Trend: Combining EEG with augmented reality to reinvent brain-computer interactions



DAQRI buys EEG track­er Mel­on to build out aug­ment­ed real­i­ty hel­met (Mobi­Health News):

Mel­on, the EEG-track­ing head­band com­pa­ny that raised near­ly triple its ini­tial goal in a 2013 crowd­fund­ing cam­paign, has been acquired by DAQRI, an enter­prise aug­ment­ed real­i­ty com­pa­ny found­ed in 2010, for an undis­closed amount…

The EEG space has imme­di­ate poten­tial to enhance 4D wear­ables with safe­ty fea­tures, as well as long term poten­tial to cre­ate a game-chang­ing brain-com­put­er inter­face that will allow you to con­trol 4D inter­faces and objects in the real world,” Mullins said in a state­ment. “We have been work­ing with EEG tech­nol­o­gy in con­junc­tion with aug­ment­ed real­i­ty for sev­er­al years…”

Mel­on has com­pe­ti­tion in the EEG-track­ing head­band space, although it’s still ear­ly days and each EEG wear­able com­pa­ny is real­ly tak­ing its own approach. Inter­Ax­on Muse and Emo­tiv Insight are two of the bet­ter-known play­ers with head­band-like offerings.”
