Sensum Goes Volcano Diving With Sam Cossman

That's how we 'virtually' met Sam Cossman. If you haven't seen what Sam has previously done, then you've got to check out his 'Volcano Diver' video.

Earlier this year, Sam Cossman traveled to the ring of fire and became one of the first explorers to step foot inside the worlds most dangerous and inaccessible volcanos, Marum Crater. More people have visited the moon than the fiery crater of this spectacular and deadly location.

Watch this, then you can continue reading:


We were introduced via the Wearable World guys since Sam was looking at cool technology that could go with him for his next volcano adventure, to an uncharted volcano in the Pacific Rim.

We were super-excited at the opportunity to work with Sam, and after training him up in the Sensum platform, he took off in early December to explore and film his adventure.

During this extraordinary adventure Sam will be using the Sensum platform to record BPM, GSR/EDA, PPG, Valence, GPS, and an array of ethnographic data using the nexus tablet .. assuming that he hasn't got his hands full holding onto the side of the volcano, or finds himself rather warm.

We'll keep you posted once he's back from the Pacific.

"We're really excited to have the opportunity to be included in Sam's extraordinary exploration, and it will be interesting to see whether the sensors can even handle the extreme conditions that he's about to put his body under. We had to manually mark it on Google maps, that's how remote this place is, so it's a really good test of all the equipment we presently use."Gawain Morrison, CEO & co-founder, Sensum
