OpenVibe, a new software platform, developed by French scientists, which was demonstrated at a tech fest at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) allows individuals to control computer commands by just a ‘thought’.

Acting as an interface designed to translate what happens in the brain into a computer command, OpenVibe software is the outcome of a project initiated in 2005 and has a multitude of potential applications.

“The OpenViBE software platform facilitates the design, testing and use of ‘brain-computer interfaces’ – in other words, systems that process the electrical signals linked with brain activity and translate them into a command that can be understood by machines,” computer scientists Yann Renard and Laurent Bonnet said while demonstrating the software at the Department of Computer Sciences, IIT , here yesterday.
