A startup company with deep roots at Waterloo Engineering has secured $350,000 in seed funding to commercialize technology for the gaming industry.

Brink Bionics was co-founded by Ning Jiang, a professor of systems design engineering, Erik Lloyd, who earned a master’s degree in systems design engineering in 2019, and Jiayuan He, a postdoctoral researcher in Jiang’s Engineering Bionics Lab.

Based in Kitchener-Waterloo, the company develops bionic arms, machine learning and brain-computer interfaces to improve gaming performance.

Its first product, a wearable glove called Impulse, enables users to execute time-critical game commands more quickly by connecting directly to their nervous systems.

The investment was led by RiSC Capital of Toronto.
