Revisiting the SynthaSense Suit, Mark 2 Concept

A project log for A Wearable IoT Development Board for Body Sensing

An Open Source Development Board for Faster, and Easier Prototyping of IoT Wearables

I have several hard core body sensing projects, one of which got me a lot of internet exposure back in 2015, which is the SEMG sensing suit.

Control Stuff With Your Muscles, SynthaSense Suit, Mark 2

I went back over the last log that I entered for it, and yeah, basically what I'm attempting to do here is to create the foundation for a much broader based body sensor suit that's user accessible to hobbyists and hackers. Some of the primary goals are still the same. These are the Mark 2 suit's primary goals.

So, no, there won't be any SEMG sensing capability on board like my previous project. And it will output the data for a neural network that runs on the cloud, as opposed to hardware, which, by the way, I'm not opposed to doing on board - I have a neural mem card, which has 1024 neurons. It won't have an RTOS, as it's straight up Arduino/C/C++, it is mesh capable, and it is wifi and bluetooth capable.

You can see the long term conceptual end point in this entry in my SEMG log.

Moving the Synthetic Spine Muscle Suit Forward

Essentially, the IoT wearable Development Board is the nexus and essential platform for the suit. Kind a neat how it all ties together!
