In the Maker Shed: Trip Glasses

tripGlasses01.jpg

Hack your brain with a pair of Trip Glasses! Get comfortable, put on the glasses and headphones, close your eyes (the LEDs are bright!), and flick the power switch. Enjoy the hallucinations as you drift into deep meditation, ponder your inner world, and then come out after the 14-minute program feeling fabulous. Sound and Light Machines (SLMs) produce sound and light pulses at brain wave frequencies, which help people sleep, wake up, meditate, or experience whatever state of consciousness the machine is programmed for.

Note: this is a fully assembled commercial version of the Brain Machine Kit from creator Mitch Altman.

  1. Is anyone aware of a decent Open Source Software version of a brain machine that does video as well as audio?
    An audio only version would be acceptable but less than ideal. Combined with a projector and speakers I could share the experience with my wife.

    1. I would love to experience this to make sure it works before dropping the money on it. I don’t know anyone in my area with one to test with. I’ve seen a few things before, mostly binaural audio that was supposed to ‘do stuff’ but those never worked so I am a bit apprehensive.
