Applications for Your Company
Touch interface was yesterday’s news. Modern users control devices with their brain! Via a brain-computer interface (BCI), the brain communicates “directly” with a computer interface, and this imparts a magical touch to a wide array of applications. Typing in texts by thinking them, playing single- or multi-user games of skill, or “subconsciously” ranking graphic information are not only lots of fun; there is also a variety of ways to deploy these modes of human-machine communication at events, trade shows and festivals, as well as in the form of temporary or long-term installations.
Our enterprise applications focus on the latest discoveries in neuroscience and perceptual research that can be used in communication and collaborative creative innovation processes. Especially in corporate strategic decision-making processes, the development of product visions and innovative approaches, the supporting accompaniment with such applications is extremely useful as they make unconscious cognitive information, inner expectations or beliefs or their interactions with physical characteristics visible. Through the analysis and transformation of this information made visible and gained, the dynamics of communal communication processes can be discussed on a new basis and, if necessary, optimized (keyword “Art Thinking”).
Getting started using this technology is barrier-free and intuitive, and there is huge assortment of applications to deliver exactly what the client is looking for. Plus, a BCI can function in tandem with a data converter to implement user-friendly communication with actual machines and devices as a means of controlling their functions.
