E-Space presents… NOUS



It starts with waves
Brainwaves have been used in different and fascinating innovations in the past few years. While they hold big mysteries to themselves, they can be captured using an EEG (electroencephalogram) device. The magnitude of captured information is enormous. In this interwind of data, humans need help to find the existing patterns. Technology translates the waves to simple human terms. The nerds call it human readable.

Technology lacks emotion feedback
Tech and gadgets are void of any emotion feedback by users. They are unaware of the users emotional state and unresponsive to the users situations. This human feedback can expand the user experiences. Human emotions are complex and reacting to this new information horizon is no simple feat. Imagine your house trying to cheer you up in the time of sadness or your game console recognising and adapting to your fear inside a game.

What we do
We are Nous. The prototype uses a commercial of the shelf device to capture brainwaves and open source applications to pre-process the data. The timed information is analysed in a Machine Learning environment. The result is the emotional state of the user. The future product will be an API that can use every of the shelf EEG device available in the market. It will have a simple interface which reports the state of the user emotion. It can also combined with a VR device for a total immersive experience.

E-Space presents... STORYPIX
The universe is made of stories, not of atoms. Muriel Rukeyser, an American poet and political activist, said it right. Our lives are build up from this strange material, that seems to hold everything together. It is through stories that we learn, we empathize, we grow as human beings. And it is how we remember. Art has for centuries played a crucial role in people’s lives as the visual appearance of stories. They inspired us, reminded us of the universality of human struggles and opened our...

E-Space presents... Vivl.io
Books are utterly intriguing characters. They tell stories, share knowledge, make arguments, and they fondle, poke and jab our feelings. We love reading them because they let us become part of their stories and, in their turn, they become part of our understanding of the world. At Vivl.io, we work on refining the experience of reading and exploring books, focusing on what we consider one of the greatest cultural heritage: the literary classics. In the age of reading abundance, we believe that...
