Where we are focusing our attention
Human Health & Performance

We have spent the last few decades obsessed at the intersection of where people and technology intersect. We aim to dedicate this passionate obsession for the decades ahead on the planet and its inhabitants.

TECHNOLOGIES Vectors we build against

Engineering and Execution (not physical and chemistry)

We are not a "deep-tech" incubator. We focus at where the physical and digital intersect -- deploying commodity hardware, sensors and software toward the application of AI/ML to real-world opportunities.  

Sensor Tech / IoT

In order to change our behavior, we need to first capture, observe, and monitor highly accurate and contextual data about the world we live in.

Computer Vision

By deploying intelligent monitoring and tracking capabilities to the edge we can best optimize the way we accomplish everyday tasks.


The deployment of autonomous  intelligence to augment the world we live in has endless possbilites!

Devices / Wear Tech

The objects, tools and technologies that enable us to up level our ability to innovate, create and connect.


We build against a set of principles that mean everything to us
