MindMaze is pioneering a breakthrough computing platform that captures brain activity upon intent, creating a new operating system for computers - a brain O/S. Based on a decade of rigorous testing in the healthcare industry, the company has designed an intuitive mind/machine interface, which utilizes pre-realtime decoding of brain signals via neural prediction. Its innovations are poised to transform industries, starting with healthcare and gaming. Founded in 2012, the company is based in Lausanne, Switzerland with offices in San Francisco, Germany, the UK and Romanian headquarters in Cluj Napoca.'
What the world says about MindMaze:
FORTUNE: Leonardo Di Caprio, has invested an undisclosed amount in virtual reality startup MindMaze.“I am excited about the possibilities of MindMaze’s technology, especially for its potential to be a driving force in media and entertainment in the years to come,” DiCaprio said in a statement.
AXIOS: An “operating system for the brain” gets FDA approval. Combining virtual reality and neuroscience may help a stroke patient’s brain recover more quickly. That’s according to MindMaze, a Swiss company that just received FDA approval to bring its virtual reality platform to the U.S. market, after already selling it in Europe. The “neurorehabilitation” platform, called MindMotion Pro, uses 3D motion tracking cameras to coordinate movement and brain function and then analyzes that data to tailor therapy.
TECH CRUNCH: This billion-dollar startup wants to capture your emotions in virtual reality. Social VR has the potential to shift the bounds of human communication, it’s part of the reason why Facebook has invested billions in the technology. One of the keys to having positive VR interactions will be having the ability to interpret the emotions of the people you’re chatting with. Today, MindMaze is showing off the MASK, a device that reads the emotions on your face while you’re in VR. I had a chance to meet with MindMaze CEO Tej Tadi and demo the emotion-tracking product. After strapping the MASK-equipped headset on, I was able to see an onscreen avatar mimic my emotions with startling speed. What really makes this product stand out is the genius form factor: electrodes are outfitted into the foam liner face pad that is already pressed up against your face when you’re securing your headset. These electrodes get a sense of your facial muscles and can even predict what your emotions will be milliseconds before you fully complete it.
