IDUN Technologies was founded by Séverine Gisin and Simon Bachmann and incorporated in 2017 as a spin-off from the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich, Switzerland. It spun out with a material innovation for sensors developing a dry, flexible, soft and bio-compatible innovative material to measure high-quality ExG.
In 2020, IDUN Technologies pivoted towards the brain by measuring EEG from the ear, aiming to functionalize scalable hearables with its patented DRYODE™ material. The choice of earbuds came from the intuition that earphones, the most widely adopted wearable device in modern society, are one of the best candidates as the next health platform for consumer well-being and health applications: a sort of smartwatch for the brain. Its location is close to the brain, and the reduced movement, thanks to good stabilization in the ear, allows one to pick up high-quality EEG.
Today, we have a core team of around 20 people, covering the full stack: from material science, electrical and cloud engineers, to ML experts and neuroscientists. We are developing a global brain data platform to scale personalized interventions through in-ear EEG earbuds. IDUN is positioning itself in the B2B field and works with its partners› ecosystem to enable interventions in diverse industries, ranging from sleep, hearing, and mindfulness, to gaming and safety.
