Announcing: New Sensors and the Frontiers of Self Tracking

April 26, 2011

With the first QS conference 32 days away, we’re excited to announce that Eric Boyd will give a keynote on “New Sensors and the Frontiers of Self Tracking.”

Eric is an inspiring hacker who constantly pushes the boundaries of what is possible using the latest sensors and tools. A long time member of the Bay Area Quantified Self Show&Tell, he now helps power the Toronto group.

He is an expert in wearable sensory augmentation. Boyd’s “North Paw” project showed us how tracking and feedback can affect our sense of direction. His HeartSpark project exposes the intimacy of heart beat to public view.

In this talk, Boyd is going to give us a tour of the new sensors emerging today that make possible entirely new types of self tracking. We know about accelerometers, gyroscopes, and compasses. Boyd will talk about what’s coming next, and what new forms of self-awareness they may facilitate.

Thanks Eric, see you at the conference!

While a student at UC Berkeley, I was awed by the miniaturized devices created in the engineering department for neuroscientists. Eventually, these devices will enable entirely new kinds of Quantified Self projects. Here are three especially promising projects I came across while studying for my degree in neurobiology.
