Imagine a world where you could control everything with your mere thoughts. Yeah,it’s possible!! NextMind has made it possible for its users at CES 2020, where you can control your digital world situation with your thoughts.
The NextMind Dev Kit is a mind-blowing product that has made a hype at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2020 and won accolades as well as awards.
Dev Kit is a first real-time ‘brain-sensing’ BCI wearable that will probably be the world’s first hands-free brain-computer interface for real-time interaction. The smallest, discreet, and comfortable design product can fit with any digital interface, unlocking the potential of direct brain command to any environment.
What is NextMind?
Founded by Sid Kouider, a professor of neuroscience, NextMind is a team of very talented neuro-engineers dedicated to the future of neurotechnologies. It’s a Paris-based brain-computer interface (BCI) startup, who intends to create a telepathic link between humans and technology. NextMind is a resultant of perfect blend of neuroscientists, machine learning, and hardware engineers, developers, and designers.
What NextMind Dev Kit is and How it Works?
A unique and lightweight wearable Dev Kit is a brain-computer interface that will let you control anything and everything in your digital world by using just your thoughts. It’s a whole new way of interacting where the brain is directly connected to VR or AR environments. It bypasses the physical limitations and creates a fully immersive experience.
Few of the below features Dev Kit has made it stand out different from others:
The device is fully portable and has a clip-on system that helps it get connected to either a headband, cap, or an AR/VR headset. It also has high-quality sensors, long battery life, and use AI-based algorithms that translate neutral organic activities into digital commands.
With the help of the AR/VR headset, Dev Kit reads the electrical brain signals from the user’s visual cortex. It uses machine learning algorithms and translates that output in direct digital commands in real-time. And all of this is happening without using hands at all. This tech breakthrough allows users to perform actions and navigate without traditional controllers with virtual or augmented environments.
It can also be used as a brain-sensing device for instant game controls as It is provided with building blocks, tutorials, and demo applications to make engaging and great gaming experience.
Priced at $399, Dev Kit will be available in the market from Q2 2020. To be enlisted in the pre-order wishlist, visit the page and enroll yourselves.
