Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. Announces Emotiv EPOC Brain-to-Computer Interface

Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. is featuring the Emotiv EPOC brain-to-computer interface in this week’s Developing the Internet of Things (IoT) Showcase. The EPOC is a neuroheadset designed for practical, contextualized research applications, providing access to high quality, raw electroencephalography (EEG) data. The Emotiv EPOC is a connected, wearable device for the IoT marketplace that records electrical signals along the scalp, and transmits that data wirelessly to PCs, tablets and smartphones. Using the Appmethod software development platform, developers can create applications for the EPOC, opening up opportunities to the new world of connected apps and gadgets that can be controlled by thought, head rotation (gesture input), emotions, and facial expressions. Wearable devices are at the forefront of the expanding IoT landscape, with innovative new products such as the Emotiv EPOC, Apple Watch, FitBit, Samsung Gear and the Motorola Moto360 emerging each week. All of these wearables interface with a user’s mobile or desktop device through connected apps. Using a single app development platform and shared C++ codebase, Appmethod provides the tools developers need to build natively compiled apps for multiple form factors, and easily extend those applications to mobile devices or desktop platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows and OS X, via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi app tethering. The Emotiv EPOC provides the brain-to-computer interface using a proprietary wireless, 2.4GHz band. Using electrodes that read raw EEG data, the EPOC picks up brainwaves through its various sensors and reference receivers, and converts that data into a signal that can be read by a computer. For head tracking it also includes a head mounted gyroscope. The sensor input comes in 4 different categories: head rotation, facial expressions, emotions and direct thought control. Applications for the Emotiv EPOC may include: The gyroscope functionality can be used by persons with disabilities to control a computer mouse, wheelchair control or home automation system; the Neuroheadset can be used for mental typing applications and innovative gameplay mechanics driven by thought.

The expanded XE6 portfolio provides new support for platforms including MongoDB, Hadoop Hive and PostgreSQL. Meeting Big Data Challenges: ER/Studio: Data modelers and architects are facing larger, more complex data models and tasked with managing numerous stakeholder groups that need access to information assets. The new release of ER/Studio provides big data support along with performance improvements to handle large, collaborative model management needs. New features: Reverse-engineering support for Hadoop Hive and MongoDB big data platforms; extended 64-bit memory model improves system performance with large datasets; enterprise Team Edition offers enhanced collaboration on models and metadata across the organization. DBArtisan and Rapid SQL: Database administrators and developers are being challenged with administration, tuning and development across complex, heterogeneous database environments. The new release of DBArtisan and Rapid SQL provides PostgreSQL support enabling work across an even broader set of DBMS platforms using a single, consistent tool which lower learning curves, reduces IT maintenance and improves productivity. New features: PostgreSQL support including Greenplum MPP & Pivotal HAWQ SQL-on-Hadoop; SQL Server 2014 support delivers up-to-date administration and development capabilities.

Embarcadero Technologies Unveils Technology Strategy for Developers to Create Connected Apps for the Internet of Things

Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. unveiled its technology strategy for developers to build a new breed of connected apps for the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) market. According to Gartner Inc., IoT will grow to 26 billion units installed in 2020 (in addition to 7.3 billion PCs, tablets and smartphones), representing an almost 30-fold increase from 0.9 billion in 2009. The results of a new Embarcadero developer survey echoes this growth trend, with 31% of respondents already engaged in IoT projects. Of those not yet developing for IoT, 86% have plans to begin their first connected app projects starting within the next three years. New Embarcadero Technologies Enabling the Development of Connected Apps for IoT. Embarcadero's strategy for IoT is to focus on four key areas of interconnection: mobile/desktop devices; gadgets; cloud services; and, data. Embarcadero offers new technologies to address these key areas and enable the development of a new breed of connected apps for the IoT market. New technologies include: User Interface (UI) Design for Multiple Form Factors and Devices: Embarcadero's new FireUI enables developers to create a shared master UI form across all devices and form factors, leveraging common user interface source code that can be optimized for the native platform experience on each specific device form factor. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi App Tethering: Developers can instantly connect disparate devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi app tethering, enabling app connected solutions that span the thousands of consumer and industrial gadgets, devices, PCs, and sensors available. Enterprise Mobility Services (EMS): Enterprise Mobility Services support connectivity with backend enterprise data and APIs essential for building connected apps for the Internet of Things. As a turnkey mobile middleware solution, EMS can easily be deployed on premise or into a private cloud, and provides user authentication and analytics. With launch of the latest release of Appmethod, Embarcadero's new technologies for enabling the development of connected apps are available immediately.
