Hack Your Brain

Using Sound & Light Machines to achieve desired states of consciousness

What would happen if you played a brainwave sequence into your brain? Answer: if it is a sequence that brings you to a desired state, it brings you there. Anyone can sleep like sleeping beauty, meditate like a zen master, or wake up without caffeine.

This talk will cover an overview of research in the field of "brainwave entrainment," which is a fancy way of saying synchronizing one's brain to achieve a desired state of consciousness, such as sleep, meditation, or waking up.

Starting with history of the field, the talk will delve into the background information necessary to understand the useful and fun Sound & Light Brainwave Machine project that the presenter built and wrote the main project article for in MAKE Magazine issue #10 (May-2007). This understanding will include the electronics, the firmware, and the physiology of the brain.

The talk will conclude with a short discussion of the more complex project the presenter is currently working on, which is a more complex version of the MAKE article project.

Simple Sound & Light Brainwave Machines will be available for people to try out after the presentation.
