Emotiv Insight Surpasses Kickstarter Crowd Funding Campaign Goal Within Hours
Emotiv invited their early adopters, quantified self devotees, and citizen scientists to participate in crowdfunding the next generation wearable device for brainwave sensing and monitoring and in less than 24 hours more than doubled their funding goal.
Emotiv Insight allows users to optimize their brain fitness & performance, measure and monitor your own or your family’s cognitive health & wellbeing, and develop amazing new applications.
The company unveiled a revolutionary design that incorporates years of proven research with ground breaking new technology. Emotiv has leveraged years of knowledge and experience to create the next generation wearable device that tracks and monitors your brain activity and gives you insight into how your brain is changing to help you make the most of your cognitive performance.
Emotiv Insight is a sleek, 5 channel, wireless headset that reads your brainwaves and translates them into meaningful data everyone can understand. It features an elegant, light and user friendly design along with a new polymer biosensor system that eliminates the need for extensive preparation, gels or saline solution.
“Our goal is to make this amazing technology available to everyone and inspire others to use our tools to make great things. We hope to empower us all to understand more about ourselves and use this insight to unlock the mysteries of the human mind.” – Tan Le, founder and CEO.
The Emotiv Insight is slated for general release in 2014, however, early supporters who back the project will be among the first in the world to get early access to the device.
“The amount of support we’ve received is amazing – reaching our goal in a mere 2 hours is just mind blowing! I’m very humbled and overwhelmed by it all,” said Le. “We’re incredibly grateful to all our Backers who stepped up early to get Emotiv Insight funded. We still have 44 days to go, so we’re just getting started. It’s a step in the right direction towards democratizing brain research.”
