Plug-in your ScientISST Sensors 



You can choose from a collection of sensors. They can be easily plugged in with a Grove connector to any analogue channel (AI1, AI2, ...), or soldered directly on the PCB through-wholes.


Turn on your ScientISST CORE 

Make sure you have a charged battery or that the board is connected to USB-C power supply.

Pair your ScientISST CORE with your computer via Bluetooth





Usually, the device is discoverable by the name Scientist-XX-XX, where XX-XX are the last four characters of its MAC address.

Windows 10 and 11

1. Pair your board on Bluetooth Settings.

2. Go to "Devices and Printers" and look for your board. Open its properties.

3. Go to the "Hardware" tab and look for the COM port number.

4. Eventually, when starting acquisitions, select the correct COM port to connect.

MacOS 12.5+

1. Pair your board on Bluetooth Settings.

2. Wait for the "Connected" state, which will disappear after some seconds.

3. Eventually, on your first acquisition, a numeric code will prompt. Confirm it.

Note: Use Sense Web on Google Chrome.

Ubuntu 20.04+

1. Pair your board on Bluetooth Settings.

2. Get the board's MAC address.

3. On a Terminal, create a port:

sudo rfcomm connect 0 <MAC ADDRESS>

4. Find the group name of the created port:

ls -l /dev/rfcomm0

5. Give permission to R&W the port:

sudo usermod -a -G <DIALOUT> $USER

Which developer are you?



>> I am into fast prototyping

Use Sense Web on the Browser.

A software to make quick acquisitions of our Sense ecosystem of boards.

Chrome recommended

>> I need a personalised solution for my needs

You're in for a good challenge! For Data Science, we recommend our Python API. For more demanding projects, the C/C++ API is a match. For Web or mobile apps, the JavaScript and Flutter APIs will help you.

Python 3.8+

GCC 14

Any Browser

Fultter for Android

Next.js API written in TypeScript

Coming SOON

>> I am a UI/UX designer

Design your visualisation app with off-the-shelf components.



Have fun recording biosignals!

Once you start, you'll never want to quit.

Take pictures and share your project with us!

  • Which options do I have to flash my ScientISST SENSE?
  • How to enter bootmode?
    There are two small buttons near the USB-C port, on the top of the board. 1. Press and hold the button further way from the prot. 2. Press once the button nearest the board. 3. Release the first button. The white blinking light should stop and turn off. To leave bootmode, just press once the button nearest the board.
  • Can I charge my ScientISST SENSE by USB to a computer?
    Yes, you can. But, that might drain the computer's battery cycles faster, for we do not advise it.
  • Can I use Arduino IDE to write my own programs?
  • Blue static light. What does it mean?
    It means your ScientISST SENSE is charging. This is also a feature from an older firmware version, so you might consider updating it.
  • Slow blinking white. What does it mean?
    It means your ScientISST SENSE is ready to take income connections or it is already connected, but not acquiring signal.
  • Fast blinking white. What does it mean?
    It means your ScientISST SENSE is acquiring signal and sending data to another machine.

We will get back to you shortly.
