The Pangolin Scales Project demonstrates a 1.024 channel BCI (Brain-Computer Interface) that is able to extract information from the human brain with an unprecedented resolution. The extracted information is used to control the Pangolin Scale Dress interactively into 64 outputs.
The dress and BCI will be shown live on a model during the Ars Electronica Festival. The 1.024 channel brain- computer interface is also used as input device for the BR41N.IO Designers’ Hackathon during the Festival September 9-13, 2020 ars.electronica.art/news/en/
The Pangolin Scales project is realized by a cooperation of researchers from the Institute for Integrated Circuits at JKU, the brain-computer interface experts from g.tec medical engineering GmbH and Dutch FashionTech designer Anouk Wipprecht.
