Stephen Hawking's Remarks Gives Giant Boost to Brain/Computer Interface Maker IBVA Technologies

DARIEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 10, 2001--Stephen Hawking, author of the best-selling A Brief History Of Time and a professor of mathematics at Cambridge University remarked about brain/computer interface technology last week in an interview.

His remark gave a flurry of business to brain/computer interface maker IBVA Technologies, Inc.

``I've never seen anything like it,'' said Drew DeVito, President of IBVA Technologies, Inc. ``Stephen Hawking says a few sentences about brain/computer interfacing and our sales go through the roof!''

Stephen Hawking said in an interview last week, 'We must develop as quickly as possible technologies that make possible a direct connection between brain and computer, so that artificial brains contribute to human intelligence rather than opposing it.'

``I'm not sure if he knew that we've been working on that for a few decades already.'' Said DeVito, ``But last week was the biggest selling week for us in over a decade!''

IBVA is short for Interactive Brainwave Visual Analyzer. A system created and refined through over 28 years of research. The IBVA provides easy real time analysis and intricate interactive control of brainwave conditions for professionals as well as the curious. Put simply, the IBVA reads brainwave activity in real time and allows you to use them to trigger movies, music, home automation devices, images, sounds, other software or almost any electronically addressable device through its MIDI, serial and Expansion Pak features. With the network and modem features of the IBVA, brainwaves can be analyzed and control equipment from anywhere in the world.
