NeuroSpell was developed as part of my second year project at Imperial College London in 2016. The idea behind NeuroSpell is to create a low-cost Brain Computer Interface that would allow people who suffer from motor impairment to type on their computers. This project was carried out in a team of 7 people. Find out more at our website!


NeuroSpell box and headset

The hardware aspect of NeuroSpell consists of the EEG headset which records brain signals. These signals are then sent to the circuit boards inside the box where the signals are amplified and filtered before being transferred to the software.


In terms of software, OpenViBE is used to further process the signal and obtain the relevant brain impulses. These impulses are generated as the user interacts with our own user interface developed in Python.
