What is the Emotiv Epoc?
The EMOTIV Epoc is a 14 channel wireless EEG, designed for simple brain computer interface (BCI) applications. Most of the applications for the EPOC are still available via the Emotiv website either free or for a small price.
It is the FIRST generation of Emotiv Headsets and while we have purchased all remaining 1st generation sets for our franchisees, we have two extra for sale.
The basic software needed to run this is the Emotiv Xavier Control Panel which is free (V 3.3.3).
The Epoc headset is the one we use in our school or public sessions. It is capable of simple brain-computer applications eg: moving virtual objects with your thoughts, the Arena Game and the Brain Visualiser.
While these are great headsets, we don’t recommend them for school use where multiple students handle the device. As a scientific instrument they need to be treated carefully by either a teacher or responsible student.
However, we have had inquiries from schools and offer an education price below which includes delivery to a school address only.
