Explore user-generated BCI content, ranging from mind-controlled domotics and drones, to smartphone apps and neuro-applications.
Non-invasive electroencephalography system and a very reliable and fine reading of the users brain for an immersive gaming experience.
Comfort & Design
Designed with passionate gamers to be light, comfortable and customizable for a premium gaming experience as well as a stunning aesthetic!
Our mission is to democratize the EEG technology for gamers with a reasonable price and an easy technical integration for gaming developers
What’s the purpose of Cortex Machina Develop?
Cortex Machina Develop is a free Software Development Kit designed to help you easily integrate the Vortex BCI system in your own software applications. Imagine, design and create your own BCI applications. Beta-test your applications on Cortex Machina Play and gain valuable feedback from the community. Finally, sell your finished app on Cortex Machina Play, or release it to the community for free!
So why is the SDK free? Because we want our users to be able to experiment with our BCI technology, explore the vast scope of potential applications at their leisure, and dream up new and unexpected implementations of BCI technology. In the same spirit, expect extensive dev support on our part, as well as regular hackathons with prizes to further incentivize independent creation!
What can I do with Cortex Machina Develop?
Cortex Machina Develop provides developers with access to the raw EEG data feed coming from the Vortex, as well as a number of filtering and denoising tools to improve data quality. It also contains synthetic data simulators to help during the development phase.
But it’s the machine learning tools that are the coolest part! Through our dedicated WebSocket application you’ll have access to the real-time output of our pre-trained neural networks providing neural pattern recognition functionality in your code, as well as machine learning training tools to design, train and optimize your own neural networks for neural pattern recognition!
