Starburst Neuron Complete eyewire

The first Starburst Challenge neuron is done!

250+ players have advanced to EyeWire Level 2 and together submitted over 10,000 cubes to validate the extremely challenging monster starburst neuron, containing a total of 1,168 cubes.


We made two new videos to celebrate the new cell!

First, the latest starburst, which you can explore in full 3D glory in the video below. Check out the partially-complete starbursts in 3D by signing in on EyeWire.org and changing view.

Second, check out this EyeWire gameplay timelapse. 30 minutes of mapping at 800% speed yields a 4 minute neurothon. Boom!

We want to see your EyeWire creations! Make your own EyeWire gameplay videos and share them on our Facebook page or email us directly at support (at) eyewire.org — we may feature your vid! Also keep the awesome screenshots coming.

Finally, join us for a hangout with Google Science Fair this Wednesday at 3 PM ET.

Heads up that a new global competition is coming…gear up by completing the Starburst Challenge and subscribe to the EyeWire blog to be the first to know details.

See you online at EyeWire.org and as always, thanks for playing.
