San Francisco Virtual Reality + NeurotechSF
SF VR + NeurotechSF: BCI + VR, AR + AI + Blockchain: Meet Share Present & Build

This meetup designed to unite the BCI hacking community with VR developers
You can present your start up, people can share what they are working on, invite others to collaborate, we have a slack channel and a discord channel and several facebook groups.

We are currently meeting monthly.
Join SF VR and NeurotechSF joint meetups at Noisebridge every other Friday from 7pm to 9pm for a Guild Night for NeuroHackers to work together to adapt Brain Computer Interfaces to fit Virtual Reality Headsets and incorporate Artificial Neural Networks for interpreting and visualizing the sensor data.
Until we have actual hardware to work on we are open to presentations from the members, project proposals, plans, pitches etc.

Goal #1 Adapt BCI hardware to fit a VR headset.

The first chapter of this project is about adapting the BCI sensor kit to fit the a VR headset, similar to how Neurable EEG Headset was built to fit the HTC Vive.

We will have an open source 3D printed hardware and open source software.

This will allow us to have the flexibility to integrate different sensor systems as they become available. I’m interested in making an OpenEIT Electrical Impedience Tomography headset that fits the HTC Vive as the follow up project, and there are plenty more projects like that.

I also represent a developer called the Vision Agency that makes MicrodoseVR at MicrodoseVR.com and our team has already built an application that uses the Muse EEG faceplate for HTC Vive to track your heart beat and make the graphics in the VR app pulse with the beat of your heart.

We need 3D models of the various AR VR headsets that have accurate dimensions that we can use to build 3D printable parts that will allow us to attach sensors to those headsets.

We are still trying to acquire SDK's for BCI to be used in Unreal Engine and Unity.

I want to send EEG signals into that point cloud in VR, like a tensor field, that is a neural network so t.t its visual changes are a reflection of our EEG waves.

I want to encode the light and the sound with binaural beat or isochronic beat patterns so it’s very stimulating, but also EEG driven.

Bring your laptop, your AR VR BCI AI demo, bring pens, bring notebooks, bring snacks or drinks that you want to share. I think of it as a potluck night, you can bring food if you want, other people may become hungry by the end of the night.

Trivia: We are inviting the NeurotechSF group to join the Neuroscience Dream Team for their meetup every Wednesday from 8pm to 10pm, but that is for conversation.
