My friend here!

I hope to achieve more function in BCI2000. Can I send message to mobile phone via BCI2000? Is it possible to achieve this function in the BCI2000 system? Where to start if I want to do this function?

Could feel free to give some sugestion?

This is certainly something that could be done with a little work. I modified the P300 speller to send messages to Twitter, and the same concept would work here. What you need to do is figure out the transport system you will use to send the messages. For example, it is possible to send text messages over email, depending on the carrier. See this page for more info: ... de=details

Then, you would need to interface BCI2000 with an external emailer. Once choice would be to call a Python program from BCI2000, which has a very simple SMTP interface.

So, your user would first need to type a message, then select "SEND" (which you will program into the P300 speller), then have them select a phone number. This would probably be a pretty lengthy process, but it would work. I actually DID this and tested it last year, but no longer have the code :-) (I need to leave SOMETHING for you to do anyway :-)).

Let me know if this makes sense, and if you have other questions.
