Playful puzzles

Mücahit Gemici is an electronics engineering student who is sharing his passion for gaming with not one, but two downloadable prototypes!

To get familiar with the capabilities of the NextMind SDK,Mücahit chose to start by building a single player prototype of tic-tac-toe.

“I chose a simple and short game which you can finish in a few seconds and start again. It was easier than I thought it would be. I could even trigger animations without any code.”

Mücahit

After seeing how easy it was to use NextMind, he decided to make a more elaborate platformer game inspired by Professor X. The game begins with a short cutscene explaining that you’re alone in the school and must take care of this mission yourself. Then, you must navigate your character using keyboard controls, while puzzles and obstacles must be cleared using the power of your mind.

Instructions –

Both prototypes, are available on Windows 10. Be sure to connect the NextMind Sensor to your computer’s bluetooth and confirm that contacts are green using the First Steps application before launching the games.

Type with your mind

Linkfy is a game and software developer who shares his projects and tips on TikTok, Instagram and Youtube.

The power of neural interfaces to improve the quality of life for people of limited mobility is very promising. For this project, Linkfy challenged himself to build a typing application in less than one working day (8 hours). His goal was to create a tool that could be useful to ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) patients so they can communicate by typing with their minds.

Watch his devlog (in Spanish) to learn how he built it, or download and start typing now!
