Teosto Futures Lab is Teosto’s innovation platform for research, cross industry cooperation and networking, and developing new businesses. The NEMO Project is a research group and collective aiming to improve the quality of interaction in digital environments. Together we are looking for new ways to increase the sense of togetherness by exploring inter-individual synchronization of biorhythms such as heart rate, breathing or the electrical activity of the brain. The outcome is hoped to be a prototype that can be tested during Sonar Festival. Users of the prototype can be physically present at the festival or not.
Teosto & the NEMO project challenge participants to create a solution that measures and uses emotion-related biosignals to enhance the feeling of togetherness during shared music experiences.
main aspects to be explored
Measuring physiological signals
Visualizing or in another way making results perceivable (“perceptualizing”)
Investigating and strengthening connectivity and synchronization between festival attendees
The outcome should be a functioning prototype that can be tested at the festival
How might we evaluate the success of enhancing the feeling of togetherness?
