Emotiv Systems is an Australian electronics company developing brain–computer interfaces based on electroencephalography (EEG) technology. Emotiv System's products are the Emotiv EPOC, a peripheral for gaming on Windows, OS X and Linux, and the Emotiv EEG neuroheadset.[1] The EPOC has 16 electrodes and is meant to work as a computer input device.[2]

A 2013 review rated the device inferior to comparable medical-grade EEG headsets. Susceptibility to RF interference due to the device's unshielded cables, and electrode corrosion were noted as problems.[3]
