Riding the Brain-Wave: How Developing with NeuroSky's Brain-Computer Interface Changes the Way You Experience Your Brain
When: Tuesday, April 17th, 6:00pm to 8:30pm
Where: Tech Hub, TechHub @ Campus
4-5 Bonhill Street
London EC2A 4BX, UK
Description: Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) Technology promises to revolutionize interactions with mobile devices by enhancing interactivity, increasing the mental benefits of game play, allowing machines to adapt to the players’ mental states, and using insight into the brain for personal evolution.
NeuroSky is the leader in mass market Brain-Computer Interface technology. Their ThinkGear technology has been an award winning and financial success in the toy industry and is being leveraged by top universities like Stanford, taking neuroscience out of the lab and into the hands of the public. Now, NeuroSky is turning its sites on the mobile market. The new MindWave Mobile headset uses Bluetooth to connect to iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as PC and MAC.
NeuroSky works with partners ranging from independent developers to fortune 500 companies. Brainwave technology introduces opportunities to revolutionize most existing industries and also create new markets.
Opportunities for applications include: Simulating telekinesis, bringing mental states into game play, mental tracking, stress relief, meditation, mental fitness, content stimulus and brain response, quantified self, awareness, cognitive load, telecommuting, efficiency, EEG algorithm development, mental gamification, etc.
Come learn more about this amazing technology and how it is changing the way we know our brains.
After attending the Gadget Show Live conference, NeuroSky is hosting a casual open development event in London to demonstrate the technology. Refreshments will be provided.

NeuroSky, Inc. is the leader in Brain-Computer Interface technologies for consumer product application. Founded in 2004 and headquartered in San Jose, CA, NeuroSky works with industry partners, developers, and with academic and research institutions, to provide innovative products and solutions across a wide range of areas. NeuroSky currently distributes their brainwave reading devices to USA, EU, Japan, China and Korea.
Grounded in more than 60 years of use in the medical community, NeuroSky has taken proven EEG (electroencephalograph) technology, and evolved it for application to the mass market by making it more user-friendly and cost-effective. Technological innovations include significant advancements in electrical noise reduction, dry-sensor development (rather than requiring a wet conductive gel), substantial “cost engineering” (reducing the price), and enabling the wearer to use it outside of a lab (without the assistance of a doctor). www.neurosky.com
*NeuroSky’s BCI ThinkGear chip is most well known for its use in Mattel’s extremely successful Mindflex and the Star Wars Force Trainer by Uncle Milton. The Mindflex was recently awarded TIME Magazines "All Time Best Toys", and the NEW Mindflex Dual won the "Best of 2012" Popular Science Award.
