PLX Presents XWave Sport
Brain Computer Interface Made for Everyday Wear
SUNNYVALE, CA – June 25, 2012 – PLX Devices Inc. today presents the new XWave Sport, a fashionable brain computer interface headband that is also designed for everyday wear. The XWave Sport safely measures and detects your brainwaves through a soft conductive fabric placed gently over your left eyebrow and translates that information into useful mental states. Your relaxation, focus and other parameters can be measured and sent to your mobile device and/or PC. Apps are available from games, brain training, and mental health training. It’s technology that takes advantage of the amazing power of the human brain. XWave Sport is patent pending and will retail for just $99.
“The XWave Sport is simply cool,” said Paul Lowchareonkul, PLX’s CEO. “It can be worn everyday and in public without feeling self conscious about the technology. For the first time, medical grade EEG technology can be used discretely and completely hidden away from public view.”
The XWave Sport is a comfortable headband with an embedded brainwave controller module completely hidden inside. The headband is designed to be comfortable, washable and sweat absorbing for even the most extreme activities. It maintains a solid connection in even the most demanding physical activities such as mountain biking, running and other high vibration applications. It employs conductive fabric and gently makes contact with your forehead to reliably detect your brainwave signals. The headbands are available in many color options.
The controller module includes a built-in lithium battery capable of operating the XWave Sport for 6 hours on a single charge. It includes an AC adapter to charge the XWave Sport in as little as 30 minutes. It also includes an integrated Bluetooth module to pair with iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, Android, and PC apps. The module is extremely small (1.5 x 1.0 x 0.47 in) and when tucked away in the headband it is not noticeable. The patent pending ear clip ground has also been reinvented with magnetic clips designed to make contact on the top of your ear for improved signal performance and better aesthetic appeal. The controller module is completely removable from the headband so that it can be washed without damaging the electronics.
Software development kits (SDK) are available for application developers for the Apple iOS, Android and PC platform. This allows app developers to add compelling hardware interfaces for any type of application. Whether it is relaxation, brain training, entertainment, games, social networking, sports, sleep, the possibilities are endless with the XWave Sport.
