Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) offer the ability to control a computer with just the power of thought; electroencephalography (EEG) is the main method for recording such thoughts. Emotiv Inc. is a technology company which sells consumer-grade EEG devices, promising accessible BCI for general use. This study had participants use the Emotiv Insight, the lower-end EEG device, to play a video game, and compared the results against the Emotiv EPOC+, the more reliable but expensive EEG device. Results showed that the Insight performed probably worse than the EPOC; combining the results with previous literature point towards avenues of improvement for the Insight, including software, training, and comfort.
