Towards User Personalized Environments: An Artistic Exploration Using an EEG-Based Brain-Computer Interface

Sep 18, 2014

This study consists of a virtual-reality-based artistic installation controlled by an EEG headset and evaluates the potential of BCI (brain computer interfaces) devices for use in generative virtual environments, as well as the users’ perception of their own influence on these environments. The goal of this study is to explore the design of a 3D computer-simulated virtual environment that directly responds to users’ current emotional and cognitive state and to test to what degree users are aware of their influence on the system. Possible uses of emotional state tracking in virtual and built environments are evaluated.
