Two Bull Riders Make Up One Team
Step 1 - Users take a seat facing the center of the car
Step 2 - Users put EEG Cowboy Hat on as instructed
Step 3 - Users addressing each other, take turns saying name and city of origin
Step 4 - Users dive into a conversation of their choosing
Step 5 - Users engage with each other, the bull will move relative to their brain synchronicity, faster as your brain waves align, and slower as they diverge
Step 6 - Users dismount
Step 7 - Their (CPAB) score is a measure of distance travelled over time.
Come Pat A Bull - Compatibility Social Heat Map
When users log-in, they can activate their CBAP score through FB or 4sq API to provide geolocating of other potentially compatible companions. Aggregate CBAP scores and general analytics will be available to all users on on screen at the bGiv Space.
