Press Release Body: San Jose, CA (February 14, 2008) - NeuroSky, Inc., the leading
innovator in cost-effective and "wearable" bio-sensor and signal processing systems
today announced that it will be exhibiting its technology at The Game Developers
Conference 2008, February 20-22, at Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

Along with demonstrations of its most recent product introductions on platforms as
varied as PC's, consoles and mobile devices, NeuroSky will be introducing its
advanced prototype, "Project Millennia," a multi-biosensor headset initially
targeting the gaming and market research industries. NeuroSky has teamed with
technology partners Ascend Visual Systems, Inc. (San Jose, CA), Eye-Com Corporation
(Reno, NV) and Memsic, Inc. (Andover, MA) to support the phase-one objectives of
"Project Millennia:" the integration of brainwave (EEG) translations, 2-D
accelerometer motion, eye-tracking and 3-D surround sound into a single headset.
The technology will be utilized to control various aspects of an avatar's movement
and demeanor.

"NeuroSky's breakthrough technology is creating a new dimension in human and machine
interaction," said Ascend CEO Chern Lee. "Built with Essential StereoT technology,
we are excited to incorporate the surround sound audio module with NeuroSky's
headset to create very natural sound effects while also offering comfort and
reducing ear fatigue for gamers.\"

"Eye-Com Corporation envisions that the jointly developed Project Millennia by
Eye-Com and NeuroSky will greatly change the way end-users interact with the
simulated and real worlds. The integration of optical and neural sensory data has
the opportunity to open doors that we have never considered," said Eye-ComT CEO Dr.
William Torch. "Think about how interactive games will change by giving the end user
another tool to play the game - with and without manual dexterity! Think about how
the games themselves will change 2008 and the future!"

"Memsic is excited to be working with NeuroSky to incorporate our proprietary
accelerometer technology into their next generation gaming headset," says Dr. Yang
Zhao, CEO of Memsic, Inc. "Moving forward I believe that there are many additional
areas our companies can collaborate to create other groundbreaking applications and

NeuroSky management will be available for both one-on-one meetings and private
showings of the latest product releases in booth #6402. To schedule an appointment
