1. iOS Installation

MetaSensors only support Windows 10 or newer.


Microsoft ONLY supports Bluetooth Low Energy on Windows 10.

Please ensure you are running Windows 10 on a desktop or laptop. Phones and tablets are not supported for development.

Windows developers can create Windows Apps using Visual Studio. Command line users who want to write scripts (not-an-app) can use Python. For researchers, we also included a Matlab example.

As you go through this Windows tutorial, you will learn how to stream and log sensor data from MetaSensors using Python and C# on Windows. You will be able to make your own Windows App that you can publish on the Windows App store and you will be able to stream sensor data right into Matlab.


We support Python and C# development on Windows.
