ThinkGearNET Library

mindset I have written and posted a new library that allows .NET developers to easily connect to and use the Neurosky MindSet headset from any .NET application.  You can find the source code and a binary of the library at CodePlex.  Usage is very simple and may seem familiar to those that have used my .NET Wiimote LIbrary; set a reference to the library and you can connect to a headset as follows:

private ThinkGearWrapper _thinkGearWrapper = new ThinkGearWrapper();

private void Connect()  
{
    _thinkGearWrapper = new ThinkGearWrapper();

    // setup the event
    _thinkGearWrapper.ThinkGearChanged += _thinkGearWrapper_ThinkGearChanged;

    // connect to the device on the specified COM port at 57600 baud
    _thinkGearWrapper.Connect("COM4", 57600, true);
}

void _thinkGearWrapper_ThinkGearChanged(object sender, ThinkGearChangedEventArgs e)  
{
    // write out one of the many properties
    Debug.WriteLine("Attention: " + e.ThinkGearState.Attention;
}

The download includes a test application with source code that shows how to use the library in any .NET application.  You can see a more advanced usage example by taking a look at my MindBlaster article or reading through its source code.
