If the beds were in a separate lab room, I wouldn't have a problem.
But the beds are in the middle of the space and it forces other
members to endure snoring and the such.<br>
Why don't you substitute the "Photo Lab" for the "Nuerosky Lab"?<br>

This is an absurd thing to say about the dreamteam project. What are you
accusing Kevin of being afriad of exactly? Do you think he sleeps at
Noisebridge or something? Do you actually think that is his motivation
for reverse engineering the neurosky protocol? Do you know who you're
replying to? (I know you've met Kevin AFK but I can't imagine you'd say
this to him.)
<pre wrap="">Noisebridge had a problem with people sleeping in the space, and
using it as their residence.
The most powerful tool we had was the ability to catch people
sleeping and point out that they had grossly misunderstood the
purpose of noisebridge, and ask them to leave. Asking someone to
leave when they are falling asleep in your hackerspace is a great
way to impress upon them not to do it again, and to respect the
We've been doing that since day 1. It works to varying degrees. Another
thing we've been doing since day one is talking about having napping
pods. There are mailing list posts about wanting to do this dating back
I think it is much easier to notice someone overusing the hackerstackers
than sleeping elsewhere in the space.
<pre wrap="">So then one person who thought it would HELP the situation to build
beds in the space (does anyone agree?) teams up with a person who
enjoys building stuff no matter what it is, and noisebridge has bunk
I assume you're saying I'm that one person, but I'm not sure who you're
saying enjoys building stuff no matter what it is. At least a half dozen
people helped build the HSNPs, after we discussed it at the two general
meetings prior to beginning construction.
<pre wrap="">Now when we see people sleeping in the space like it's their home,
we don't bother to say anything because they'll just point to the

We are currently using an RF Neurosky Mindwave that runs on the
I call it black box because the device uses proprietary algorithms to
give an "e-sense meditation" and "e-sense attention" metric once per
second. It also spits out a "power bin" measure for 7 bins between
0-40hz once per second. The frequency domain analysis is also hidden in
On the bright side, we see something like 512 raw data measures per
second (as 2 byte integers between 0-65535). As well as a signal quality
metric once per second and a blink event can also be recorded in the
Essentially, we are always looking for new devices to prototype.
