  1. 1. A real brainstorming!<br />Ideas to interact with our softwareusing the senses and thoughts…<br />
  2. 2. PRIMAVERA TV<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. New products (RTM?)<br />
  5. 5. Augmented Reality<br />Tomorrow<br />Today<br /><br />
  6. 6. Source of senses…<br />
  7. 7. BCI definition<br />“A brain–computer interface (BCI), sometimes called a direct neural interface or a brain–machine interface, is a direct communication pathway between a brain and an external device.” <br /><br />
  8. 8. Emotiv Systems<br />Emotiv Systems is an Australian-originelectronics company developing brain–computer interfaces based on electroencephalography (EEG) technology.<br /><br />
  9. 9. What is EEG?<br />Our mind produce various waves, and the EPOC can detect those signals; only is necessary interpret what they mean and use them to “speak” with any device.<br />The recording of electrical activity along the scalp produced by the firing of neurons within the brain.<br />
  10. 10.
  11. 11. Delta wave<br />Theta wave<br />Alpha wave<br />Beta wave<br />
  12. 12. Emotiv EPOC<br />The EPOC has 14 electrodes. It also has a two-axis gyro for measuring head rotation.<br />The headset must first be trained to recognize what kind of thought pattern equates to a certain action. It can measure four categories of inputs:<br />Conscious thoughts (Cognitiv suite)<br />12 + 1 kinds of movements <br />6 directions (left, right, up, down, forward, and "zoom") <br />6 rotations ([anti-]clockwise rotation, turn left and right, and sway backward and forward<br />plus 1 other visualization ("disappear")<br />Emotions (Affectiv suite)<br />"Excitement"<br />"Engagement/Boredom"<br />"Meditation“<br />"Frustration"<br />Facial expressions<br />Head rotation<br /><br />
  13. 13. Demo<br />
  14. 14. Innovation Wanted!<br />
  15. 15. Thanks for giving me your valuable time …and don’t forget that knowledge is not “power” unless you can share it with someone else!<br />
