Designing for Engaging BCI Training: A Jigsaw Puzzle
Proceedings of the 2015 Annual Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction in Play (CHI Play 2015), 2014
Brain-computer interface (BCI) technology translatesbrain activity to machine-intelligible patterns, thusserving as input “device” to computers. BCI traininggames make the process of acquiring training data forthe machine learning more engaging for the users. Inthis work, we discuss the design space for BCI traininggames based on existing literature, and a traininggame in form of a Jigsaw Puzzle. The game wastrialled with four cerebral palsy patients. All patientswere very acceptant of the involved technology, which,we argue, relates back to the concept of BCI traininggames plus the adaptations we made. On the otherhand, the data quality was unsatisfactory. Hence, infuture work both concept and implementation need tobe finetuned to achieve a balance between useracceptance and data quality.
