This paper addresses the successful integration of Emotiv EPOC and Unity for real-time visualization of brain signals, representing a significant advance in understanding and interacting with brain activity. Real-time visualization of brain signals offers fundamental opportunities in neuroscience, brain-computer interface, and cognitive therapy. Through this study, a solid methodology was established to acquire, process, and graphically represent brain signals in 2D, allowing for an immersive and research-based experience. The results, products generated and implications in areas such as BCI and cognitive therapy are presented. Additionally, future exploration of integration with virtual reality and clinical validation is proposed to advance the understanding and application of real-time brain activity. This research lays the foundation for low-cost research and applications, promoting a deeper understanding of the human mind and its interaction with technology.
