Sensory substitution and addition are exciting frontiers. With our open API and optional SDKs available for Arduino, Android, and iOS, there is a huge range of ways that you can start expanding your senses. With our API you can send and encode any data stream to your Buzz via any Bluetooth Low Energy-capable device. TheContinue reading “Developers: Get started expanding your perception”
We recently launched our first ever developer contest. We were excited to see what projects the growing Neosensory developer community had in mind since the launch of our open API and SDKs. But given all of the craziness going on in the world, we weren’t sure what to expect. Developer project entries To our pleasantContinue reading “Results are in! Neosensory Developer Contest Winner”
Have you been itching to hack your senses? Here’s your chance. Win a Neosensory Buzz plus a $1,000 grand prize while you’re at it! From July 16th through September 10th, we are running a 2-stage contest. In stage one, you can submit ideas for cool apps you’d like to build with a Neosensory Buzz. Smellotouch?Continue reading “Hack your senses – Neosensory’s first developer contest”
It’s a bird, it’s a plane – it’s a satellite When you look up at the sky during the daytime, it seems sparse. Sure, there are clouds, maybe a plane or helicopter every now and then – but there are actually many more human-made objects whizzing above your head then you might realize. In orbitContinue reading “Sensing satellites with Neosensory Buzz”
Neosensory Buzz offers a great opportunity for developers to build new sensory experiences. You can use a number of different platforms to send data to the Buzz wristband (check out our SDKs for Android or Arduino).
If you’ve seen our TED Talk, you’ve seen examples of feeding data streams to the brain from Twitter, the stock market, drones, and so on. In the following years, we’ve built examples using infrared light, virtual reality, lidar, and many more.
And now, aspiring perception hackers can build apps using the Neosensory Software Development Kit (SDK) for Android. Create a new sensory expanding application by sending your own custom data streams to Buzz (our wristband that converts sound from the environment to patterns of vibration on the wrist) from an Android smartphone.
While Android™ has a slightly steeper learning curve than working in Arduino, once you have the basics down, the Neosensory SDK for Android is a breeze to work with. It opens up an infinitely deep world of possibilities without the need for additional hardware.
