The Emotiv EPOC Headset

In technology & innovatons on December 28, 2010 at 4:29 am

The Emotiv EPOC headset is the most advanced mass-produced consumer-grade EEG headset on the market. It has 14 electrodes (as opposed to NeuroSky’s single-electrode and OCZ’s three-electrode headsets) and it can also detect head movement using a built-in gyroscope. The EPOC uses its sensors to detect changes in electrical activity using EEG monitoring techniques that let it detect facial gestures and estimate roughly relative mood states.
