Teaching remotely and studying from home has never been easier! Continue teaching with Unicorn Education Kit where your students can study, learn and develop new skills at home. With 8 Unicorn Hybrid Black system, you can teach up to 40 students simultaneously.
The Unicorn Education Kit is designed for professors to teach brain-computer interface technology in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, signal processing, robotics, human-computer interaction, neuroscience, neurotechnologies, psychology or media arts.
With the current pandemic, we needed a new approach to remotely train our graduate students on EEG data collection and analysis. With the Unicorn Education Kit, we will be able to let the students bring the EEG headset home, practice with them and thus make sure they are prepared to run their research project at the Tech3lab once we can resume the operation. In other words, the Unicorn Education Kit helps us to reduce the impact of the pandemic on our training and scientific program.

Developing a students' creativity is nothing but building the right environment for them. It means having the right equipment with the right expertise in any emerging technology.

Our students often request to learn about brain-computer interfaces because its a hot topic these days. So, we use the Unicorn Education Kit to create lab exercises for students in Biomedical Engineering and Smart Home & Assistive Technologies.In one course, we record EEG data and get into it. In another course, we process the EEG data and dive into more technical lessons.

I chose Unicorn Hybrid Black because it’s simple to use. It doesn’t require much time nor knowledge about how to use it. I think everyone can learn how to use it quickly.

The Unicorn Education Kit includes 8 Unicorn Hybrid Black with the complete software environment. This includes Unicorn Speller, Unicorn Simulink Interface and Unicorn Python API.
1 Unicorn Education Kit serves 40 students in teams of 5 for a whole semester. Simply introduce Unicorn Hybrid Black to your students by the beginning of the term. Afterwards, let them create their own BCI project in which they study not only the technology, but also the principles of BCI.
With the help of the Unicorn User Manual and the Unicorn Video Tutorials, your students learn how to assemble EEG electrodes, how to calibrate the BCI system, how to run a P300 Speller, how to interface with a robot and how to send commands to other applications like Unity.
After the study phase, your students have earned enough knowledge about brain-computer interfaces. Now, they are able to develop a new BCI application and focus on a certain topic.
By the end of the semester, your students will present their BCI projects with Unicorn Hybrid Black to you and demonstrate, what they have achieved during the last semester studying brain-computer interfaces on their own. All you need to do is grade the teams.

Abdelkader Nasreddine Belkacem, PhD is Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Network Engineering at United Arab Emirates University (UAEU). He uses the Unicorn Education Kit to teach brain-computer interface and EEG in his courses.
Send your students to one of our BR41N.IO Hackathons so they can hook up with other professionals to realize their BCI project. Your students will learn from our professional expertise and have the chance to win prize money for the best project.
These videos help you and your students to setup the Unicorn Hybrid Black properly and introduce the different software solutions to create own BCI applications.
