This experimental lab is designed to empower curious individuals the infrastructure and support to advance shared social science research on everything from meditation to innovative virtual reality therapies.
Individuals have different goals and assets than companies and governments. This lab is designed to support innovation driven and human-centered design instigated by passion and purpose driven individuals.
Triple Smart Labs focuses on low cost, high value research using the following methodology:
Sharing hardware and software within existing organizations who have strong communities, such as universities, companies, co-working spaces, community spaces, art galleries etc. Unlike a traditional maker space model, this configuration helps to mix cutting edge technology with powerful purpose and “why”.
Successful experiments (and the hardware associated) can then be rotated to a new organization to continue gathering data, depth and momentum.
Donors can track the hardware they have contributed and the number of times it has been used. For example a single research grade Muse headset which is valued at $250 might get used by 100 people in 3 months.
Infrastructure to allow individuals to request hardware or other types of support (space, money, people, expertise, software) via a wishlist based on their purpose and proposed experiments.
In winter of 2018, Triple Smart Labs will be taking brain sensing headbands, podcasting gear, virtual reality headsets and electrophotonic imaging equipment to share in Cordoba, Argentina.
Meet the researchers incubating the labs within Cordoba.
