Heart Rate Sensors

Although not required, the Windows (including VR) and Mac versions of Nevermind are designed and intended to be played with biofeedback technology. The game currently responds to emotion-based biofeedback with a standard webcam via Affectiva’s Affdex technology and/or physiological-based biofeedback via a supported heart rate sensor. While we plan to eventually support as many heart rate sensors as is possible, here is a list of the HR sensors that Nevermind currently supports and where you can purchase them.

Unlike many gaming peripherals, all of these heart rate sensors have other uses in addition to their gaming potential (for example, the heart rate strap and wrist sensors are also excellent exercise enhancers and the Intel® RealSense™ Technology computers support many other games and apps that use its 3D depth-sensing tech). If you’d like to see a side-by-side comparison of the sensors we currently support, please scroll down to the Quick Guide section of this page.

NOTE: The sensors listed represent devices compatible with Nevermind as of December 2017. As operating systems, hardware, and computers continue to evolve, please be aware that some of these devices may not work with Nevermind in the future. We will continue to try to ensure that everything remains up-to-date and compatible, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all device compatibility issues that may arise in the future.

If you are the manufacturer of a pulse-detecting sensor that reads and outputs heart rate or heart rate variability data and would like work with us to ensure compatibility with Nevermind, please contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.
