4DForce is a brain-computer interface, head-mounted wearable electrophysiological sensor for monitoring neural activity. The sensors are paired with an amplifier and a computer software to interpret the data. The device is meant to allow the user to measure their own brain activity and help reduce stress and promote concentration. Additionally, the device can be used as a gaming controller.[3]

The device does not appear to be in development any more nor is it available to purchase.

Main characteristics

The device is a 4-electrodes electroencephalography, electrooculography, an electromyography wearable sensor that pairs with a computer and allows the user to measure these signals and use them to control a computer software.


The device should allow user to measure their biosignals and use them to control other devices or software.

Company & People

4DForce is developed by a German software development company 4DForce GmbH based in Meiningen.[5] The company specializes in brain-computer interfaces and cooperates with the Technical University Berlin and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience.[6]
