Adastra & Brainarium

There are two new applications taking advantage of OpenViBE I’d like to point out. Adastra is a .NET framework developed by Anton Andreev. It natively connects with the OpenViBE designer through VRPN. It is also able to kindly close the designer when a scenario is finished. This framework can be used as the basis of more complex applications, kind of the ones that we released based on Ogre. Whatever external .NET application willing to communicate with OpenViBE could consider Adastra as a possible way of doing it. I hope this enables new users to create their own applications based on OpenViBE more easily.

The other application I want to point out is Romain Grandchamp and colleagues Brainarium. This tool uses OpenViBE to process the brain activity of a user and provides him with feedback in a portable planetarium display. Kind of ultimate neurofeedback ? I haven’t had the opportunity to try this yet (still it is shown in Toulouse, France) but I’d really love to have this opportunity as this mixes my two areas of expertise that is Brain Computer Interfaces and Immersive Virtual Reality. The implementation details and costs are outlined on Romain’s site.
