Flashing Goggles

These goggles are meant to influence brainwave frequency through sensory stimulation. The goggles flash LEDs at the user's closed eyes and play tones at varying matching frequencies. The theory behind this is that the brainwaves occur at different frequencies depending on mental arousal, and through the stimulation of sight and sound, the glasses can affect the user's mental state. Although I did not find that the goggles caused significant changes to my state of mind, they did make me see a variety of very vivid geometric patterns. This was built based on a Make Magazine article.
