To foster growth in the BCI community, NeuroSky has developed generous revenue-share programs to bolster your innovation. Further, our best-in-class developers have the chance to bundle their applications with NeuroSky hardware for distribution around the world, earning significant additional revenue streams based upon hardware sales.

For independent application developers, we provide distribution on our NeuroSky App Store, empowering developers to reach a wide community of users; from brain-wellness enthusiasts and researchers to traditional gamers. This provides a monetization mechanism to the developer while delivering the complete hardware and software solutions that consumers can find in one online retail location.
