Mind the Chair is an interactive installation which focuses on giving a real time audio/visual representation of the activity of our brain, and to show how it can be possible to control it. In fact, the installation allows to visualize the level of concentration of a person, through an audio/visual answer (LED lights and sounds generation/manipulation). While using the headset it is easy to understand how it is possible to 'control' our brain and therefore to intervene on our level of concentration, to modify light intensity or filtering the sound.

How it works:
a person sits and wear the headset which scan the brain activity. This value is used to guide the dimmer od the led lights (through Arduino) and to manipulate audio.

About the visual part: despite it is not necessary, it is for sure valorizing (aesthetically speaking) to install the project in a close and not too bright room.

About the video: the video is referring to the first version of the the project which not included audio manipulation. Generation of sounds was introduced in a later version of the project, tath is actually the one which is getting submitted.
