Contributory Info: Extensions of the Human Brain
“Based on the latest developments in neurotechnology, the Emotiv EPOC is a revolutionary, new personal interface for human computer interaction.”
So says Emotiv’s homepage, with several editions of headsets available for purchase, from the Developer Edition to the Research Edition to the Lite Edition, this headset employs brain-mapping to allow a user to control a computer with their thoughts. Much like a voice-recognition system, this product is tailored to a person’s individual brainwaves and will respond to commands produced by thought.
According to the Emotiv website, the Emotive EPOC headset has the ability to translate emotions into color, music, and art, and features games created specifically for game play with the headset. Emotive can also be connected to current PC games for an entirely new gaming experience.
