Neurable build brain computer interfaces. A brain computer interface uses hardware (usually a EEG headset with electrodes to send signals) and software to enable control through brain activity in real time. This neurotechnology interface is being used in non-clinical industries such as education and entertainment. An example is that users can use their thoughts to control games using technologies such as virtual reality.
HOW THEY’RE DISRUPTING
Neurotechnology has been traditionally developed in the last 50 years for clinical purposes, but Neurable see the potential to augment human cognitive functions for a much wider range of purposes, such as entertainment, gaming and work. They have already demoed the world’s first mind-controlled VR game with positive reception.
The potential for large entertainment companies and franchises to incorporate this technology into their products could result in a multi-million industry. Entertainment VR investments alone jumped 79% in 2017, and the technology potential to create an more immersive and augmented experience would give any entertainment company their competitive edge.
INVESTMENTS AND FUTURE
Neurable secured $2m investment from BOSS Syndicate, a group of angel investors in Boston (US) and other investors such as PJC and NXT Ventures. Their long-term vision is the become a software platform that easily integrate on every hardware that allows you to read brain activity.
