Our mission is breakthrough ideas to extend human capability. As technology scales around us in our world, the human element increasingly becomes the enablement and limitation for technology. We exist in a tenuous relationship with our biology; finite sensory and processing capacities, while also possessing the seemingly infinite capacity for creativity and ingenuity. This is why designing outdoor equipment with human empathy as a focus is more important than ever. To enable higher capability through advancing the application of technologies and our understanding of human needs.
