What is EmotiBit?


EmotiBit is a wearable sensor for capturing high-quality emotional, physiological, and movement data. EmotiBit provides scientifically-validated sensing, making it an ideal tool for research. It's open-source (Arduino-compatible) and the data can be streamed wirelessly to any platform, enabling artists and makers to unlock new perspectives on biometric signals. EmotiBit is easy-to-use, so you can quickly integrate it into a class project. The data is 100% user-owned and can be directly recorded to the built-in SD card, empowering anyone to explore their own health and wellness without reservations about where that data might end up.

16+ biometric data streams:

  • PPG (3-wavelength) to derive heart rate, heart rate variability, respiration, oxygen saturation, hydration and (we believe) much more!
  • EDA / GSR (electrodermal activity / galvanic skin response) reflecting sympathetic nervous system responses that are driven by cognitive and emotional arousal.
  • 9-axis IMU (accel, gyro, mag) to derive movements, activity, gesture, rotation, and cardinal direction.
  • Body temperature to assess health as well as emotional reactions.

What can you do with EmotiBit?

Whether you're a researcher, developer, educator, artist, or just passionate about harnessing your own physiological data, the EmotiBit offers something for everyone! 

Get inspired by the example projects in the product images.

  • Get immediate feedback about how cognitive and neural processes change your body’s physiology on a moment by moment basis.
  • Log your physical and psycho-emotional changes throughout the day.
  • Use the simple data labeling feature built into the cross-platform EmotiBit data visualizer to leverage data science and machine learning and discover your bio-patterns.
  • Track changes in body temperature, blood oxygen levels, and much more to build a long-term record of your bio-data.
  • Create an audio-visual experience using your own biometric data. 
  • Data is accurately timestamped for synchronizing with other sensors/system

What's Included:

You can select from different EmotiBit options to get the one that’s right for you. Fully open-source, cross-platform data visualizer software (Windows, Mac, Linux) is included with all options.

Do I need a kit?

You need everything in the kit to use EmotiBit, including:

  • Adafruit Feather M0 WiFi
  • Lithium ion battery (400mAh sized to fit between the EmotiBit & Feather)
