A helmet that harnesses the power of mind-reading

Emotiv Epoc Early Prototype by IDEO

San Francisco based Emotiv Systems merges neuroengineering, 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 like device that measures electrical activity in the brain. Through the use of non-invasive sensors, the Emotiv EPOC measures a wide range of thoughts and emotions.
