Brain-Controlled Helicopter

Puzzlebox Orbit: is an educational toy that combines a brain-controlled helicopter blending science, education, and open source.

The Puzzlebox Orbit is operated via a NeuroSky EEG headset plus either a mobile device or the dedicated Puzzlebox Pyramid remote. Users can fly the Orbit through focused concentration or by maintaining a state of mental relaxation. What makes the Puzzlebox Orbit truly unique however is the open release of all source code, hardware schematics, 3D models, and step-by-step building instructions which are published freely online.

Puzzlebox Orbit features a unique spherical design that protects helicopter blades from unintended impact with objects such as walls and ceilings, while lending a pleasantly technical aesthetic.

The Kickstarter

After two years of development and a Guinness World Record (in collaboration with NeuroSky), Puzzlebox has completed funding on its first consumer hardware product via Kickstarter.

Puzzlebox is building and selling a MindWave and MindWave Mobile compatible helicopter. They will sell finished, working, brain-controlled helicopters AND release guides and software for taking them apart to rebuild or customize. Puzzlebox publishes lessons on how mind-controlled devices actually work and how infrared signals steer the aircraft. The hypothesis is that this form of cooperation can succeed commercially while aiding the pursuit of science and education.

Puzzlebox and NeuroSky’s overall goal with this project is to explore an Open  approach to Brain-Computer Interface (BCI ) technology. Advances at the cutting edge are waiting to find their way to the public and this project is our latest contribution.
