News in brief

Available in January 2023:
X.on – new 7 channel EEG headset

Developed for highest data quality and great usability: X.on was presented to the public for the first time at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (Nov. 12 – 16, 2022) and got a lot of positive attention there. This wireless EEG headset allows you to record high quality EEG out in the real world, including self-donning situations. X.on uses sponge-based electrodes positioned at F3, F4, C3, Cz, C4, P3 and P4. The data is streamed to an Android phone via Bluetooth.

The smartphone app, that comes with the system,  checks impedances, records data in the openly readable BrainVision Core Data Format, records additional phone sensors and can send the live data out as an LSL (LabStreamingLayer) stream.

X.on will become officially available in January 2023. If we piqued your interest, keep an eye on www.xon-eeg.com, sign up for X.on email alerts or request a quote already now.

European project "Mindtooth" successfully finished:
interdisciplinary consortium developed a wearable device to decode the human mind by neurometrics

The project aimed to develop the “Mindtooth system” to provide real-time indicators of cognitive or emotional states by processing cerebral signals. The system should provide affordable cross-application indicators based on scientifically proven algorithms, using a wearable, comfortable and easy-to-fit EEG headset, equipped with sponge-based sensor technology and a click-on amplifier. During the project, this innovative system was validated in three different environments: aviation training for pilots, car driving simulator in automotive, and monitoring for industrial workers.

EU ProjectThe project had a duration of 28 months and received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No. 950998. The project coordinator was BrainSigns, a leading company in the field of neurophysiological measurements and related applications based in Italy. The multidisciplinary consortium also consisted of Brain Products, the Instituto Technológico de Castilla y Leon (ITCL) from Spain, and IBM Israel.

Further details about the newly developed Mindtooth system will be available in our next newsletter.
