Neuroscience tech company Emotiv has been hyping their latest consumer product, the EPOC, over the past few months. The Emotiv EPOC is a brain-computer interface that looks like something straight out of a Sci-Fi movie.
The EPOC headset reads EEGs (Electroencephalography) to allow the wearer to (attempt) to control things; in particular games.
While the technology probably isn’t a slam-dunk just yet, and involves some calibration, think about the potential uses particularly for disabled folks, and a price-point that has not been previously available.
EPOC will be available for $299 later this year; you can pre-order a unit now directly from Emotiv.
