Battle of Wits | Hackathon Project

Battle of Wits is a real world fighting simulation game that allows for two players to duel each other using not only their bodies, but also their minds.

The Hack incorporates both the MUSE headset and Myo armband hardware allowing for our application to track and record all brain waves as well as arm movements of each of the two players. After running this live data through a number of algorithms our application can determine whether you plan to attack your opponent or to take the defensive. Only a strategic combination of attack and defense will lead a player to victory.

All technologies of this project were completely new to each member of the team. None of us had prior experience with either piece of hardware, Android development, or NoSQL type databases (Firebase) but with a combination of great team work and almost no sleep we managed to pull through a create something awesome.
