Emotiv sees an update

Emotiv headsetRemember that the Emotiv headset we covered last year? This is a unique controller spirit that has enabled carriers actually control the actions on the screen simply by using the power of the spirit, but a year ago, the prototype could not do as much as what was shown at GDC this year. This update Emotiv helmet is now even more capable of interpreting the interaction of neurons in the brain to take over the electrical activity of the brain, while sending signals to a computer wirelessly. This makes it a snap users to manipulate a game (headshots imagine how all the time with perfect precision in the Counter Strike) in a virtual environment naturally and intuitively.

According to Tan Le, president of the US / Australian firm Emotiv, "Emotiv is a neuro-engineering firm and we have created a brain computer interface that reads electrical impulses in the brain and translates them into commands a video game is able to accept and control the dynamic game. "This is the first headset that does not require a large net of electrodes, or a technician to calibrate or operate and do not require gel on the scalp. It does not cost tens of thousands of dollars. "

In addition to reading your actions, it can also read the emotions of players and the translation that people around you in the virtual world. For example, if you laugh gleefully of the opponent after completing his takeoff, your virtual boyfriend will actually give you a good rubdown record to be relentless. Virtual nagging for $ 299? Sounds pretty interesting. At the time of going to press, Emotiv can detect more than 30 different expressions, emotions and actions.

Characteristics of Emotiv include:

  • Sensors respond to electrical impulses behind the different thoughts, allowing a user to influence the brain directly gameplay
  • Conscious thoughts, facial expressions, and non-conscious emotions can all be detected
  • Gyroscope cursor allows a camera or to be controlled by head movements
  • The headset uses Wi-Fi to connect to a computer
