What is Nurbits?

Nurbits is the lastest project currently in development by IS3D (Interactive Science in 3D) and funded by an NIH SBIR grant. The goal of the project is to create a music puzzle videogame that teaches the principles of neuroscience through play. By building neural networks to solve puzzles players will experience the way that neurons reach action potential and fire to transmit signals through our brains, while at the same time creating music.

We plan to use this blog to document our process of creating Nurbits. Stay tuned for upcoming posts on our design and prototyping process, as well as video and playable versions of some of our current prototypes.
