Additional Emotiv EPOC (EEG) Headset to accompany the Emotiv Education Kit
This headset is a high resolution, neuro-signal acquisition and processing wireless neuroheadset. It uses a set of sensors to tune into electric signals produced by the brain to detect player thoughts, feelings and expressions and connects wirelessly to most PCs.
Students will be able to utilise the the technology in a variety of new and exciting ways:
- Control the real world, move robots & creations the students have engineered themselves just by thinking about it. Complete projects that stretch the imagination & possible scope of technology!
- Cross Curricular artistic and creative expression - Use thoughts, feeling, and emotion to dynamically create color, music, and art.
- Build life changing applications for disabled patients, such as controlling an electric wheelchair, mindkeyboard, or playing a hands-free game.
- Games & Virtual Worlds - Experience the fantasy of controlling and influencing the virtual environment with their mind. Play games developed specifically for the EPOC, or use the EmoKey to connect to current PC games and experience them in a completely new way.
- Research & understanding - get true insight about how people respond and feel about material & learning. Imagine watching brain activity whilst other students are performing tasks or other subjects like P.E. or Maths! Get real-time feedback on user enjoyment and engagement.

I have found working with the starter kits from CBiS Education really useful in my computing club, the CBiS team have opened my eyes to new possibilities, experimenting, hacking everyday products to build amazing projects with my students. The girls have had a great time building their ideas and the club has made them much more confident in their computer science GCSE."
