Gaming makes us happy and optimistic, they challenge us with problems to solve and obstacles to overcome. But what if games are controlled by your mind? What if secret doors can be opened by the power of your brain?
Whether your are a single developer or a large game development company, with Unicorn Hybrid Black and Unicorn Unity Interface you are able to integrate brain-computer interface technology into your individual game experience.
Get your head into the game! Use the Unicorn Hybrid Black EEG headset together with the Unity Interface and you’ll be able to start a new gaming experience in 2D and 3D.
All the EEG processing is handled with high performance by Unity Interface and you can concentrate just on the development of the game itself. The software add-on gives you predefined control schemes that you can place easily into your game.
The software add-on can be enabled in your Unicorn Suite Hybrid Black.
Brain Buddies was developed during the BCI Game Jam 2022 by g.tec medical engineering. The aim was to integrate a BCI into the game for impaired children who are unable to use their motor functions.
This game can be played as single player or as a multiplayer, where one player is controlling the keyboard and the other one is controlling the BCI.
Looking forward to seeing the first Fortnite character controlling a super-gun with the Unicorn Hybrid Black.

Don't be bothered with the BCI feature extraction, the classification or the EEG data quality because all this is handled perfectly with a high accuracy by the Unicorn Unity Interface. Simply integrate your controls into the game.

The Platformer 3D game is made in Unity. Collect as many coins as possible but only if you set them free. The BCI player has to concentrate on the flickering boxes that are blocking the way. With the BCI the boxes can be destroyed and the player can move on in the game to collect the coins. Each coin closes a bridge which allows you to continue. You can only win if you master the keyboard control and the BCI control perfectly.
The Unity Interface 3D allows to add the controls into a 3D game environment. The example shows 7 controllable items, the EEG electrode quality indicator and the battery status. The ERP Flash controller on the right allows you to perform all necessary settings: Number of training trials, flash time, number of classes and much more.
Drag and drop the BCI-controls into Unity. With the BCI control, the items can be selected and with a switch-case command you can decide what should happen in your game. The BCI controls start flickering in your game. The calibration is done within 20-40 seconds before the game begins. The calibration quality, battery status and EEG signal quality are shown in red, yellow or green lights.
