BrainBit has made it easier for companies to do more with its brain-scanning headbands by releasing a free-to-download kit that lets developers turn EEG data into unique applications.
This week, the privately held company unveiled the BrainBit software development kit (SDK) for Microsoft Windows, Apple iOS and Alphabet's Android, which developers can use to build their own programs that integrate data from BrainBit devices.
The BrainBit headbands work by conducting EEG scans of the brain and tracking its alpha, beta, delta and theta waves.
With the SDK, the New York-based company’s partners can create programs that track productivity, monitor meditation or any manner of things, without extensive medical expertise.
The kit is essentially a set of tools that comes with a detailed dictionary to interpret the medical data and incorporate it into practical, user-friendly programs.
Currently, the company said it is in talks with potential partners, with particular focus on researchers.
