Due to an extensive list of restraints, Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology has seen limited success outside of laboratory conditions. In order to address these limitations, which have prevented widespread deployment, an existing modular architecture has been adapted to support hybrid collaboration of commercially available BCI and eye tracking technologies. However, combining multiple input modalities, which have different temporal properties, presents a challenge in terms of data fusion and collaboration at the User Interface. The use of cost-effective and readily available equipment will further promote hybrid BCI as a viable but alternative interface for Human Computer Interaction. In this paper, we focus on navigation through a virtual smart home and control of devices within the rooms; the navigation being controlled by multimodal interaction. As such, it promises a better information transfer rate than BCI alone. Consequently, an extended architecture for a personalised hybrid BCI system has been proposed.
