Neuros Technology | Products: LINK, OSD, Tablet | Developers



There are a number of projects in various stages of development ranging anywhere from rough proposal phase to completed. The intent of this page is to try to centrally list projects and capture information about their status. Low level details of each project are not captured here. Instead, at least one link should be provided.

Hopefully this list encourages people to participate with others that have started down a project path. But don't be discouraged to explore another direction or propose new ideas and implementations. There can and will be overlapping projects (actually there already are).

It is also worth noting that Neuros is offering "Cash Money" Bounties for various projects, and expects to release some for the NeurosLink once we start to get some devices in the field.
