Member Okini393939 built this stylin’ brain machine from what appears to be an old pair of sunglasses and enhanced the lenses with a mosaic-spiral look. He even thought to include basic instructions on the interior! “Close eyes, 14 minutes” – something one may grow weary of repeating to the uninitiated. – Brain machine on Flickr

The ‘brain machine’ project simulates a meditation session via sound and flashing light synched up to the frequency of a relaxing brainwave program. It’s a relatively quick and easy build using a MiniPOV kit – and it provides an experience similar to ‘mind’ machines costing hundreds of dollars. (It seems everyone who tries mine wants one of their own!)

In the Maker store:
MiniPOV kit – The foundation of the brain machine project, just reprogram the chip, add a couple 1k resistors and 1µf caps, and wire to a pair of safety (or sun)glasses – See full instructions
