Motivation: The Neurosky Mindwave device allows monitoring the electrical signals generated by the brains neural activities. The easy access of this devices opens a new area of researching fields not only in the gamification and disable people but also to understand the cognitive behavior of human beings. The purpose of this study is to investigate the consistency and effectiveness level of a non-invasive consumer product BCI.
