  • OpenBCI — OpenBCI is a low-cost, programmable, open-source EEG platform that gives anybody with computer access to their brain waves. Their vision is to realize the potential of the open-source movement to accelerate innovation in brain science through collaborative hardware and software development. Behind the many lines of code and circuit diagrams,OpenBCI has a growing community of scientists, engineers, designers, makers, and a whole bunch of other people who are interested in furthering our understanding of the brain. We feel that the biggest challenges in understanding what makes us who we are cannot be solved by a company, an institution, or even an entire field of science. Rather, we believe these discoveries will be made through an open forum of shared knowledge and concerted effort by people from many different disciplines. Today, the leading brain-computer interface (BCI) companies distribute fixed devices with limited or closed access to the algorithms that translate raw EEG signals to meaningful data. These devices are powerful and effective for application development but not ideal for R&D requiring adjustable hardware setups and direct control over the signal processing techniques. OpenBCI is fully accessible and powered by an open-source community of hardware and software builders, making it easy for creators of any skill level and ideal for researchers who haven’t yet settled on the perfect system design. The OpenBCI platform is intended to serve as a malleable starting point in the rapidly growing field of brain-computer interfacing.

  • Analog — Analog is the world’s first layer-0, Omni-chain platform that leverages proof-of-time (PoT) to validate time data (events). With PoT, all nodes have a fair chance of being selected to validate time data and participate in the consensus process on the Timechain (an ordered sequence of immutable verified time data). This contrasts with proof-of-work(PoW)-powered networks that require computationally-intensive resources to mine blocks or proof-of-stake (PoS)-enabled networks where nodes must stake enough coins. The Analog network is the first realistic attempt in helping the world to move from a “timeless mess” to a “time-driven” environment via PoT consensus. Besides solving the problem of verifiability of time data, the Analog network also prioritizes interoperability. It establishes a radically decentralized, secure, and trustless layer-0 where multiple networks like Bitcoin and Ethereum can anchor their transactions. Most importantly, the Analog Timegraph leverages zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs) to create a validated pipeline of time data that businesses can privately leverage to power the next generation of time-dependent applications. Unlike other Blockchain application programming interface (API) models that involve the use of third-party oracles, Analog’s Timegraph API allows data providers to become their own oracles on the Timechain. This creates an entirely new marketplace of time data that is set to power the next generation of decentralized applications (DApps).
