An interesting website,neurogadget.com , provides up-to-date information on brain-computer interface devices and research. It features lots of interesting ideas and promises of devices to be released in the future as well as news about the companies making these devices.
The response to crowdfunding efforts on Kickstarter and Indiegogo is truly amazing. I see that Interaxon with their promised Muse exceeded their goals for crowdfunding and went on to raise $6 million in additional funding. The Muse, however, is yet to be released and is promised for late 2013. The new Emotiv Insight exceeded the goal for crowdfunding on Kickstarter. It has five channels ((AF3, AF4, T7, T8, Cz) and does not require saline preparation. It is to be released sometime in April, 2014.
