Detection Suites
 
The detection suites that are incorporated into the Emotiv EPOC are: 

Facial Expressions

The Facial Expression detection suite uses the signals measured by the EPOC to interpret player facial expressions in real-time. It provides a natural enhancement to game interaction by allowing game characters to come to life. When a user smiles, their avatar can mimic the expression even before they are aware of their own feelings. Artificial intelligence can now respond to users naturally, in ways only humans have been able to until now. 

Performance Metrics 

Performance Metrics monitors player emotional states in real-time. It provides an extra dimension in game interaction by allowing the game to respond to a user's emotions. Characters can transform in response to the user's feeling. Music, scene lighting and effects can be tailored to heighten the experience for the user in real-time. This detection suite can be used to monitor user state of mind and allow developers to adjust difficulty to suit each situation. 

Mental Commands

Mental Commands detection suite reads and interprets a user's conscious thoughts and intent. Users can manipulate virtual objects with only the power of their thought! For the first time, the fantasy of magic and supernatural power can be experienced.
