Applying Neurable to AR/VR
Neurable offers a powerful new method for interaction in AR/VR applications, solving many of the current problems with user experience. Neurable offers a hands-free method for control while avoiding the limitations of other technologies such as eye-tracking or voice commands. With Neurable, users can control menus and options in AR displays, or create magic and cast spells in VR games, all through the power of their brains. Neurable is non-invasive and uses dry-electrode sensors to record brain activity. It is also wireless, so it does not impair users’ movement.
Neurable unveils its Software Development Kit (SDK) to manufacturers of AR/VR headsets and to content developers. The SDK is platform agnostic and compatible with all leading AR/VR headsets, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and the Microsoft HoloLens. The Neurable SDK includes plugin support for leading game engines such as Unity and Unreal as well as Qt, a platform for UI, application, and embedded device development.
Neurable’s patent-pending technology interprets intent based on users’ brain activity, enabling real-time control of software and connected devices using only the power of the brain. The company is developing a Software Development Kit (SDK) for integration of its technology with virtual/augmented reality content and headsets.
