DIY BCI – BUILD YOUR OWN BRAIN-COMPUTER INTERFACE

The Unicorn Naked BCI allows you to build your own EEG head-set and BCI applications with high-performance hardware and open-source tools within hours.

Developers, artists and makers are able to acquire and process brain signals, ranging from simple display of the signals, to design and control attached devices or interact e.g. with artistic installations, toys, computer programs or applications.

Get 100% purity in your EEG data and access to high-quality EEG data and APIs for maximum development freedom.

OPEN SOURCE BRAIN-COMPUTER INTERFACE

g.tec set a new standard of BCI in 1999, when we released the first API for BCI/EEG systems to allow developers to create their own applications.

Get complete control over your Unicorn Naked BCI and the real-time performance. The Unicorn Naked BCI is acting as your hard real-time clock:

  • it sends the data sample-by-sample into your processing system
  • it does the oversampling, filtering, amplifying, noise cancellation and high-resolution digitization

HAND-PICKED COMPONENTS

Stable and pure EEG data guaranteed.

HIGH QUALITY STANDARDS

Based on 20+ years of BCI experience.

NO LOSS OF DATA

Many EEG headsets are heavy and small movements produce artifacts and loss of data. The Unicorn Naked BCI is as light as possible to get the best EEG data.

SAVE DEVELOPMENT TIME

Use the high-performance hardware and well-implemented software to kick-start your project.

"I'd like to thank g.tec for providing such an amazing tool along with an easy to use software package to study BCI."

Mirza Faizan, Founder & Chief Innovation Facilitator at DiscoverSTEM

The Unicorn Naked BCI is awesome. I love the flexibility it gives me for developing my own interfaces.

Craig Ades, Florida Atlantic University

What I like is where the Unicorn Hybrid EEG Electrodes are located: Over the motor, sensory and visual cortices - unlike most of the compact "consumer" devices that mainly register muscle activity!

Alex Ossadtchi, PhD – Center for Bioelectric Interfaces, Moscow

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.

Maša Jazbec, University of Arts in Linz

My EEG project Agent Unicorn would not exist without the Unicorn Brain Interface – two magical forces combined!

Anouk Wipprecht, Fashion-Tech Designer

I make digital arts in combination with light and audio animation. Since I want to develop all my tools from scratch on my own, Unicorn Hybrid Black was the perfect solution. The brain activity influences my visual arts, every time I start my visualization with the BCI, it looks differently.

Alex Guevara, Visual Artist

PERFECT FOR GAME CONTROL

Extract cursor controls and button clicks rapidly.

LESS CALIBRATION TIME

Use the best algorithms to calibrate the BCI headset within seconds.

USER-GENERATED CONTRIBUTIONS

You don’t have to replicate apps that already exist! Use the example code and projects available on GitHub and contribute with your own projects.

The Unicorn Naked BCI includes the Unicorn EEG Recorder which gives you the best EEG Scope and access to raw data.

SIMULINK & ARDUINO INTERFACE FOR EEG VISUALIZATION & FEEDBACK

A project by Craig Ades at Florida Atlantic University with Unicorn Brain Interface & Arduino.

EMC TESTED COMPONENTS

Electromagnetic interference can produce distortions in the EEG data and can make huge parts of the recordings unusable. But even more importantly, electronic devices can produce interference to other products and this is completely unacceptable because it can endanger people.

The Unicorn Naked BCI components are therefore EMC tested and follow the international normatives.

UNICORN HYBRID EEG ELECTRODES

The Unicorn Hybrid EEG Electrodes allow you to record dry or with gel. Dry recordings are fast to setup. For better performance, conductive gel can be applied.

The electrodes do not show polarization effects like many other systems and outperform other materials.

The biocompatibility of the hybrid EEG electrodes is tested according to the normatives.

Electrode cables fullfil the 1.5 kV protection according to the normative to avoid any danger for the user.
