Hexoskin demonstrated at Oklahama State University (5mn)

Today our CEO Pierre was in Oklahoma, at the Riata Center for Entrepreneurship, participating in the "Design Entrepreneurs and Technology: Solving Human Problems, Enhancing Human Lives" panel.

Watch him demonstrate our products and present use cases that show how well Hexoskin replaces traditional lab equipment in a most efficient way: Sports Physiology (2:05), Sleep Monitoring (3:05), and Remote Cardiac Monitoring (4:00).

Mars colonists get remotely monitored by Hexoskin's biometric shirt

Jocelyn Dunn, an industrial engineering doctoral student at Purdue Univ., is a part of the HI-SEAS.org project to live on a landscape mimicking Mars for eight months. Along with five other researchers, she will be living in a domed habitat emulating what settlers might have on Mars.

The six colonists wear Hexoskin during their daily workouts, but also during EVA sorties, as seen in the video below, to collect physiological data including ECG and respiratory rate in unusual, stressful conditions.

So if like us you enjoy listening to Mozart while watching Crossfit on Mars, then this video is going to be a real treat for you!

Today is a special day, the halfway point of the 8 month long mission! Tomorrow they will be officially part of the longest analog simulation in North American history (120 days). So far so good, the crew get along well, all signals go! Safe travelling!

Translogic host tests the 2015 Lexus RC F while wearing Hexoskin

Translogic host Jonathon Buckley heads to Palm Beach Raceway in Florida to gauge his physiological reaction to driving the all-new Lexus RC F, with a little help from biometrics experts at Emotiv and Hexoskin. From his brain, to his body, Jonathon's vitals are measured as he takes to the track in Lexus's latest sports coupe.

Watch how Johnathon's heart rate leaps from 74 to 146 and breathing rate from 13 to 34 when driving the Lexus RC F right after driving the 2002 Cavalier!

Training to be an elite athlete is hard

So if you plan on becoming a superstar hockey player over the week-end, this video by elite hockey training camp Goyette 360 will show you how hard you have to train. But it's definitely worth it and camaraderie seems to help keep the spirits high. Share this with your kids!

Hexoskin teamed up with Goyette 360 to add extra efficiency to the training routines. Hexoskin allows coaches and trainers to optimize their athletes' training, pushing the limits back individually and avoiding overtraining, which could lead to fatigue and injury. How do you care for your athletes?

Emotions, to Data, to Art

Art and technology meet to capture the experience behind the wheel.

Last August, The Atlantic's creative marketing group Atlantic Re:think organized a venue with Porsche and a few very special guests. The idea was to present the new Porsche Macan to these VIPs, record their emotions during the thrill drive and then turn that data into art. Hexoskin's smart shirt was used to collect biometric data from the guests, the folks from TRAQs did their magic with the data and Sosolimited, a digital design studio, turned all this into beautiful art. Teamwork!

"Alternately giggly, amped and anxious, the riders sent millions of data points through their shirts into a visual dashboard powered by TRAQS’s system. “You can see someone coming around a corner and their heart rate spikes or they start to breathe heavily,” said Wade Aaron, a designer at Sosolimited. “When you trace their data over the track, you end up with this really unique fingerprint of their experience on the racetrack.”
