MindCraft: Controlling Drones With Your Mind

JDK Technologies

Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

This session focuses on leveraging Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) devices and JavaScript to fly a retail drone. We will delve into the wealth of interaction models that BCI devices can offer for piloting drones as well as their limitations. This session aims to give a broad overview of the state of the BCI industry as we know. It is the goal of this session to empower participants to think outside the box of what it means to interact with an object and foster a desire in the participants to go out into the world and create impactful tools that will help grow our understanding of mind-controlled devices and interfaces. It is not required to have a deep understanding of how BCI devices work or a technical understanding beyond basic programming constructs.

Programming descriptions are generated by participants and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of SXSW.
