The Chinese electronics manufacturer OPPO works on brain signal processing technology. How
According to the Chinese organization TIANYANCHA, specializing in analytics of IT giants, OPPO is working on the specified system since 2018. Three years ago, the developer sent the first application for consideration of patent regulators, and then added two more documents in April of this year. Now the company has received an official confirmation of the registration of rights to his know-how and can begin the implementation of the system in the consumer market.
Not so much is known about technology scripts. The OPPO technical document states that the new approach will allow to receive and transmit brain activity data from the device of one user to the device of another. In this case, smartphones and other mobile gadgets will act as repeaters scanning the «thoughts» of the owner of the smartphone. In the April application, engineers addressed the use of such a system for the development of the health care and sleep management — the function will allow you to track the health of the body while a person sleeps to better plan the rest time in the future.
In recent years, OPPO has been paying great attention to mobile devices with health monitoring features. The current bracelets of the company are supplied with optical sensors to track the level of oxygen in the blood and cardiac rhythm. And in September last year, the intelligent OPPO Watch ECG watches were certified for Class II medical devices in China’s state administration. The gadget is positioned as a full-fledged device for receiving the user’s electrocardiogram.
OPPO is not the only IT company that works in the field of health. Apple, Samsung and Huawei also own several subsidiaries whose work is fully concentrated on the integration of medical technologies into consumer electronics.
