We are Machine Centered.

We amplify the potential of human interaction by inventing new communication paradigms with machines.

We are confronting the future of automation and AI, by putting forth a vision in which humans and machines thrive together in an evolving technological landscape.

Our tools are created to compliment human capabilities and creativity. We are opening pathways towards more meaningful applications of voice, touch and gesture in social robotics, manufacturing and art.
