Advanced electronics

Insight uses advanced electronics that are optimized to produce clean, robust signals during everyday use.

It features 4.0 LE Bluetooth Wireless connection and 9-axis inertial sensors, enabling additional features and reduction in EEG signal noise. An internal Lithium Polymer battery provides 4 hours of minimum run time.

New sensor technology

Insight uses a proprietary polymer sensor that offers great electrical conductivity with the convenience of a dry sensor. A new kind of hydrophilic polymer biosensor system eliminates the need for extensive preparation and conductive materials like gels or saline solution, by absorbing moisture from the environment.

9-axis inertial sensors

Emotiv's brainwear™ incorporates 9-axis inertial sensors, enabling additional features. Sensors include 3-axis gyroscope (roll, pitch, yaw), 3-axis accelerometer (vertical, lateral, longitudinal acceleration), and 3-axis magnetometer (absolute change in position and orientation).

Emotiv Insight's API and SDK for developers and researchers includes gyro, mouse, and full head motion detection system linked to control outputs for various applications such as short term full-space head tracking, camera and motion control for navigation and control in real and virtual environments, automatic recognition of gestures - nod YES, head shake NO, shrug and others - and much more!

Insight extender

Insight extender is an external rechargeable battery pack that offers more than 12 additional hours of use in mobile mode or can be powered continuously when plugged into your PC USB port.

We don't recommend charging the headsets while in use, so this is a great addition.
