Google leads another $ 28 million to Neuron-Reading technology at CTRL Labs' Next Reality



It may sound like deja vu, but CTRL labs with neural interfaces have closed a $ 28 million funding round led by GV, Google's finance arm, for technology that reads the user's nerve signals to interpret handholds.

This is because GV, together with Lux Capital, led a funding round of $ 28 million last May.

New York-based startup is a growing area for user input technology, including gesture recognition, eye tracking, and interfaces for brain control. The technology is to strengthen reality platforms, including emerging technologies such as robotics, through more natural inputs for the paradigm for spatial computing.

"CTRL-lab's development of neural interfaces will allow developers to create new experiences over a variety of applications," says Erik Nordlander, general partner at GV, in a statement. "The company has brought together a team of the best neurosciences, engineers and developers with deep technology background, creating interactions between people and computers, unlike what we have seen before."

The technology from CTRL labs differs from other neural brain control system interfaces – which reads the user's intent and feelings from brain activity. Instead, CTRL labs aim to monitor the activity of individual neurons in the user's wrist to read the intended hand hold.

To get its technology to end users, the company develops a CTRL kit, a combination of hardware and software to integrate the system into apps. The hardware consists of a portable electromyography (EMG) device that measures neuronal signals through skin contact sensors. On the software side, CTRL kits provide developers with an SDK compliant with Unity and JavaScript and APIs that allow the hand to perform reconstruction and measure the power of gestures.
