Wearable neural

interfaces for

everyday use.

We are a tight-knit team of engineers, scientists, ML aficionados and

product designers who like to challenge ourselves.

Our Mission

Technology should make our lives easier. Give us more time to be present. Not suck us in. It should be built to create delightful experiences, not painful addictions. The next generation of personal computing should feel seamless and natural.
