BrainPort V100 Tehnologija

BrainPort System

The BrainPort® V100 includes a video camera mounted on a pair of sunglasses, a hand-held controller, a tongue array, 2 reusable lithium batteries with charger, and a soft-sided carrying case.

The camera works in a variety of lighting conditions and has an adjustable field of view.  The tongue array contains 400 electrodes and is connected to the glasses via a flexible cable so it can’t be dropped and lost.  White pixels from the camera are felt on the tongue as strong stimulation, black pixels as no stimulation, and gray levels as medium levels of stimulation.

 Users report the sensation as pictures being painted on the tongue with tiny bubbles. A small hand-held unit provides user controls (stimulation adjustment, zoom, contrast, test, on-off) and houses the rechargeable battery. The system will run up to 3 hours on a single charge.
