NeuroKey is a Windows compatible application that enables the wearer of an Emotiv EEG Headset to emulate a PC keyboard using head and facial movements, as well as pure thoughts.
While there may be many uses for NeuroKey, our primary objective was to produce an application which would open up the world of computing (and the Internet) to individuals whose physical abilities currently prevent them from doing so.
There are a number of products that offer limited computer use via an assortment of switch inputs. With NeuroKey, it is now possible to achieve the same results with nothing more than your thoughts, and the Emotiv headset.
NeuroKey supports the entire range of Emotiv headset detections, enabling it to be configured to the individual's ability. This includes eye movement, blinks, head movement and facial expressions as well as thirteen cognitive thoughts such as "Push", "Pull", "Lift" etc.
The virtual keyboard includes several special purpose keys designed to increase productivity. These include ".com" and ".net" for entering email or web address. There are also additional navigation and editing keys to simplify editing by providing single key-press "Word Left", "Word Right" and "Word Select" functionality.
The demo illustrates composing an email message, however with the full product you will be able to control any Windows application that can be use with a keyboard. We are currently implementing 'smart-app' keys which will provide unique functionality depending on the current application you are running. For example, when you are composing email, the virtual keyboard will have "Send", "CC" and ""BCC" keys. When browsing the Internet, those keys would take on a different functionality.
Compatible with the Emotiv EPOC consumer headset and SDK developer and research headsets.
Reviews gmac, 03/06/2013 17:54:29Hi. The NeuroKey demo is not supported any longer, the original developer has retired. There are a few other options for mental typing available on our web store (most are free). All of these applications work with the consumer model. If your friend is profoundly disabled (requires assistance to communicate, has little or no control over the head and facial muscles) it would be better to use the Research Edition which allows open source EEG-based BCI and communication software to be used. Please raise a support ticket to discuss your requirements further! ATANGANA MBELE Eugene Cedric, 03/04/2013 06:24:42Hi all,
please tell me, is it possible to purchase only the EPOC headset (299$) and use this app, I think my disable friend could appreciate this. I would love to make her a great surprise guys!
Please tell me more about it.

gmac, 10/24/2011 16:58:42Check this out <http://tilvus.net/About.html> Rob Glennie, 10/24/2011 14:55:44I thought this might be perfect for the disabled to control thier enviroment as opposed
to regular sip/puff interface. All that is needed to envision/decode is simple commands
to navigate a gui like maybe up, down, click etc. This would be a lot less tedius than
the scan and select from sub menus methods now in use.
