Thinknote150Make music with your mind using Thinknote, an iOS mobile application, and the NeuroSky MindWave headset.  The MindWave headset reads brain activity and creates two algorithms- attention and meditation- and recognizes blinking. Thinknote translates these into sounds.  With Thinknote, you can hear what it sounds like when you think of a loved one, when you’re studying for an exam,  or when you meditate.  Discover new new ways of making music with Thinknote.

The possibilities are wide open!


We created Thinknote with idea of translating visual data into something you wouldn’t need to look at to understand. This helps reduce the amount of feedback while you’re monitoring your brainwaves. Also, it’s something that unlocks the mind’s expression by turning data into something easily recognizable, sound. In this current release, we created the meditation sound as a vocal chorus. The attention algorithm is represented as violins and a string section. Blinks are a percussive cymbal crash sound.  We believe using escalating notes that start low in the octave scale and going higher, mirrors the way the brain waves move up and down from low points to high points.  This is determined by the value from the MindWave of intensity of brainwave, for attention, meditation or blinks. See how the colors mimic the audio, adding another layer of feedback.
