Brainwave eReader - Eaglescience

Brainwave eReader

Enriching your reading experiences

Eaglescience participates in a unique project: Brainwave eReader. International bestselling writer Arnon Grunberg has written a book especially for a short valorisation project called Quantified Reader. This project will evaluate a proof of concept product that will enhance the reading experience for e-book readers through measuring emotions of the reader and share them with others. Brainwave eReader is part of this valorisation project.

New features for eBooks and tablets are constantly being developed. Imagine features like enriching an eBook or tablet experience with images and sounds, adjusting the storyline or engaging dialogue between readers. The Brainwave eReader project enables all these items by measuring the reader’s emotional state of mind by using a combination of (neuro) physiological measures (such as EEG, heartbeat, skin conductance) and subjective measures.

“This project will evaluate a proof of concept that will enhance the reading experience for e-book readers through measuring emotions of the reader.”

Brainwave & Eaglescience

COMMIT is a public-private research community where universities, technological institutes and small & large businesses participate in public-private multi-party projects. Project SWELL (Smart Reasoning Systems for Well-being at Work and at Home) is one of the COMMIT projects. Brainwave eReader is part of project SWELL.

The objective of SWELL is to develop user-centric sensing and reasoning techniques that help to improve physical well-being (mostly in a private context) and to improve well-working (in a work context). Of course physical well-being influences well-working and vice versa. Well-working could be defined as “being and feeling in control”, with a positive impact on work efficiency and effectiveness, work pleasure, mental and physical health status.
