Puzzlebox Pyramid acts as a home base and remote control unit for the Orbit. It features a custom-designed, programmable micro-controller compatible with popular boards from Arduino. Twelve multi-colored LED lights are arranged according to clock positions on the face of the Pyramid and are used to indicate current levels of concentration, mental relaxation, and EEG signal […]
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.
Puzzlebox Glass Goggles
Puzzlebox wishes to propose a new concept interface for Augmented Reality systems such as Google’s Project Glass: Youtube: Puzzlebox Glass Goggles Demonstration Our demonstration features an Android application which uses a reverse-engineered version of Google’s “Goggles” API (which technically has not yet been made available to the public) to perform an image-recognition search on photos captured automatically […]
The Raht Racer: Exercise While Commuting
Featured on Kickstarter! Ride in comfort to the office each the morning, then get in your workout while trapped in gridlock on the way home, and pocket the time and fees spent on that gym membership. The experience of bike commuting, previously reserved for the most dedicated sub-culture of cyclist is now open to the […]
Pyrokinesis 2.0 Puzzlebox has completed an update to last year’s Pyrokinesis art installation. This new version of brain-controlled pyrotechnics has been redesigned to be easily portable and relies on simple Android and Arduino hardware to operate a servo motor connected to what is essentially an over-sized Bunsen burner. Unfortunately we will not be releasing open documentation or software for this particular project due […]
Guinness World Record
On March 17, 2011, software engineered by Puzzlebox was successfully used to establish a new Guinness World Record during a filming of the season finale of UK’s The Gadget Show. In association with our partners at NeuroSky, MindWave EEG headsets were employed by the hosts of the show to control a crane weighing over 60 tons, picking up and maneuvering a car across […]
Puzzlebox Brainstorms is an open source software suite supporting school projects that help introduce students to basic neuroscience and brain-computer interfaces. The project provides exercises which help students to learn and practice focusing their attention and concentration, using technology to allow them to drive robots, fly helicopters, and play video games.
