Already making waves, the open-source brain-computer interface ‘OpenBCI’ project on Kickstarter is changing the way we see technology.

Yes, you read right. With already over $100,000 raised for this new frontier in brainwave technology, brainwaves are leaving the lab and moving into our everyday lives – all you will need is a computer.

Creators Joel Murphy and Conor Russomanno, and their 551 Kickstarter backers, believe open-source is the way to go to better understand our brains, and the best way to innovate when it comes to hardware and software development.

Hoping to make enough money from the Kickstarter campaign to mass produce their OpenBCI prototype, this innovation will make sending emails by just thinking about it a reality.
