Abstract:Generally brain-computer interface (BCI) systems are evaluated based on the assumption that the user is trying to perform a specific task in the most efficient way. BCI for entertainment yields interesting applications for both patients and healthy users. Then the purpose is to create positive experiences that enrich our lives. To evaluate such systems, the user experience needs to be taken into account to understand how a system can satisfy these needs. This paper points at the gap in user experience evaluation currently in BCI research, and shows how user experience evaluation could benefit BCI, through increased user acceptance, enjoyment, BCI task performance, enhanced human-computer interaction, and improved selection of suitable mental tasks in a given context.
