intendix brain computer interface


the austrian company g.tec guger technologies is preparing to launch the first brain-computer interface
intendix. the system utilizes a electrical cap worn on the user’s head to capture brainwaves. these
brainwaves are then transferred to a computer and used to interact with a software program. the project
was been in the works for a number of years and will soon be offered to average consumers. the software
is adaptable and open allowing users to program their own ideas uses the system. the science behind
intendix uses visually evoked EEG potentials to detect options on the screen. the user thinks of these
triggers and an action is executed accordingly. forget the potential of voice activated computing, now
all you have to do is think it. the system is already being used for writing and playing advanced video games.
