Develop applications for the Emotiv EPOC neuroheadset and join the Developer Community by licensing an Emotiv Software Development Kit (SDK).
Depending on whether you are an independent developer (individuals, companies or incorporated entities that had a turnover less than US$100,000 in their last fiscal year), educational institute or a commercial enterprise, we offer the opportunity for you to work with our APIs and detection libraries to create applications that can be controlled by your mind.
The Emotiv Software Development Kit includes a high resolution, neuro-signal acquisition and processing wireless neuroheadset and our proprietary software toolkit that exposes our APIs and detection libraries. It includes EmotivControlPanel.exe, EmotivComposer.exe, EmoKey.exe, header files and import libraries, and sample code. The EmoComposer & EmoKey is a hardware emulator that will enable you to commence immediate development for the headset. The SDK provides an effective development environment that integrates well with new and existing frameworks.
The detection suites that are incorporated into the Emotiv SDK are:
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 player smiles, their avatar can mimic the expression even before they are aware of their own feelings. Artificial intelligence can now respond to players 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 player's emotions. Characters can transform in response to the player's feeling. Music, scene lighting and effects can be tailored to heighten the experience for the player in real-time. The Affectiv suite can be used to monitor player state of mind and allow developers to adjust difficulty to suit each situation.
The Cognitiv suite reads and interprets a player's conscious thoughts and intent. Gamers can manipulate virtual objects using only the power of their thought! For the first time, the fantasy of magic and supernatural power can be experienced.
