Biohacker Summit partners with Movesense (Suunto) to provide startups, hackers and creative individuals the opportunity to take advantage of the Movesense platform to build solutions that take advantage of the Movesense smart motion sensors and development platform.

If you think you are able to cook up something utilizing the sensors that can be showcased in 4 weeks at the Biohacker Summit, you can enter to win a:

  • Free ticket to the Biohacker Summit 13-14 October + two of your friends
  • Suunto watch
  • A goodie bag from our sponsors
  • A media package from Biohacker Summit

You will also get the Movesense Development Kit for free, if you have a great idea to implement.

This package is around 2000 € in value.

Example ideas for application:

  • Track one of our competitions organized by Training For Warriors (e.g. pull-ups)
  • Track speakers on stage and visualize data in real-time and provide a summary
  • Track one of our performances (e.g. the yoga class or the acro yoga performance on stage) and provide some interesting insight
  • Track the morning meditation and provide insight into calmness and focus
  • Track random attendees throughout the venue and visualize the movement data
  • Build a demo stand where the sensors can be tried by attendees for a specific application, such as a game, a visualizer, a VR experience, a sports session – You name it

We are ready to work with you on any idea worth implementing and showcase them at the Biohacker Summit.

If you think you can build one of these applications or something else that is in your mind, you are welcome to contribute.
