Mind-Machine Interfaces

Current public projects:

 

magnetometerHUMAN COMPASS

A wearable magnetic field to vibration transducer.
Enhanced cognitive navigation generating a new
quality of perception of Earth’s magnetic field.

Research line: mind-machine interfaces / sensory substitution
Theoretical basis: sensorimotor contingencies
Empirical evidence: Nagel et al., 2005
Expected outcome: improved human navigation skill, new perceptual experience
Current state: testing different hw configurations and transduction patterns
HW platform:
arduino nano + custom hardware
PI: Raúl Arrabales
Code: Github repo (open source license)

 

Rest of the projects are currently in stealth mode, please contact us for more details.
