Say hello to the Unicorn Hybrid Black, the wearable EEG headset. You want good data. Unicorn Hybrid Black will deliver. Let your ideas come true. Access your brain with Unicorn Hybrid Black. Your wearable, high-quality EEG headset by g.tec medical engineering GmbH.
The hybrid EEG electrodes are placed
- over the sensorimotor cortex to realize motor imagery based BCIs,
- over the central, parietal and occipital areas for P300 paradigms and
- over the parietal regions for steady-state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) and code-based VEP paradigms.
Reference and ground EEG electrodes are fixed on the mastoids of the user.

FOR DEVELOPERS, ARTISTS, ENGINEERS
The wearable EEG headset delivers high-quality EEG data from 8 Unicorn Hybrid EEG Electrodes, sampled with 24 Bit and 250 Hz per channel. Developers, artists and engineers are able to acquire and process brain signals, ranging from simple display of the signals, to design and control attached devices or interact e.g. with artistic installations, toys, computer programs or applications.
LET YOUR BRAIN CONTROL VR/AR
The Unicorn Hybrid Black uses 8 EEG sensors that measure the precise neural activity for control purposes. Using your thoughts to control a Virtual Reality has never been so easy!
Simply mount a HMD like Oculus or HTC to control a highly immersive enivornment in real-time with your mind.
I chose Unicorn Hybrid Black because it’s simple to use. It doesn’t require much time nor knowledge about how to use it. I think everyone can learn how to use it quickly.Maša Jazbec - University of Arts in Linz
I make digital arts in combination with light and audio animation. Since I want to develop all my tools from scratch on my own, Unicorn Hybrid Black was the perfect solution. The brain activity influences my visual arts, every time I start my visualization with the BCI, it looks differently.Alex Guevara - Visual Artist
The Unicorn Naked BCI is awesome. I love the flexibility it gives me for developing my own interfaces.Craig Ades - Florida Atlantic University
Brain-computer interfaces are a hot topic these days. So, we use the Unicorn Education Kit to create lab exercises for students in Biomedical Engineering and Smart Home & Assistive Technologies. In one course, we record EEG data and get into it. In another course, we process the EEG data and dive into more technical lessons.Lukas Traxler - Professor at the University of Applied Sciences, Vienna
I have known g.tec medical engineering for many years and I am used to their top-quality devices. I needed an affordable, small BCI headset that delivers good EEG data quality. So, I chose Unicorn Hybrid Black for our company. We use it for developing and testing VR games. It’s extremely easy to use and I can demonstrate EEG in a short time.Robert Leeb - Mindmaze
My projects “Agent Unicorn“, “Pangolin Scales” and “Screendress” would not exist without g.tec’s EEG technology and Unicorn Brain Interface.Anouk Wipprecht - Fashion-Tech Designer
UNICORN LED BOW
The LED bow comprises 8 LEDs that can be controlled with Unicorn APIs:
- Setting the digital output high turns the LED on
- Setting the digital output low turns the LED off
HYBRID EEG ELECTRODES
The Unicorn Hybrid EEG Electrodes are made of a conductive material that allows you to record dry or with gel. Dry recordings are fast to setup. For better performance, conductive gel can be applied. Uncorn Hybrid EEG Electrodes provide a high flexibility and a practical solution for various EEG applications and contribute to the advancement of EEG technology.
POWERFUL LI-ION BATTERY AND ENHANCED SIGNAL QUALITY
Achieve optimal digitization with a 24-bit ADC resolution and a high oversampling rate to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio. A lightweight high-power Li-Ion battery with optimal performance, offering 3 hours of recording time, and conveniently charged via USB connection.
EMC TESTED COMPONENTS
Electromagnetic interference can produce distortions in the EEG data and can make huge parts of the recordings unusable. But even more importantly, electronic devices can produce interference to other products and this is completely unacceptable because it can endanger people. The Unicorn Hybrid Black and Unicorn Naked BCI components are therefore EMC tested and follow the international normatives.
The Unicorn Hybrid Black and Unicorn Naked BCI are crafted with eco-friendly principles, complying with the RoHS Directive. The RoHS Directive, designed to safeguard human health and the environment, addresses the responsible handling of electronic and electrical waste. Furthermore, g.tec’s offices are powered exclusively by 100% renewable energy sources.
THE POWERFUL UNICORN SUITE SOFTWARE
The Unicorn Hybrid Black and the Unicorn Suite software offer accessibility, encourages innovation, and open up opportunities for pioneering new applications of BCIs. Together, they foster education, rapid prototyping, and collaboration within open-source communities, contributing to the advancement of neurotechnology and its potential benefits to the field.
The Unicorn Suite incorporates essential tools such as Unicorn Recorder, Unicorn Bandpower, Unicorn C API, and Unicorn .Net API, empowering you to effortlessly acquire, visualize, store data, and conduct real-time brain activity analysis. For those seeking expanded functionality, additional software applications are available for purchase.
