Feel the Future: Our Third Developer Contest
Our third Neosensory contest is here. Your brain is a fantastic piece of machinery. Despite being locked away in the darkness of your skull, it is the ultimate arbiter of your perception and reality. Your brain perceives the world by learning to decode data from your existing sensory pathways. This starts with the sensory receptorsContinue reading “Feel the Future: Our Third Developer Contest”
Expand your senses: Neosensory’s 2nd developer contest
After an incredible response from our first Neosensory developer competition in which we received unbelievably creative submissions from the world over, we knew that we had to do this again. This time we are collaborating with our friends over at Edge Impulse and hosting the competition on hackster.io. We are delighted to announce our secondContinue reading “Expand your senses: Neosensory’s 2nd developer contest”
Developers: Get started expanding your perception
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”
Buzzing emotions: how Buzz can be used to help neurodiverse people interpret emotion
Chloe and Shannon are finalists from our first Neosensory developer contest. We are delighted to host the following guest write-up from them about their extraordinary submission! When I first saw a demo for Neosensory’s vest prototype back in 2018, my mind was mystified about the seemingly endless possibilities for data to feed into the hapticContinue reading “Buzzing emotions: how Buzz can be used to help neurodiverse people interpret emotion”

Sensing satellites with Neosensory Buzz
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”
Developers: What you need to know to create new senses 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.
