The Brain Power Autism System is leveraging aspects of augmented reality and artificial intelligence to encourage those with autism to make eye contact and better recognize the emotions of others.
Through the implementation of a google-made wearable, the company has effectively gamified the teaching of practical life skills. The device is a simple unobtrusive pair of glasses that are equipped with Brain Power's 3D motion sensing technology. The glasses task the wearer to make eye contact with their peers, rewarding the user with a numerical point system, every time they make and hold eye contact. In addition, the glasses enable the wearer to unlock various gold stars and cartoon figures for accurately guessing a peer's emotions.
This immersive and entertaining device has shown significant results among the autistic community through providing the user with immersive assistive experience and education.
