The World’s Smallest EEG for IoT

Nūrio is the world’s smallest wearable EEG device that slips over the ear and provides users with command capabilities to control any IoT-enabled device using brain waves rather than voice commands

“Our goal was to package EEG electronics into small electronic housing that is comfortable to wear as opposed to some of the larger devices,” says nūrio founder and CEO Ian Rowan. “The way we made this possible was to put minimal electronics in the actual device, and instead using a supporting device whether that is a smartphone or computer connected via Bluetooth.”

While leveraging the most recent EEG technology, the headphone sized device utilizes three fully shielded dry skin electrodes along with minimal on-device electronics to stream data via Bluetooth to any smart device or computer. This allows for the more powerful processors to leverage the data yielding an energy-efficient, safe and minimal wearable.

With the nūrio device users can add compatible IoT devices to their profile. And after recording approximately one minute of thoughts based on that object, nūrio’s AI algorithms can process their future waves into actionable commands. After set-up, the user can simply blink twice to trigger the device to begin recording a thought. This is then sent to nūrio servers, which process the raw wave into the user’s device, which ultimately triggers the device.
