Abstract

We present a novel brain-computer interface that allows users to control virtual reality using only their brain waves and eye gazes. The interface allows users to control multiple objects with two dimensions of control. The system is portable, non-invasive, and runs on commercial-grade hardware. It thus provides a high-transmission and user-adaptive interface for users to engage in virtual reality. In addition, we present a training procedure that allows the user to increase control over the brain-computer interface by engaging with the program in an intuitive manner. We explain this procedure and demonstrate its effectiveness in formulating more readily interpreted commands.
