Abstract: In this article we present the design of an EEG headset together with the context and vision that motivated us to undertake the described design work. There is a variety of potential advantages and potential difficulties associated with neurofeedback therapy. Both are analyzed informally and we argue in favour of a change in perspective, moving away from treatment of illness towards prevention and giving the user an active and responsible role. To structure the discussion we will deploy the closed loop diagram. We identify elements from the world of gaming that will have added value over a pure training approach, notably elements that improve enjoyment and motivation. We describe several of the design steps of the headset that has been designed to achieve enjoyable neurofeedback therapy in the home environment and conclude with an evaluation of this headset.
