Brain-Wave Machine Image Gallery

"Hey Cyborg, Just wanted to show you the brainwave goggles I built. I did a few things a little differently. I attached some 200-ish ohm resistors onto the male parallel port just so I don't fry anything. (Would be a shame to fry the laptop over the goggles.) I also programmed them using Linux (fedora core 2), using outb. Here's a picture of my goggles (I used welders goggles, full UV protection and you can lift them up to see when you're done.)"

Andrew is back with a really cool variation on the Brain-Wave Machine. He has created a circuit that allows you to drive the LED-goggles with the output from a stereo so the lights will strobe to the beat. No computer required. Here you can learn more about his "Audio Machine" including how to make your own.

The ones on the left are driven via parallel port, and the ones on the right are connected through the audio output of a stereo or soundcard.

I have designed a dual-colour upgrade for the goggles.

  • 8x   dual-colour leds (red/green)
  • 2x   74374 IC chips

The two 74374 IC's act like switches for all 8 data pins. Using the control pins (pins 1, 14, 16, 17 (only two are required)) from the parallel port to turn on the IC respectively. You could actually set up 32 individual lights with 4 IC's if you wanted to.
