Among the many paradigms used in brain-computer interface (BCI), steady state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) offers the quickest response; however it is disadvantageous from the point of view of visual fatigue, which prevents subjects from prolonged usage of visual stimuli especially when LEDs are used. In this paper, we propose a visual stimulator using readily available RGB LEDs with clear and frosted glass, with the latter being tested for performance and qualitative user comfort using electroencephalogram (EEG) data from four subjects. Furthermore, we also compare frosted and clear stimuli for three colours Red, Green and Blue with frequency values of 7, 8, 9 and 10 Hz. The results using band-pass filtering and Fast Fourier Transform showed that 7 Hz Green clear LED stimuli gave the highest response in general, although all the subjects indicated that they were more comfortable with frosted LED stimuli.
