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.

The BR41N.IO Hackathons are great because they bring people together with such diverse backgrounds that would not otherwise have met and interacted. This cross fertilization of ideas and backgrounds is paramount to generating out-of-the-box ideas, especially for an area that is so interdisciplinary as Brain-Computer Interfaces.

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.

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.

We have 4 Unicorn Hybrid Black headsets at University which allow many Professors to create lab exercises in small groups. They record EEG data in the course “Signal Acquisition” and analyse the signals in the course “Processing of Biosignals”. This interdisciplinary approach is important to us.

I have known g.tec medical engineering for many years and I am used to their top-quality devices. I needed an affordable, small BCI headset that delivers good EEG data quality. So, I chose Unicorn Hybrid Black for our company. We use it for developing and testing VR games. It’s extremely easy to use and I can demonstrate EEG in a short time.

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.

The BR41N.IO Hackathon offers a high professional level accompanied with intensive mentoring and support by the team of g.tec neurotechnology. This approach lead to astonishing results and gave the visitors of the Ars Electronica Festival some interesting insights in the many application possibilities of brain-computer interface and neurotechnology.
Gerfried Stocker, Artistic Director Ars Electronica Linz
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.
