The Puzzlebox Orbit is a brain-controlled helicopter. Operated with an EEG headset, users can fly the Orbit by focusing their concentration and clearing their mind. Colorful visuals and physical feedback help provide positive reinforcement while developing skills of attention and mental relaxation. What makes the Puzzlebox Orbit truly unique however is the open release of all source code, hardware schematics, 3D models, and the step-by-step hacking instructions which are published freely online. Puzzlebox seeks to aid the pursuit of science and education by inviting its users to modify their products and make them their own.
