VICON (12 cameras)
Vicon is the leading developer of motion capture products and services for the Life Science, Entertainment and Engineering industries. Motion capture (mocap) is the process of recording the movement of objects or people. In motion capture sessions, movements of one or more actors are sampled many times per second. Whereas early techniques used images from multiple cameras to calculate 3D positions, often the purpose of motion capture is to record only the movements of the actor, not his or her visual appearance. This animation data is mapped to a 3D model so that the model performs the same actions as the actor.
Dikablis Eye Tracker
Dikablis Glasses combine binocular eye tracking with high measuring accuracy and standardized parameter calculation – ideal for the synchronous measurement of gaze data from several subjects in real-time. The highly ergonomic design ensures a perfect fit and minimizes visual obscuration. They are built to suit any head size and also fit over glasses. Dikablis Essential Glasses are connected directly to the recording computer. Cable Box, video grabber, all necessary cables and power supply are always included. Dikablis Essential is shipped in a transport case which covers all equipment. Dikablis Essential Glasses can be easily worn over normal eyeglasses as well as shutter, polarized and many virtual reality glasses. The slim design ensures a perfect fit and minimizes visual obscuration. It‘s light weight makes Dikablis Essential Glasses ideal for longer studies.

Phantom Premium 1.5
The Phantom Premium 1.5/6DOF haptic device provides the largest workspaces and highest forces while offering a broad range of force feedback workspaces, various ranges of motion and varying stiffness. Phantom Premium offers six degrees of freedom (3 translational, 3 torque) in output capabilities. This device includes a passive stylus and thimble gimbal and provides 3 degrees of freedom positional sensing and 3 degrees of freedom force-feedback.
This device can provide force feedback include virtual assembly, virtual prototyping, maintenance path planning, teleoperation, and molecular modeling. Simulating torque force feedback makes it possible to feel the collision and reaction forces and torques of a part in a virtual assembly path, or the rotational torques supported by a remote “slave” robot in a teleoperation environment.
The Oculus Rift is one of the first consumer-targeted virtual reality headsets. It has a resolution of 1080×1200 per eye, a 90 Hz refresh rate, and a wide field of view. It has integrated headphones which provide a 3D audio effect. The Rift has rotational and positional tracking. The positional tracking is performed by a USB stationary IR sensor, which normally sits on the user’s desk, allowing for using the Rift while sitting, standing, or walking around the same room. DK2 is the latest development kit for Rift that allows developers to build amazing games and experiences.
Emotiv EEG (EEG, Epoc+)
Electroencephalography (EEG) is an electrophysiological monitoring method to record electrical activity of the brain. It is typically noninvasive, with the electrodes placed along the scalp, although invasive electrodes are sometimes used in specific applications. EEG measures voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current within the neurons of the brain In clinical contexts, EEG refers to the recording of the brain’s spontaneous electrical activity over a period of time, as recorded from multiple electrodes placed on the scalp. Diagnostic applications generally focus on the spectral content of EEG, that is, the type of neural oscillations (popularly called “brain waves”) that can be observed in EEG signals.
Microsoft Surface (now called Microsoft PixelSense) is an interactive surface computing platform that allows one or more people to use touch and real world objects, and share digital content at the same time. The PixelSense platform consists of software and hardware products that combine vision based multitouch PC hardware, 360-degree multiuser application design, and Windows software to create a natural user interface (NUI).
Leap Motion Camera
The Leap Motion controller is a small USB peripheral device which isdesigned to be placed on a physical desktop, facing upward. Using twomonochromatic IR cameras and three infrared LEDs, the device observes a roughlyhemispherical area, to a distance of about 1 meter. The LEDs generatepattern-less IR light and the cameras generate almost 300 frames per second ofreflected data, which is then sent through a USB cable to the host computer,where it is analyzed by the Leap Motion controller software using “complexmaths” in a way that has not been disclosed by the company, in some waysynthesizing 3D position data by comparing the 2D frames generated by the twocameras.
