1.- Fan Cao presents on efficiently setting up labs for EEG, EMG, neurophysiology and neuromodulation studies using the gTec configurator tool.

2.- The gTec configurator streamlines lab planning by allowing equipment selection and visualization, providing detailed equipment lists and pricing.

3.- Standard BCI lab example for ERP studies with visual/auditory response, integrating 32-channel wireless EEG and 8-channel fNIRS.

4.- Hybrid scanning example for phase synchrony study across orchestra performers, using 5 synchronized 16-channel wireless EEG devices.

5.- Neurophysiology lab example for high-density 128-channel EMG with GSR, temperature, heart rate, respiration sensors and real-time processing.

6.- Functional brain mapping/closed-loop neuromodulation lab example with parallel clinical and research systems, cortical stimulator, and channel switching.

7.- Configurator simplifies complex lab planning in minutes, provides visuals of selected items, and allows easy price adjustments for budgeting.

8.- Fan introduces the Unicorn hybrid black, a sleek 8-channel wireless EEG headset with hybrid electrodes for gel or dry recording.

9.- Unicorn has 24-bit ADC, 250Hz sampling, consistent high-quality signals comparable to research systems, and works with various software/APIs.

10.- Unicorn used worldwide by researchers, companies, artists for applications like gin-tonics, art installations, robotic painting, and fashion tech.

11.- gTec offers multiple free and paid software options for Unicorn like C++/Python APIs, MATLAB/Simulink, Unity for application development.

12.- Example shows real-time Unicorn EEG used in Unity game for moving avatar by visually focusing on flashing targets without movement.

13.- Unicorn educational kits enable class projects on EEG/BCI topics with 8 devices for 40 students in 8 five-person groups.

14.- Fan invites participants to follow gTec on social media and ask any questions. He shares the GitHub link for code examples.

15.- Christoph suggests Fan also show the medical products in the configurator - recoveriX, mindBEAGLE and cortiQ.

16.- recoveriX is for stroke rehab, includes hand and/or foot therapy with EEG and functional electrical stimulation. Configurator lists all components.

17.- mindBEAGLE is an assessment system for coma patients using EEG and vibro-tactile stimulation. Configurator provides full parts list.

18.- cortiQ is an FDA/CE certified device with flexible EEG channel count and electrode type options for clinical and research use.

19.- Christoph shows the website where participants register for the spring school and hackathon, and access the program schedule.

20.- Most hackathon teams are currently full, aiming for around 50 teams total. New registrations are waitlisted but may still get in.

21.- The gTec Discord channel linked on allows participants to interact, ask questions, and potentially change teams if needed.

22.- Onsite teams are meeting in person in places like Mexico, Poland and Canada. Online teams are grouped by compatible time zones.

23.- Examples of onsite team projects include puzzle games and adventure games. Online teams have diverse international membership.

24.- Teams should avoid spanning distant time zones like Europe and Asia due to jet lag. Europe and South America grouping works well.

25.- Spreadsheet is shown listing all currently registered hackathon participants, their team numbers, locations, emails and project focuses.
