Projects in Demonstrator Lab

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.

Attention Check

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 […]

Beyond Weather

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 […]

DBugIT

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 […]

Dreamteam Profit

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.

Flowsure

Flowsure develops an automated urine production monitor that improves patient safety while reducing nursing workload. Patients are monitored by checking vital parameters including the continuous urine output. Today’s manual registration of urine output is too labor intensive, resulting in critical patient information not being available to ensure their safety. Flowsure automates urine output registration by […]

Fundamental Frequencies

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

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 […]

Madglove

Madglove delivers an accessible home-based rehabilitation solution to counteract the effects of hand spasticity around the world. Spasticity, one of the most common effects of stroke makes it very difficult for individuals to use their hands. Madglove designed a smart, easy to use glove to help them overcome it. By improving their handfunction, they increase […]

Pulse Racing

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.

Respira

Breath sensors for pre-symptomatic disease detection Over the past few years, traffic incidents caused by drivers that are under the influence of laughing gas have increased more than ten-fold. Unlike for alcohol and drugs, there is currently no device available that can prove a driver was under the influence of laughing gas. We are developing […]
