TOBI: Tools for Brain-Computer Interaction

This is a technology or research stand, located in Zone R1 - Smart Systems. Stand number: R1-16

The aim of the TOBI or ‘tools for brain-computer interaction’ project is to improve the quality of life for disabled people.

This exhibit is organised by the TOBI project which fronts 12 leading European partners in all the areas related to translating non-invasive brain-computer interface (BCI) research into practical technology for disabled people. After a short introduction to BCI using highly visual posters, visitors will watch demos of five prototypes developed by the TOBI team. Visitors can also interact with the demos. In demos 1 and 2, visitors can control and interact with software and physical devices for communication and motor substitution by using their brain activity. Demos 3 and 4 exploit natural brain responses to items appearing in the computer for entertainment. Demo 5 is a new commercial wireless helmet that visitors can wear to visualise immediately their brain state.
