How Does the Technology Work?

Brainwaves are tiny electrical impulses released when a neuron fires in the brain. NeuroSky’s brain-computer interface (BCI) technology works by monitoring these electrical impulses with a forehead sensor. The neural signals are input into our ThinkGear chip, and interpreted with our patented Attention and Meditation algorithms. The measured electrical signals and calculated interpretations are then output as digital messages to the computer, toy, or mobile device, allowing you to see your brainwaves on the screen, or use your brainwaves to affect the device’s behavior.
