World's Smallest Brain-Computer Interface Relies On Single Sensor

Whether they use theirs’ as such, most people would agree that the human brain is a highly complex and delicate organ. When you consider that all bodily functions are under the brain’s control, one would have to be braindead to disagree.                 

Be that as it may, Mind Solutions Inc. has managed to coral some of that complex brain power with what it is touting as the world's smallest brain-computer-interface (BCI). Dubbed NeuroSync, the BCI relies on a single dry sensor that accepts electrical signals coming from the user’s brain and uses them to control a smart phone or computer.

NeuroSync is worn in the ear like a hands-free cellphone audio device.

NeuroSync is worn in the ear like a Bluetooth cellphone device and receives electrical impulses from the brain through the ear canal. The device is small, light, and therefore highly mobile. The BCI supports two actions to occur on a computer or smart phone, one by concentrating (Beta) or the other by relaxing (Alpha). According to Mind Solutions, applications for BCI technology are limitless and can range from playing video games to assistive learning devices for the disabled.

Retailing for $129, NeuroSync is bundled with tutorial software. Also, there are some 100 compatible apps currently on the market, available through third party developers. Mind Solutions plans to develop new apps following the NeuroSync launch.

There you have it, the world’s smallest BCI that fits brains small and large. For more details, visit
