The developer of software based on brain-computer interfaces (BCI) has received a round of funding that will allow it to license its SDK for developers and manufacturers to implement it.
Neurable’s technology interprets the intention of users based on their brain activity, allowing real-time control of software and devices with just the power of our mind. The company will use the funds received to publish its SDK that will allow its integration with content and viewers. “Our goal is to build a new human-machine interaction platform,” commented Ramses Alcaide, CEO of Neurable.
Neurable’s work dates back to when Alcaide was a student at the University of Michigan, and the basis of his innovation is based on new knowledge about how certain brain waves work. Neurable performs complex data analysis using new machine learning approaches, which provide significant advantages in speed and accuracy when determining user intent.
With this they intend to solve many of the current problems that exist with the user experience of virtual and augmented reality applications, providing a new way to interact without using our hands or other technologies such as eye tracking or voice recognition. The user will be able to use menus in augmented reality or create spells in virtual reality games thanks to their own thoughts.
To read our mind requires non-invasive electrode sensors that record our brain activity and are wireless. The SDK will be released to a select group of developers during the second half of 2017, and will be compatible with engines such as Unity and Unreal for integration into content and with devices such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Microsoft HoloLens.
