Products that can help improve your millisecond timing accuracy
Featured products
At the Black Box ToolKit we specialize in helping you achieve accurate presentation, synchronization, and response timing in your computer-based psychology experiments. Remember that when experiment generators say they are millisecond 'precise' all this means is they report measures which are in units of a millisecond, not that the timings reported are accurate! We help you ensure accuracy.

We have a range of products that help you carry out the experiments that you have designed but in a much more accurate and consistent way. The gold standard for assessing timing accuracy, event marking and self-validation is the Black Box ToolKit v2. Companion products act as standalone millisecond accurate response devices whilst others let you event mark with ease. It doesn't matter what your experimental paradigm or platform we can help you. Our hardware and software is used in labs across the world and encompasses Cognitive Psychology, Neuroscience, Language and Vision research amongst others.

If you are unsure of how our products could work for you take a look at our What, Why and How pages and answers to common application questions can be found in the FAQ section.

If you have an application in mind but aren't sure, feel free to get in touch via email. Alternatively contact us by mail, phone or fax. We are here to help!

  Black Box ToolKit v2
The gold standard for assessing millisecond timing accuracy, event marking and self-validation. Check experiments presentation accuracy, synchronization with other equipment and response timing independently of your computer. For the ultimate in timing accuracy why not let your experiment generator handle the presentation, but let the BBTK v2 collect timing data and event mark. Remember the BBTK v2 is a dedicated self-contained hardware device that is designed to record onsets, reaction times and TTL event mark physical events in the real world as they occur with sub-millisecond accuracy. Simple to use with a range of external sensors. Be sure of your research results prior to publication.
  Millisecond accurate 1-8 button USB response pad
Our millisecond accurate USB response pad is competitively priced and exceeds the specifications of any other response pad currently on the market. It appears to your experiment as a standard USB keyboard where a button response registers as a standard key press. What's more every button press also produces a TTL event mark! Finished in an attractive carbon fibre effect our response box houses up to 8 buttons in a range of colours and locations (also has sockets for 4 external buttons). A truly fit and forget solution to help you improve your response time accuracy on any platform with any experiment generator. If you can use a keyboard, you can use our response pad!
  Millisecond accurate 1-8 button USB response pad with voice key
Housing up to 8 buttons our millisecond accurate USB response pad with integrated voice key allows you to quickly and easily accept vocal responses with any experiment. Set the mic sensitivity and each time a vocal response is made the voice key will send a standard keyboard keystroke to your experiment. Works on any platform with any experiment generator. If you can use a keyboard, you can use our voice key!
  USB TTL event marking module
Designed as a 16 channel parallel port replacement for simple TTL event marking. Plug into a USB port on your PC/Mac/Linux system and our USB TTL Module will appear as a Virtual Com Port (VCP). To event mark send a two byte code, e.g. "01" to event mark on channel 1. Works out of the box with any experiment generator that can read and write to a standard serial port.
  Millisecond accurate USB response box
The response box is designed for use in custom applications where our 1-8 button USB response pads cannot be used. It emulates a standard keyboard and allows you to plug-in 1-4 high quality external buttons. When pushed a standard keystroke is sent to the computer as though a key on a keyboard had been pressed. It enables you to build your own custom input solutions safe in the knowledge your accuracy isn't compromised.
  Custom built devices and consultancy
As the Black Box ToolKit employs Psychologists, Electronic Engineers and Programmers we can offer a wide range of bespoke services. We have the design and manufacturing capabilities to produce one-off custom built devices for a reasonable cost or to customise one of our existing products for you. Need more production volume – we can help here too. Why not ask us for a quote for custom hardware design and manufacture or about our consultancy services in order to take your project to the next level.
