    Guys...
    1. The neurons do give off electrical charge when discharging. Neurons fire at about 100hz. If you want to detect neuron activity, you can use an EEG.
    That being said, actually reading thoughts...yeah, not easy at all - that's a lifetime of work, and I don't know anyone who knows enough about the brain to actually abstract out thought patterns. However, you can learn to give off specific types of patterns in order to control a device with your brain waves.

    Why are you giving him a hard time?

    Also, when they are referring to "mind control" on Forum TV with that project, they obviously chose that phrase to attract attention. It's not controlling a brain, but rather using someone's brain waves to control some device. Projects like these can work. You would have to design the communication protocol, put it in a circuit, have the device that interacts with it via some chip, and have the sensor. This would enable you to control things at a distance without using your hands or anything else - just think of it. Probably would require quite a bit of concentration though. Personally, I would like a keyboard interface like this. I can already type at about 80 words/minute, imagine what I could do with no hands.

    LOL - sure you could, you'd have your hands free to do it with after all.

    Further guys, radio is just a frequency range in the electromagnetic spectrum. Anything that gives off ionized particles can be detected. Hence - EEG. You guys should encourage newbies rather than making fun of them. The latter, though you're having a good time, really discourages learning. We NEED more learning in the United States, as our public school systems leave a lot to be desired. Even if he thinks he's going to read thoughts and maybe be able to tell what's going on, in the end after doing a project with encouragement, he'll have learned quite a bit.

    We're happy to help those who want it, who are willing to put in some effort and learn.
    Did you actually read the OPs posts? He's full of it, a snake-oil salesman in the making. Probably sells magic bracelets now.

    Yes, I read the references on that guy he was trying to duplicate, with "pyramid power" and crystals and all that, as well as believing inserting rods into his body would give him immortality (he's dead now). However, there's a bit of truth to it as well in that the brain really does give off electrical signals. Whatever reason people pick up on for trying to learn something new, even if it's dead wrong, can still be a good thing.

    True, your brain is full of electrical impulses and maybe one day someone not named Shuk.u.fuk.u will tap into what it all means.
    Either way the OP was an idiot who must of took us all for fools.

    Jeez, he was a high school student with no electrical experience. Replies that warned him about the complexity were good, as he could adjust his goals accordingly. However, just making fun of him and calling him ignorant without adding anything was kind of...I don't know, just not very helpful in adding value to this site. Just my opinion.

    Basically (last post, I'm almost spamming here), I think we should turn this thread into an EEG hacking thread.
    For instance, here's one site on the subject:

    Guess he started in kindergarten, he never did post his schematics.

    Opps my mistake, he offered us a scematic whatever that is.

    Did you join just to flog your site? Why not start a new thread?

    Blueroom, you've got a site with a few kits for sale. People come to this site asking questions, and your posting negative comments with your site at the bottom of your posts. If you simply took note of the interest, and maybe did a little project here and there on it, you could turn around and add an EEG kit to your site, then post something along the lines of "Hey, I have a kit to help with that, here's the link". You'd make more money that way.

    Sorry, no, that wasn't my site. Funny thought though.

    Why would I add an EEG kit to my site? They're easy enough to build just follow the National Semiconductor data sheet for their instrumentation amplifier. The only kids building EEGs seem to be all located in India, I fear they're actually planning on using them on patients! Besides I design PIC kits.

    My negative comments are often designed to make the OP think about what they're doing and why they're doing it. I've literally read thousands of posts from several forums and it can be like pulling teeth to extract information out of some posters. I discourage poor toadies who'd rather stick a fork in a toaster than learn ohms law, or anyone from the overunity / tinfoil hat crowd. The UPS types are also almost 100% third world folks and I do feel for them and try to discourage them wasting what little money thay have on an endeavor that'll cost them much more than a commercial UPS and won't damage their electronics or burn their house down.

    The forums have crazies that come and go, read the old mstecha or walters threads. Or any of the HHO types that appear and disappear whenever you explain why it cannot possibly work.

    Oh yeah? Well for your information it wasn't a fork, it was a butter knife. It was summer of '59 and I was nine years old. The toaster was an old Proctor Silex and to this day I have not forgotten the lesson learned. When I regained whatever composure a 9 year old can have I placed the plastic cover over the still hot toaster which promptly stuck to it. Just keep in mind it was a butter knife as only an idiot would use a fork! So there! :)
