Description: A brain-machine interface is a device that allows a computer to read brain activity and use it to interact with the computer. This technology can be used to create robotic arms and wheelchairs controlled by someone’s brain, but requires extensive brain-training, which kids with cerebral palsy are often not willing to do. This project is proposing to develop a brain machine interface video game that could make this training more interesting and accessible to kids.
