Social Media App Project
Using the Cortex API and EmotiveTM SDK, I’m developing a mobile application that works with the Emotiv Insight EEG headset to provide deep user information such as the user’s emotional state, stress level, attention, and focus. The technology also allows users to send direct commands using thought alone.
I’m currently in the early stages of UX/UI development but plan on a late 2022 demo release.
“Imagine a new social media based on honesty and sincerity. A place where all minds are open.”
What is the Emotiv™ EEG Headset?
It’s Brainwear® that allows you to monitor your cognitive health and wellbeing and optimize your performance. EMOTIV Insight is a sleek, 5-channel, wireless EEG headset that records your brainwaves and translates them into meaningful data you can understand. Designed for everyday use, Insight boasts advanced electronics that are fully optimized to produce clean, robust signals anytime, anywhere.
What is the Cortext API?
Cortex is a new and versatile API for interacting with Emotiv products, including the Insight, Epoc, and Epoc+. The Cortex API is built on JSON and WebSockets, making it easy to access from a variety of programming languages and platforms. You can use Cortex to create games and apps, record data for experiments and more.
Built on JSON and WebSockets, Cortex integrates the headset’s data streams with third-party software enabling you to record data, create BCI applications or build custom games and apps.
During my tenure as co-founder and instructor at Creative Tech WorksTM in North Philadelphia, I introduced wearable and EEG and Wearable technology to the curriculum. After I left the program I maintained my obsession with these new modes of interaction and sought to develop an application for the future. With this latest project, I’m creating a social media platform with an emphasis on health and wellness.
