How Neuroverse's BrainStation could fix VR's biggest problem
"Wearable tech is continuing to shift beyond fitness and there's been a noticeable move to brain analysing devices through 2016.
Neuroverse's BrainStation is one such example. The company's inaugural device has been in the works since 2012, and is still to get a release. The device is set to be a kind of Fitbit for the brain, which looks to solve a host of neurological problems, such as dementia in our ageing population." Read more.
The Best Little Brain Reader Your Money Can't Buy (Yet)
"Let’s be honest: it would be really cool to have a wearable personal brain-computer interface (BCI) that would monitor your brain waves while you do all your favorite activities. Not to mention being able to operate smart phone apps using your thoughts alone. That day is closer than you think.
Meet the BrainStation—your brain interface for everyday life. The creation of a company called Neuroverse, it’s basically a FitBit for your brain." Read more.

Decoding The Brain: Universal Decoder
by Larry Greenemeier, Scientific American Mind Special Issue, November/December 2014
Another example of a basic universal decoder is on display through January 4, 2015, at New York City’s Discovery Times Square, where Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. exhibition gives fans the ability to experience an interactive head-up display similar to Iron Man’s. A three-electrode wireless EEG sensor activates the display when a visitor presses his or her forehead against it. The sensor also helps users navigate the display to watch video clips, play games and see their brain waves in real time, although eye-tracking sensors and software also assist with the navigation. The system was built with redundancy to ensure that it worked reliably for the large crowds visiting the exhibit... Read More
