Most visual stimulators used in steady state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) based brain-computer interface (BCI) to elicit SSVEP response are set close to the BCI system limiting the portability and the applications of the system. Our aim is to develop a portable SSVEP based BCI adaptable to the change of the viewing distance of the stimulator which will allow users to operate the BCI without being restricted to a particular area. This study (1) investigates the impact of the distance between the user and the visual stimulator on the SSVEP response and (2) develops a portable visual stimulator that would adapt to change of distance. The finding suggests that a distance adaptable SSVEP based BCI is achievable by changing the intensity of visual stimulator to correspond to the change of the viewing distance. It is hoped that this work can help SSVEP BCI design and broaden its potential applications and users.
