Toward Natural Selection in Virtual Reality

A. Sherstyuk ; D. Vincent ; A. Treskunov. IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications  (Volume:30 ,  Issue: 2 )   Abstract Here we describe a vision of VR games that combine the best features of gaming and VR: large, persistent worlds experienced in photorealistic settings with full immersion. For example, Figure 1 illustrates a hypothetical immersive VR […]

Achieving Remote Presence using a Humanoid Robot Controlled by a NonInvasive BCI Device

A. Thobbi, R. Kadam, W. Sheng. Laboratory for Advanced Sensing, Computation and Control, Oklahoma State University, USA Abstract This paper presents a platform for „Remote Presence‟ which enables a person to be present at a remote location through the embodiment of a humanoid robot. We specifically propose the use of a humanoid robot since it will endow human like […]

NeuroPhone: Brain-Mobile Phone Interface using a Wireless EEG Headset

Matthew K. Mukerjee. Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, USA Abstract Neural signals are everywhere just like mobile phones. We propose to use neural signals to control mobile phones for hands-free, silent and effortless human-mobile interaction. Until recently, devices for detecting neural signals have been costly, bulky and fragile. We present the design, implementation and evaluation of the […]

Analysis of a commercial EEG device for the control of a robot arm

G. N. Ranky ; Biomed. Eng. Dept., New Jersey Inst. of Technol., Newark, NJ, USA Abstract A BMI using Electroencephalography (EEG) input, known as the Emotiv EPOC was tested with an external robotic arm to determine if it was suitable for control of peripherals. Within 2 weeks of training, subjects maintained or improved axial control […]

IDEO: Epoc Headset for Emotiv

A helmet that harnesses the power of mind-reading San Francisco-based Emotiv Systems merges neuro-engineering, technology, and venture capitalism to create a new human interface control system—the Emotiv EPOC™ headset. The Emotiv EPOC detects and processes real-time brain wave patterns using an EEG device that measures electrical activity in the brain. Through the use of non-invasive […]
