URGENT: Muse 2016 to Mac OS connection

Yeah,

I just bought one Muse band. I’m unable to connect either in Linux or Windows. Very disappointing. Will return my headband.

Can we connect Muse 2016 headband to MuseLab on a MacBook Pro yet without purchasing any extra software? I would like separate live readings from the headband to be fed into my computer. Looks like this has been a problem for a while. Is it fixed yet?

I just bought a Muse headband 2016 (ordered on October 25th 2016) and SURPRISE! It’s not possible to pair it to a Mac for developers. Even though most articles online say it’s possible… ha wait… that’s only with the OLD version. But that’s never mentioned anywhere. BAD surprise! Will return the headband. The Muse team hasn’t even bothered answering the last person who asked when it is going to be possible.

I returned my headband. I will buy the OpenBCI Ganglion for cheaper than this.

Hi Lisa,
Could you explain me precisely how did you succeed to connect your muse 2016 to your MAC?
Thanks a lot for your help,
Fred.

Hi Frederic,

I am currently having the same issue with connecting the Muse headset with my Mac. I was wondering if you had found a solution to connect it to a Mac without downloading Muse Monitor, or if you have to download the Muse Monitor.

Thanks in advance,
Lena

Hi Lisa,

I am currently having the same issue with connecting the Muse headset with my Mac. I was wondering if you had found a solution to connect it to a Mac without downloading Muse Monitor, or if Muse Monitor was the solution to get data from the headset. If Muse Monitor was the solution, is there anything you could possibly send me to help figure out how to stream the data to a Mac?

Thanks in advance,
Lena

Hi Lena,
Unfortunately, my solution has been to return my 2016 Headband and Ask for a 2014… I guess they will developp a decent SDK for MAC Soon. but I dont know when. Sorry to tell you that :confused: It took about 2 weeks to have the 2014.

hi there. any details on your workaround?

Hi everyone,
sorry for the delayed response…

I had to download the Muse monitor and connected via OSC connection to a Processing sketch.
I was already coding my work through Processing (https://processing.org), which happen to have an external library called OSCp5 (http://www.sojamo.de/libraries/oscp5/) which was used to receive the the values. So muse >> mobile >> mac - was my quick and dirty work around (unfortunately the mobile phone has to be a conduit for data in this case)

You can check out the example on how to send and receive data via oscP5 http://www.sojamo.de/libraries/oscp5/examples/oscP5sendReceive/oscP5sendReceive.pde

It basically requires you to connect the mobile to your mac via a net address, i.e. your mac’s IP address and port number of choice, and ensure the same values are set up in the Muse monitor.

Hope this helps!

Hey everyone,

My friend Uri and I put together a demo for using the Muse 2016 with Web Bluetooth during ng-cruise!

To run the demo:

Uri also released an npm package for using Muse as a client. You can find it here:
https://www.npmjs.com/package/muse-js

Enjoy.

I am using Max/MSP, it works well with Muse Monitor through OSC. There is an OSC-receive object in Max/MSP called “udpreceive”, you have to use set the object to the port Muse Monitor is transmitting.

Hi Alex,

Could you explain with more details what is the “web bluetooth” and what is the purpose of your python code ?

Thanks in advance,

Didier

Hi Walid,
