Connecting our minds with technology used to be limited to Sci-Fi novels and movies just a couple of decades ago. Now, with the power of Brain-Computer Interface Systems, the technology to connect mind and machine is within our grasp.
What exactly are BCI systems and what can they achieve? Let us take a closer look.
What is a Brain-Computer Interface (BCI)?
A Brain-Computer Interface, or BCI for short, is an advanced system that enables direct communication between the human mind and an external device. By using BCI systems, the brain’s electrical activity can be used to communicate with and control computers and other devices, including robotic limbs.
BCIs are a revolutionary technology, providing us with new insights into our minds, not only assisting with research and brain mapping, but also augmenting and even repairing our cognitive and sensory-motor functions. From EEGs to microelectrode arrays, the implementations of BCI technology are virtually limitless.
What can BCI systems be used for?
It’s difficult to establish the exact range of BCI applications. A technology that creates a link between a human brain and external devices can find uses in many industries, and can be used for tasks ranging from replacing lost motor functions to mind-controlled video games. A BCI system can also be used to monitor brain activity closely, providing medical professionals with important information about a person’s mental state.
Ready-made BCI kits, like the one you’ll, provide innovators with the hardware and software required for advanced mind-device communication, opening up the possibilities of BCI application without starting from scratch.
