Human brain on the internet – the Brainternet is here – Raspberry Pi used to visualise brain data

Adam Pantanowitz and a team from the Wits School of Electrical and Information Engineering in Johannesburg have put the data from a human brain on the Internet for the first time. Using an Emotiv EEG device (pictured), they collect EEG (electroencephalogram) data with a Raspberry Pi and then live stream the data to an API which displays the data on an open website, effectively making this an IoT brain! Currently limited to arm movement, the team hopes eventually (and scarily) to have an input/output stream to the brain. More information can be found on the Wits website and in the video below:
