It’s time to jump into a new world. g.tec brings Brain Computer Interface (BCI) system named intendiX-SOCI (Screen Overlay Control Interface) for home use this year. This system will allow people to control their PC applications like computer programs or games with the brain computer interface. It means, without using your hand, whatever you think or want to do, will automatically be done promptly in the computer.
The BCI system is quite impressive. intendix-SOCI system contains a helmet (I named it) which is made of some sort of extraordinary cloth and Steady State Visual Evoked Potential (SSVEP). Whatever you think, the helmet (below image marked 2) which has various hi-tech sensors receive Electrodes from the brain and passes the signal to Steady State Visual Evoked Potential (SSVEP) (below image marked 1).
As soon as people paying attention to a flickering item on the monitor, the brain catches the same region and responds at the same frequency. The technology is able to detect the brain activity and use it to determine which item the user considers to imply. So, people can send their commands invisibly within a program or game just by paying attention to different items on the monitor. To be noted that, the accuracy of detecting different types of brain signals by intendiX-SOCI is 98%.
This system will come anytime in 2012. g.tec is going to host the first public demonstration of the pre-release version at CeBit-2012. Booth visitors can have and enjoy the live demonstrations of intendiX-SOCI. But the question arises, how faster the system can transfer the whole process and how long time it will take? Well, to know that, we have to wait….
