Hungarian startup MindRove has won first prize at the INPUT Program’s first national startup competition for developing a brain-computer interface.
The headset-like gadget scans and visualizes the activity taking place in the motor cortex or parietal lobe via six channels and electrodes placed behind the ears.
MindRove combines special, self-designed neural sensors with modern artificial intelligence to create a more accurate and responsive headset than those commercially available.
The future-oriented invention earned first place in tight competition with fifty startups, including Insimu, the company revolutionizing medical training and education, a financial application catering to Gen Z called BankZee, and a company introducing AR to the secondary education sector, Innobie.
Heatventors came second with a sustainable technology project that allows users to save up on electricity bills and amenities. They received a US$5,000 prize fund. Insimu came third, landing them the opportunity to take part in the Finland-based Slusho competition.
