BITalino - Low Cost Biomedical Toolkit

Out-of-the-box, BITalino includes easy to use software & hardware blocks with sensors for electrocardiography (ECG), electromyography (EMG), electrodermal activity (EDA), electroencephalography (EEG), motion, and ambient light. Your imagination is the limit; each individual block can be snapped off and combined to prototype anything you want. People can connect other sensors, including their own custom designs. It's for students, teachers, makers, artists, researchers, corporate R&D... no electrical skills required!

BITalino - Low Cost Biomedical Toolkit

Hugo Plácido da Silva

Hugo believes he’s one of the few lucky people that can say he worked very few days in his life... not because of lack of a job (fortunately), but because when you do stuff you love and you're passionate about almost every single day, there's no boundary between what's work and what's just pure fun.

He completed his PhD in Electrical and Computers Engineering at the University of Lisbon. Since 2004, Hugo is a researcher at the IT - Instituto de Telecomunicações ( Hugo is also one of the co-founders of PLUX – Wireless Biosignals (, established in 2007 as an innovative technology-based company operating in the field of medical devices for healthcare and quality of life, where he is currently a Board Member and Innovation Advisor.

More recently, he has been actively working (i.e. having fun) towards making the world a bit more physiological through BITalino (, an open source software and low-cost hardware toolkit, that allows anyone from students to professional app developers, to create cool projects and applications with physiological sensors.

His main interest areas include physiological computing (aka biosignals), system engineering, signal processing, and pattern recognition.
