Google launches another $ 28 million financing round for Neuron reading technology at CTRL-Labs «Next Reality



It may sound like a Deja Vu, but CTRL-labs, a startup for neural interfaces, has completed a $ 28 million round of financing led by GV, Google's funding arm. The technology reads the user's nervous signals to interpret hand gestures.

The New York-based startup is in a growing field of user input technology including gesture recognition, eye tracking and brain control interfaces. The technology offers advanced reality platforms, along with other emerging technologies such as robotics, through more natural inputs to the paradigm of spatial computing.

"Developing CTRL-labs neuronal interfaces allows developers to gain novel experience in a variety of areas," said Erik Nordlander, General Partner at GV, in a statement. "The company has assembled a team of leading neuroscientists, engineers and developers with a deep technology background to shape human-computer interaction that we have not seen before."

CTRL-Labs technology differs from other neuronal interfaces, such as brain control systems – which read the user's intentions and emotions from brain activity. Instead, CTRL labs aim to monitor the activity of individual neurons on the user's wrist to read intended hand gestures.

In order to make its technology available to end users, the company is developing a CTRL kit, a combination of hardware and software for integrating the system into apps. The hardware consists of a portable electromyography device (EMG) that measures neuron signals via skin contact sensors. On the software side, the CTRL kit provides developers with an SDK-compatible SDK compatible with Unity and JavaScript, as well as APIs that enable hand gesture reconstruction and gesture force measurement.
