Conduct EEG Research

Conduct research with the Emotiv EEG neuroheadset and join the Researcher Community by licensing an Emotiv Software Development Kit (SDK).  The Emotiv SDK includes an Emotiv EEG system - a high resolution, multi-channel, wireless neuroheadset and our proprietary software toolkit that exposes our APIs and detection libraries.

Licensing Options

The Research Edition SDK is a single user license for independent researchers (individuals, companies or incorporated entities that had a turnover less than US$100,000 in their last fiscal year), wishing to conduct EEG research leveraging the Emotiv EPOC technology. The license is registered to the individual and is not transferable. The resulting applications, whether free or commercial will be distributed exclusively through our online application store.

The Enterprise Plus Edition SDK is a single user development license designed for enterprises (companies or incorporated entities that had a turnover in excess of US$100,000 in their last fiscal year) that wish to conduct EEG research leveraging the Emotiv EPOC technology. Additional headsets for testing and deployment can be purchased for $750/unit. 

Educational/Research Institutes/Multiple User License
The Education Edition SDK is designed for academic and educational institutes undertaking experimental or developmental non-commercial research where no direct financial benefit is being derived from the results of such activities. The license is to the department within the Institute that made the purchase and can be used by other members of staff within that department for teaching/research purposes. Additional headsets can be purchased for $750/unit.
