Project Summary

Amatek was engaged in 2015 to contribute innovative electromechanical and electronics design solutions for the Insight that allowed the flexible arms to be integrated with the dry contact sensors.


We overcame the Insight headset’s design challenges to get it from concept to production. Today its one of EMOTIV's award-winning products.
