The NextMind First Steps app is the quickest way to experience direct brain command.
Step 1: Connect the Sensor
Launch the NextMind First Steps app.
A dialog box will prompt you to connect the NextMind Sensor.
Note: MacOSX users will have an extra step in the NextMind First Steps app in order to pair the Sensor within the app.
Step 2: Adjust the Sensor
Once connected, you will be guided in the Headset assembly. Then you will see a diagram of the NextMind Sensor electrodes to adjust them for a good quality signal. Try to make sure that most of the dots are green.
Step 3: Calibrate
Once the Sensor is properly connected, you will be asked to calibrate the device. Follow the on-screen instructions.
The calibration requires you to focus on an object for a period of time (around 30s).
Upon completion, the NextMind Engine will provide you with a score between 1 (weak) and 5 (excellent). If you score is too low, you may need to repeat the calibration step in order for the app to let you move on to the real-time experience.
Step 4: Control
The experience is about to begin. You can now select the desired app and enjoy!
