EPOC Features

Based on the latest developments in neuro-technology, Emotiv presents a revolutionary personal interface for human computer interaction. Emotiv EPOC is a high resolution, multi-channel, wireless neuroheadset. The EPOC uses a set of 14 sensors plus 2 references to tune into electric signals produced by the brain to detect the user’s thoughts, feelings and expressions in real time. The EPOC connects wirelessly to PCs running Windows or MAC OS X.

Experience the fantasy of controlling and influencing the virtual environment with your mind. Access applications and play games developed specifically for the EPOC, or use the EmoKey to connect to current PC games and experience them in a completely new way.

Detection Suites 

The detection suites that are incorporated into the Emotiv EPOC are: 

Expressiv™ Suite

The Expressiv suite uses the signals measured by the neuroheadset to interpret player facial expressions in real-time. It provides a natural enhancement to game interaction by allowing game characters to come to life. When a user smiles, their avatar can mimic the expression even before they are aware of their own feelings. Artificial intelligence can now respond to users naturally, in ways only humans have been able to until now.

Affectiv™ Suite

The Affectiv suite monitors player emotional states in real-time. It provides an extra dimension in game interaction by allowing the game to respond to a user's emotions. Characters can transform in response to the user's feeling. Music, scene lighting and effects can be tailored to heighten the experience for the user in real-time. The Affectiv suite can be used to monitor user state of mind and allow developers to adjust difficulty to suit each situation.

Cognitiv™ Suite

The Cognitiv suite reads and interprets a user's conscious thoughts and intent. Users can manipulate virtual objects with only the power of their thought! For the first time, the fantasy of magic and supernatural power can be experienced. 

The limited edition EPOC is available World Wide. Users will have access to the Emotiv App Store and innovative apps and games developed exclusively for EPOC.
