The platform brain computer being developed will act as a bi-directional portal; connecting the mind to immersive, creative and playful experiences and also as a gateway into the mind. When wearing MindPortal’s device, people will be able to create and share new experiences e.g. in VR/AR, just by using their thoughts, and channel experiences into their mind.

“All technology has been generated from the ingenuity of the human mind, but for the first time in the history of our species, we are turning that ingenuity towards creating technology that enhances the human mind itself,” Ekram Alam, Co-founder & CEO of MindPortal.
