Brain Wave Machine

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

By using light and sound to induce these brain states we are able to gain greater control and efficiency of brain usage. Furthermore, improvements in relaxation, memory, creativity, stress management, sleep disorders, and even ESP(!) can be had by utilizing a brain-wave machine. Commercial brain-wave machines cost hundreds of dollars, but you can

build your own using only a few dollars worth of components. In this document I will walk you through hardware construction and softw1are control of an easy to build brain-wave machine. Disclaimer: I am not an electronics expert or a biofeedback specialist. If you fry your hardware (or your wetw1are) don`t come whining (or drooling) to me. I assume no responsibility for what you do with this information. With simplicity being the goal, brain-wave goggles can be constructed from suitable eyewear, such as safety glasses, and an array of LED`s (Light Emitting Diodes). I`m using the PC`s parallel port to control the flashrate of the LED`s. Audio stimulation can be provided by a stereo and headphones or the PC`s soundcard. I`m using 8 LED`s, one per parallel port data out line. This provides an easy way to control each individual LED allowing for some variations in pattern and intensity. Each lense on the goggles will hold four LED`s in a diamond pattern. The LED`s are powered by the parallel port and controlled via softw1are. 8 LED`s (choose green, yellow, or red LED`s) DB25 pin male parallel port connector (or butcher a printer cable) Goggles (safety glasses or similar eyewear) Wire Glue the LED`s into the holes. Be sure there is room betw1een the LED`s and your face when you are wearing the goggles. Actually, the LED`s fit tightly in 3/16" holes and I didn`t need to use glue. Wire all of the LED`s cathode leads together and...
