Brain training for realEmotiv Systems, the pioneer in brain computer interface technology, has revealed the Emotiv EPOC, a neuroheadset that allows players to control gameplay with their thoughts, expressions and emotions.
The company unveiled the new device, in its final consumer form factor, during a live interactive demonstration at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
The Emotiv EPOC is the first high-fidelity brain computer interface (BCI) device for the video gaming market and will be available to consumers via Emotiv’s Web site and through selected retailers in late 2008 for a recommended retail price of $299.
The neuroheadset is a lightweight, sleek and easy-to-use wireless device, featuring sensors that detect conscious thoughts, expressions and non-conscious emotions based on electrical signals around the brain. Emotiv’s technology processes these signals, enabling players to control their in-game character’s expressions or actions and influence gameplay using their thoughts, expressions and emotions.
