Hi puzzlebox!

First I'd like to say that the orbit+mindwave+brainstorm combo is the ultimate plaything for geeks and engineers alike! So, congratulations and keep the cool things coming, you have a fan/customer right here!

Thanks for writing Rui.

You've asked many good questions, and thank you for allowing us to respond in our forums so that others can benefit from the answers!

-Lego Mindstorms mode works (I can see brainwave readings on the UI, stuff communicates, etc.)

-R/C Helicopter mode does not work (no brainwave readings, can't connect to heli, etc.). I only tested with the Orbit.

So, my questions are:

-Can one use the Mindwave mobile headset with your brainstorm software to control R/C Helicopters?

The helicopter control in Puzzlebox Brainstorms was actually designed for an earlier Brain-Controlled Helicopter project - a precursor to the Puzzlebox Orbit. The details of that project are documented here:

No, the hardware in the Blade mCX2 is very different from the Puzzlebox Orbit helicopter. Most notably the Blade helicopter uses radio signals for operation whereas the Orbit uses infrared light.

We actually have a program called "Puzzlebox Orbit for Workstations" which is currently undergoing Beta testing. When released we will support Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. You can see a preview screenshot here:

An announcement will be made when the release ready.
