Unicorn Speller

g.tec medical engineering GmbH (AT)

With the app Unicorn Speller by g.tec medical engineering GmbH, words can be written, or commands can be sent to devices by the power of thought.

Unicorn Speller creates an imaginary pathway between the brain and electronic devices.

To do this, one wears the EEG headset “Unicorn Hybrid Black”, which acquires brain waves. Then, by looking at a screen on which a board with various characters exists, the characters will be selected one at a time leading to form words or sentences or control devices.

This Brain-Computer-Interface system is a game-changer for individuals with motor disabilities. A tetraplegic patient who has lost the ability to use his limbs or a locked-in patient that is gradually losing the ability to control his muscles one after another, benefit the most from the potentials of this cutting-edge technology.
