Our vision is to create Assistive Augmentations: designing intelligent human-computer interfaces that extend the limits of our perceptual and cognitive capabilities.

We are inspired by extraordinary individuals such as Evelyn Glennie, Ben Underwood who use their biological senses in unconventional ways. We believe carefully designed Assistive Augmentations can empower anyone to live more independently again and even extend one's perceptual and cognitive capabilities beyond the ordinary.

We are a small, unique team of interdisciplinary experimenters.

Our team works hard to craft meaningful, beautiful experiences with technology. Specifically, we aim to foster smart, new and stunning experiences that change the way people live and experience the world. Our current focus includes supporting people with visual or hearing impairments, children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, senior citizens and school children.
