BioWave v1.3 (obsolete)

The BioWave was replaced by the BioVolt.

We don't care what you think - this sensor is mind-boggling. Developed by BioControl, it captures the skin surface voltages on your head such as signals from facial muscles (EMG) and eyes (EOG) as well as some signals from the brain (EEG). View the sensor data using our BioWave software (see below). Use the BioWave with a wireless Wi-microSystem in all cases to operate conveniently without tether and ensure electrically safe operation (see disclaimer below).

Application information

Product BioWave sensor
Examples The BioWave combines perfectly with the BioBeat, BioEmo and BioFlex. Become zen and still perform.
  1. Add intensity to your musical performance by tweaking your sound through frowns, winks and other histrionics.
  2. For whole-body expression go bodysuit, capture all your joints' movements and express with all your extremities. Combine with BendMicro, BendMini and BendShort sensors from finger to toe. Add a GForce3D-6 on your feet and hands to capture kicks and punches. A Hot will keep you in check of your body temp. Top it all off with a TouchGlove on both hands to always be able to touch-control your performance, even when you're doing a handstand.
  3. Read up on Alexis Kirke's work with the BioBeat, BioEmo, BioFlex and BioWave.
Manuals Using the sensor with the Wi-microSystem not only ensures electrically safe operation (see disclaimer below) but also enables you to use the sensor without being tethered to your computer or MIDI device.
  1. User guide
The sensor includes a notch filter to reduce power grid noise (50 or 60 Hz). Note that the sensor is shipped with this power grid notch filter set to 50 Hz. It can be changed if necessary to 60 Hz by cutting the blue jumper wire on the side of the board inside the neoprene band.
