I've spent the past week and a half telling the PhD students that I'm teaching that today they'll be given some brain-computer interface training. I'm not teaching that, so I assumed that whoever was teaching it would tell the students the details. They didn't, however, so yesterday there was a flurry of emails asking who was teaching BCI and why everyone in BCI denied all knowledge of it.

It turned out that it wasn't in BCI, it was in robotics. During planning, we'd started off talking about BCI in general then went on to discussing giving the students Vicon tracking system training. I know nothing about the Vicon tracking system and it didn't occur to me that it wasn't BCI. It seems, however, that it's some kind of motion-capture technology that people in robotics use to, er, track motion or something.

Hmm, come to think of it, I do recall a few weeks ago wondering why they were doing BCI training in a robotics lab...
