Since 2017, many students and researchers have successfully used Demonstrator Lab to develop their ideas to maturity. This has led to the establishment of new companies offering new products and services. We present you an overview of the current participating projects below.
Eye-opening insights Consumers make about 95% of their decisions without conscious awareness. Attention Check objectively maps out their behavior by using biometrics such as eye tracking, skin conductance, and brain activity. In this way we tap into the non-conscious processes that truly underlie human behavior. In addition we run large N (e.g. 1000) online psychological […]
Climate change is affecting extreme weather – we identify how and when society is at risk Beyond Weather predictability could provide societies with valuable information on weather-related risk, allowing decision-makers to initiate early warning action plans and to optimize resource management. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), we are developing a rigorous data-driven framework that enables automatic […]
Bug hunting with DBugIT Suboptimal testing of software creates problems, such as delayed trains, financial losses and even accidents with losses of human lives. However, students consider sofwtare testing as a boring and unrewarding activity. We are DBugIT and we aim to change this situation and bring fun and excitement in software testing education. Our […]
Calibration-free webcam eye-tracker based on deep learning DeepEye records eye movements using a regular webcam and cutting-edge AI algorithms. Eye-tracking is widely used to understand how humans process information. This information provides solutions for scientific research, marketing & advertising, building human-computer interfaces, and diagnosing mental disorders. DeepEye is designed to make eye-tracking available to everyone […]
As a student, you have a lot on your plate and therefore, need to prioritize. Unfortunately, not every student makes their health a priority. Luckily, your health is our top priority. We are Dream Team Profit, a group of students from different backgrounds, and our goal is to boost your health through two projects.
Fundamental Frequencies founders are two electronic engineers with a passion for music, and we’ve been talking to a lot of musicians and we’ve been asking them what do they really want? We keep getting the same reply. They want to go back to the sounds of the modular analog synthesizer of the 70‚Äôs. That’s why […]
Lentala revolutionizes school furniture into playful seating designs that invite active sitting. The human body has evolved to move, and the Lentala seating designs afford children to do just that: move! Children use a much wider range of intuitive sitting postures than on regular school chairs and more often reposition their body, shifting regularly between sitting postures. We […]
We create Smart Campus Tools. We use sensors and data to improve campus experience for students, while also innovating campus management for the University. We started to develop the PLEQ-app, a study spot finder based on real time occupancy data of study rooms around campus. We want to create the future campus. A campus where […]
The health solution for home and office workers As home-based work becomes part of the new normal, people will be more exposed to work-related injury risk factors – namely physical inactivity and poor workstation setups. If left unmanaged, the resultant rise in work-related injuries could be devastating for both companies and individuals. PreActive challenges these […]
Wij zijn PULSE Racing, een van de dreamteams van de VU, en zetten ons in om functionele elektrostimulatie (FES) voor mensen met een dwarslaesie verder door te ontwikkelen. Met behulp van FES kunnen ook deze patiënten hun beenspieren blijven gebruiken. En dat biedt voordelen voor zowel hun mentale- als fysieke gezondheid.
