World's First Earbuds With Integrated EEG.

About Emotiv

EMOTIV is a bioinformatics company that develops EEG (electroencephalograph) devices that advance the understanding of the human brain. Their stated mission is to empower individuals to understand their own brain and accelerate brain research globally.

The technology falls under the umbrella of BCI (Brain Computer Interface), also referred to as MMI (Mind Machine Interface), DNI (Direct Neural Interface) or BMI (Brain Machine Interface). The devices they develop aim to track cognitive performance, monitor emotions, and control both virtual and physical objects via machine learning of trained mental commands.

Project Summary

Amatek was engaged to adapt the EEG electronics first developed for the Insight headset into a wireless earbud design.


We engineered the first-of-their-kind Bluetooth stereo earbuds with integrated 2-channel EEG, that are allowing developers to create unique brain activity-aware apps.
