MuseSDK 3.0.1 Released!

One of the main new features is that it is a one-click install. There is no need to install additional libraries to make muse-player work.
The other big update is that we have included additional algorithms in muse-io:
[B]Band Power Session Scores[/B] - Session scores gives values between 0 and 1 by comparing the user’s current band power value to an average of their recent historical values of that same band. For example, if the user’s historical alpha power has been between 0.2 and 0.4, and their current alpha power is 0.3, then their session score will be 0.5 since 0.3 is halfway between 0.2 and 0.4.
[B]Concentration and Mellowness (Experimental)[/B] [SIZE=13px] These are high level values that can be used in applications where you don’t care about building your own algorithms and want to use something that will work out of the box.
Note that it will take approximately 1 minute with Muse on the head before these values will start producing something relevant.
This is based on gamma, but with additional processing to make it more reflective of the user’s experience.[/SIZE]
This value goes up by focusing on something particular, thinking about something with intensity[SIZE=13px], waiting in expectation for something to happen, trying to solve a problem, or working your intellectual mind. [/SIZE]
Warning: If you tense up your muscles, it can get confuse this measure in that this value may go up.
This is based on alpha, but with additional processing to make it more reflective of the user’s experience.
This value goes up when you are relaxing, letting go of judgement, letting go of trying to control things, letting go of attachment to outcome, not thinking about anything with a goal. You are not engaged in strenuous mental processing but still alert to your senses. Being without an active task, but alert. A ready waiting state.
