel, wireless neuroheadset. The EPOC uses a set of 14 sensors plus 2 references to tune into electric signals produced by the brain to detect the user’s thoughts, feelings and expressions in real time.  
He wanted to prove that neuro interfacing can be used to allow quadriplegics and those with challenged limbic systems to operate computerized systems. 
 Thanks to Principal Drover over at Virginia Park for letting Uncle Mike and Aidan use the gym to practice.
