BUILD YOUR OWN BCI
With our open-source code, you are able to make your own Brain Computer Interface (BCI) application that is reliable, fast and requires no training.
With our solution, one wears a headset that measures electrical brain activity. Through visually directing one’s attention at specifically designed stimulus, such as the special keyboard in the video-clip, the BCI matches the brain signals with the stimulus. This allows you to spell letter by letter with your brain. This method is fast, reliable and requires no training.
- Fast: detection in ~2 second
- Reliable: 95% accuracy
- Easy: no training necessary
- Robust: insensitive to movement artifacts
- Flexible: can combine on-screen and physical objects
Our patented BCI technology is easy to integrate with other technologies making it suitable for a range of applications that may benefit both patients and caretakers, but can also entertain a broader public, with the amazing possibilities we are developing. Check out our Labs page to get an idea of the possibilities.
We had a successful KickStarter campaign, and have decided afterwards to publish our software under an open-source license, and write tutorials how to assemble the hardware and create applications. You can find it here and this blog post explains how to work with it.
Many locked-in patients are unable to interact with their surroundings or communicate with their loved ones, as they have lost the ability to control their muscles including facial and vocal muscles. Being locked-in means that a patient is quadriplegic, and completely unable to move but mentally fully alert. Locked-in can be caused by ALS, trauma, brainstem stroke or acute muscle disorders.
For locked-in patients who dislike or are unable to use eye-tracking, our technology may provide a way to interact with their surroundings. Currently, we have a number of prototypes in the field and are working towards the availability of supported version in the near future.
