Neurogadget First birthday

One Year Ago

It happened exactly one year ago that was launched for the reason that people all over the World have a website where they can find the latest news of the exciting and continuously evolving field of brain-computer interfaces and related topics.

To be honest, the start wasn’t too difficult at all, these days almost anyone can launch a website easily. The hard part came later when facing the real challenge of keeping the site always up-to-date.

In general the BCI technology is still in its early phase, particularly the consumer sector (e.g. mind-reading headsets, BCI games and gadgets) but despite all of it, the increasing number of the relevant weekly news and announcements, the latest research results and new product launches can sometimes make it a hard job to keep up with the evolving BCI industry. is not perfect of course. We might have made many mistakes during this first year, and we know that the site could be improved in many ways. But in spite of all the flaws, has successfully achieved its first year goal, it has become a frequented website with continuously increasing number of monthly visitors.

Hereby, we would like to thank all of our 33,000 individual readers* who have visited in the past 12 months!
