Join us on Thursday, November 16th at 7pm in Intrepid Labs, in The American Twine Building (222 Third St. Cambridge, MA 02141 4th floor) for our next Boston Post Mortem meeting: Neurogaming – I Think Therefore I Can Communicate

 

Neurogaming – I think Therefore I Can Communicate
This month we have a special speaker, from the U.K. – Dr. Damien Coyle will talk about neurogaming and the latest developments in brain-computer interface (BCI).

This neurotechnology research and development is not only aimed at improving quality of life for people with physical disabilities, by helping them communicate, interact with technology or rehabilitate, but also to improve the transfer of information between humans and computers in general, to entertain with move-independent brain controlled computer games and even enable ‘cybathletes’ to compete in the Cybathlon championship for athletes with disabilities. A range of neurogaming examples will be included to highlight how strategies for gameplay with direct brain activity can engage gamers and offer new game challenges for gamers and new opportunities for games developers
