A Big Thank You!

Just want to say a BIG thank you!! to everyone who supported the campaign. We made it!! With a little room to spare even.

This is great news, and means we will get to produce Spectra devices for everyone who bought one, and ideally we can start a community of people who move medical imaging forward! We’d absolutely love to get feedback from you on the device, what projects you use it for, any questions as you go forward once you get it.

To join the community - sign up to the new Discord channel here: OpenBiomedicalImaging

As we shift into pre-orders, we are adding $50 to the price, because the margins are currently very low. It’s definitely a labor of love so far, and if you know of funding bodies who might be interested in helping further this work, or interesting partnership opportunities for Spectra, we are open and looking.

As a side note, it was really interesting to see how different people in the Open Source community - here’s looking at you Mitch Altman, Alex Glow, Sophi@hackaday, Crowd Supply, and of course our brother company OpenBCI and Neurotechx really came together and helped spread the word on this. It made me both realise how small this community is, as well as how awesome the people are in it! It is lovely to feel supported and surrounded by friends.

Thanks again everyone! It’s time for a quick time-out over the weekend, then we’ll ramp up toward manufacturing (which I’ll be sure to update you on next), and a new website to support forums and and the Discord discussions area!

Product Choices


Spectra Starter Kit

This kit has everything you need to get started experimenting with biomedical imaging, including a small tank phantom, 32-channel flex electrode array, USB cable, and fully assembled, flashed, and tested Spectra board that works with easy-to-install open source host software.


Spectra Deluxe Kit

The whole deal, ready to go. You get everything in the Spectra Starter Kit, plus a custom portable enclosure, an electrode expansion adapter, and a 32-channel, gold-plated electrode cable for performing EIT scans on almost anything, anywhere!


Expansion Kit

This kit includes an electrode expansion adapter and a 32-channel, gold-plated electrode cable (the same as those included in the Spectra Deluxe Kit). The expansion adapter lets you patch out to a standard 0.1" header so you can connect it anyway you want to anything you want. The 32-electrode cable allows you to stick the device on a variety of conductive objects of different sizes as each electrode is independent, gold-plated, and protected by an insulated injection molded cover. The expansion kit gives you the flexibility you need for nearly any experiment.
