Non-invasive sensor for Computer Brain Interface (BCI). Smart technology in development for our health

The machine mind interactivity began to develop more than a century ago, when in 1924 we met the EEG (Electroencephalogram), a device capable of measuring the electrical activity of the brain. It was an intense investigation throughout the seventies thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation and DARPA.

Brain research and mind-machine interactivity has accelerated in recent years, EEG technology has become much cheaper and less invasive. Several companies, including Facebook, are looking for ways to compress this technology into a novel consumer product, which consists of a non-invasive sensor for disabled individuals, such as those who are paralyzed. Non-invasive brain computer interfaces (CCI) can now translate the activity of the brain's speech center, into text or into some other interaction with a digital device.

EEG interfaces usually consist of headphones, masks or bracelets that convert brain activity into digital signals. Based on this, mind-machine interactivity devices are being developed that allow you to read the impulses of the nervous system and that could allow you to write with your mind. The potential of BCI applications of virtual reality could revolutionize the environment without having the infinite solutions that it will give to the beneficiaries.

Regina Dugan, outgoing head of Facebook's 8th building, also former Google and DARPA, said at the F8 developer conference in April 2017 that the company is developing a non-invasive sensor that can turn the thoughts of the speech center of its brain in text, through a team capable of transcribing 100 words per minute. This is the result of the effort made by associations between Facebook and more than 60 researchers and engineers from institutions such as John Hopkins, UC San Francisco, UC Berkeley and Washington University.

Other future technologies based on EEG are:

Neurable - Work on a brain control system for augmented and virtual reality applications that involves an EEG headset with electrodes next to an application that analyzes brain activity and converts them into commands.

CTRL-Labs - Uses a bracelet to read electrical signals from the arm, which has motor neurons so complex that they are compared to speech, making them an ideal candidate to interconnect with computers and mobile devices.

Emotiv - Employs a 5 or 14 channel EEG headset for brain monitoring and cognitive assessment that can be used for brain control technology, brain wellness assessment, brain research and education, as well as to reveal emotional reactions to products.

NeuroSky NeuroSky - Uses a multi-layered approach to full VR immersion goggles and an EEG headset to provide with 'telekinesis' powers such as the ability to launch a truck with your mind in the Neuroboy game.

Open-BCI - An open source DIY biohacker kit that is compatible with Arduino and wireless. The package integrates biosensorization and biofeedback with open source hardware, providing a suite of desktop applications, an SDK and integration with third parties.
