A Brain Computer Interface, sometimes called a direct neural interface or a brain-machine interface, is a direct communication between a brain and an external device, such as computer

EEG-Brain Wave Sensors –Hardware Development Tools

MindWave Mobile


Brainwave Starter Kit is a basic introduction to neuroscience and brainwave technology. Simply slip on the headset and see your brainwaves displayed on screen in the colorful Brainwave Visualizer. Watch how your attention and relaxation levels change in real time as you listen to your favorite music.

Epoc  Neuro Headset


The Emotiv EPOC is a high resolution, neuro-signal acquisition and processing wireless neuroheadset.  It uses a set of sensors to tune into electric signals produced by the brain to detect player thoughts, feelings and expressions and connects wirelessly to most PCs.




The brain sensing headband helps you do more with your mind by providing exercises designed to manage stress and settle your mind.



Enobio® is a wearable and wireless electrophysiology sensor system for the recording of EEG


How can Enobio help you?

  • Signals you can trust
  • Quality EEG made easy
  • Advanced development tools
  • Integrated with an intuitive user application


Software Development Tools for Brain Computer Interface




BCI2000 is a general-purpose system for brain-computer interface (BCI) research. It can also be used for data acquisition, stimulus presentation, and brain monitoring applications.The BCI2000 system is available for free for non-profit research and educational purposes. BCI2000 supports all major EEG amplifiers, includes signal processing routines and experimental paradigms. But BCI2000 doesn’t only acquire and analyze your EEG signals; it also provides highly configurable auditory/visual stimulation and inputs from other devices such as joysticks, keyboards and much more with reliable synchronization.

The design of BCI2000 is modular. Each module works as an independent program allowing a high degree of customization. A user interface is provided to combine the different modules to create a complete fully customized Brain Computer Interface application. And last but not least it provides quick and reliable online technical support.

Open Vibe


Open ViBE is a free and open source software platform for designing, testing and using brain computer interfaces that addresses every type of user. It doesn’t matter whether you are an expert in brain physiology or you’ve never heard of it before, whether you are a top programmer or you can’t even program your video recorder, Open ViBe provides tools and applications for everybody.

The platform consists of a set of software modules that can be easily integrated, including an easy-to-use graphical user interface for non-programmers. Software modules deal with EEG acquisition (many EEG measuring devices including Enobio are integrated), preprocessing and visualization of cerebral activity. You can use the ones available or create new ones specially tailored to your needs.

All in one: Open ViBE includes a large number of useful tools to visualize cerebral activity and sample scenarios for Brain Computer Interface or neuro-feedback applications. It has been designed to be easily integrated with high level applications such as virtual reality acting as an external peripheral device for any kind of real or virtual environment.




AsTeRICS is a free and Open-Source construction set for assistive technologies (AT). It allows the creation of flexible solutions for people with disabilities using a large set of sensors and actuators.

AsTeRICS is an ongoing EU-funded project that brings together companies, foundations and universities with a single purpose: the development of flexible adaptable platforms to quickly develop AT applications.

Its modular architecture is based on plugins, which act as blocks with a specific functionality that can be interconnected within an easy-to-use graphical interface for non-programmers, which in turn allows the customization of the plugins themselves. There are already more than a hundred available plugins that, depending on the task, have been divided into :

  • Sensors:  for interfacing with the user, buttons, actuators, webcams, microphones, and many more. Of course commercial EEG and biological sensors have been integrated including Enobio 2G.
  • Processors: In charge of treating, processing and extracting useful information out of its inputs. EEG analysis plugins have been integrated including frequency analysis and SSVEP-based BCI.
  • Actuators:  for interfacing with the ‘outside’ world, music players, on screen information display, biosignal visualizers, TV remote controls, your computer mouse and much more!

The core of the application is provided open source and it will also be possible to buy an embedded hardware platform. You will be able to use more than a hundred currently provided plugins or easily create new ones.

Interconnect sensors, processors and actuators and in minutes you’ll be ready to enjoy your AT application!
