THE FLOATATION STIMULATION PLATFORM
The Floatation Stimulation Platform (FSP) was the subject of a Masters Thesis at Victoria University of Wellington, 2017. The FSP conceptualises the development of technology designed to stimulate the senses within the floatation tank.
Scientific research shows that experiencing stimuli in the floatation tank is conducive to increased levels of attentional engagement and retention. This can be attributed to the deep meditative state of being found in the floatation environment.
The potential application of FSP technology is very broad. Think athletes, musicians, linguistics, personal development and more.
The FSP research explored the use of audio and audio/visual stimuli in the floatation experience. Early iterations used bone conduction earphones and modified virtual reality headsets.
