First Dream with Modified MindWave
First dream captured with modified NeuroSky MindWave. Anyone familiar with the MindWave knows its design makes sleeping with it on nearly impossible. I took mine apart and remounted the boards, contacts and battery (crudely) in a elastic headband. Now it is possible to sleep with it on.

Thought I’d do the process in bullet form. To be used in conjunction with the attached pics. Unfortunately I didn’t take step by step pics but it is really pretty simple. If I forgot anything feel free to ask.

  • Remove all the stickers from the mind wave including the large circular one that says NeuroSky MindWave. They just peel off.
  • Unscrew everything
  • The blue wires Going to the forehead sensor can be carefully pried out of the sides.
  • Gently remove the boards and refer to pics for wiring scheme. These wires/connections are fragile!
  • Buy a battery holder or cut away the original one and add wires to be able to mount it in a more comfortable position.
  • Adapt or replace the forehead sensor
  • Mount into headband as suits your needs.
  • Sleep, Dream, Be Amazed
