It is a new sensory organ, where it is directed it will sense.
WILL IT BUZZ IF I TURN TO FACE A NEST, OR WHEN MY ARM DOES?
The device is designed to sit anywhere on your inner arm which enables you to feel the vibrations best and read your heart rate. Different strap sizes/adjustments allow for these placements. In theory you can wear it on other parts of the body. The most important thing is that you always wear it on the same spot.
CAN I PUT IT SOMEWHERE ELSE ON MY BODY?
Technology has not caught up with our imagination and ambition, it needs to be a bit larger to have the functions. Also this version is a non-invasive device due to feedback from the wearers of the NorthSense, and so that it can accommodate a wider public who want to be enhanced.
WHY IS THIS VERSION NOT PIERCED?
The Sentero permanently pairs with the North to orientate all other pairings. You can then choose 3 Nests to sense at a time, these can be changed as you please.
HOW MANY PEOPLE/PLACES CAN I PAIR WITH?
Sensing North will always be on and not internet required, the rest will need a phone/internet connection. This also allows you to personalize who/what you are sensing.
WILL IT NEED A CONNECTION TO A PHONE/INTERNET TO WORK?
Yes. The vibrations are not strong enough to cause any damage, just a small stimulation on the skin as if you were holding your phone there. The materials are also skin safe.
IS IT SAFE?
You can only be sensed/ sense someone who has consented to pairing, i.e. you must know the other person and both agree to pair.
WILL PEOPLE BE ABLE TO STALK ME WITH IT?
Yes. Permissions are needed to sense others, but you are always in control of who can sense you and when i.e. you can turn off permissions.
CAN I DISABLE BEING SENSED BY OTHERS?
No. Sensing North is permanently on to orientate all the other Nests. Your brain needs this as a cognitive anchor.
CAN I DISABLE NORTH?
Your data belongs to you and not to us and it’s secured.
WHO OWNS THE DATA COLLECTED AND CAN I ACCESS IT?
Imagine you would have not had the ability to hear, and someone offers you to hear all the time, that sounds irritating as well. In reality, the brain learns to filter a lot of the information the brain is receiving, and you focus only on what you need to.
ISN'T IT IRRITATING TO SENSE IT ALL THE TIME?
We live in a global community where we can travel across the globe pretty easily compared to our ancestors, which means we spend a lot of time far from those that we care about. Sadly, now we are experiencing the other extreme, where our movement is restricted and so we have much less connection to those outside our homes. We understood that an enhanced sense of orientation, location, proximity and navigation is very relevant to our existing life and future as a species - how we move and connect to one another.
No. The SiiD capsule implant is an optional extra which can be bought on the Steve Haworth website and then used together with Sentero.
DOES IT INCLUDE THE PRICE FOR INJECTING THE CAPSULE?
Within 2cm of Sentero. Do not implant the capsule before having the Sentero to make sure the placement is right for you.
WHERE DO I PLACE SiiD IMPLANT?
Yes, as long as you know basic coding required for it, it is an open source device.
CAN I DEVELOP ADDITIONAL APPLICATIONS TO USE WITH THE IMPLANT?
This will create a unique and personal way of connecting with someone in another city, continent or planet. With time, as you get used to someone’s heart beat, you could also sense the differences in rhythm. What you feel is live and will allow you to understand their physical and emotional status.
