Areas of Focus
Our research, engineering, and creative work explores cognitive, physical, and environmental augmentation. Works vary in scope, significance, and purpose, but are all driven by a shared vision to explore & engineer the human condition.
Artificial & Cyborg Minds
Cognitive Augmentation & Human-Computer Interfaces
These works explore the complex relationship between biological and digital intelligences in the age of increasingly sophisticated artificial systems, examining interfaces as facilitators of human-computer collaboration, collective intelligence, and convergence.
Physical Augmentation & Body-Machine Interfaces
These works explore the complex systems of the body and external interfaces, examining the mechanisms and dynamics of extending, enhancing, or otherwise altering physical properties of the human experience, through bionics, exoskeletons, bioengineering, wearable technologies, and other hardware interfaces.
Worlds of Imagination
Environmental Augmentation & Mixed Realities
These works explore the human experience of the spectrum between reality and unreality in the era of immersive virtual, augmented, and mixed worlds, examining the relationship between humans and their external artificial and natural environments.
These works want to enhance the every day experience of the human through systems that are wearable throughout the day.
Emotions, Interpersonal Relationships, Living, and more
These works explore how we can live better with each other, through augmenting our understanding and regulating our affects. These can include augmentations for interpersonal dynamics, individual change, and more.
