Brain Awareness Day Pictures

April 10th, 2011 aakhtar Comments off

Brain Awareness Day 2011 was a great success. Hundreds of people showed up, and we constantly had a long line for our exhibit (possibly even the longest). Both kids and parents were amazed by moving the Rhino Robot using motor imagery detected by the Emotiv EEG headset. Thanks go to Aadeel Akhtar, Bilal Mehdi, Miles Johnson, Abdullah Acke, Jamie Norton, and Matt Petrucci for putting together and running the exhibit. Pictures from our booth below.
