What do we do?
Crux fosters leadership, initiative, teamwork, and creativity. Our club focuses on planning and developing our own Brain Computer Interface (BCI), which is a direct connection between the brain and an external device. Essentially, it records brain [signals (input) and translates them to the external device in order to perform a specific function (output). In simpler terms, using BCI, you can control things with your mind! For example, last year a team developed a car that moved based on the user thinking of a direction!
Coordinating the BCI project is a team effort; however, if you're more interested in the administrative side, our board is also an integral part of Crux. Our board focuses on education about neurotech, promoting the club, fostering a community, and facilitating and overseeing the BC project to ensure everything runs smoothly
