At CyborgNest we aim to create technology that makes us more human, connecting us to the planet and to each other. While others invest in developing machines we dedicate our research to exploring human evolution, investing in humans and not devices. Why spend so much time and money on making technology smarter, when we can make ourselves smarter?
By creating sensory enhancement devices we open up human experience to include the hidden parts of nature which are thus far untapped by our natural senses.
We are available for interviews, for any inquiries please contact
LEAD TEAM BIO
Co-founder & CEO
Liviu is the co-founder of Cyborg Nest, the world’s leading company to sell intelligently designed senses for humans. In his previous role, Liviu was the COO of Videre est Credere, lived undercover and built undercover networks of people who use technology to document human rights violations in places where no one has access.
Design Strategist & Creative Lead
Lesley-Ann is a Designer and Researcher whose main focus of study is emerging technology and aﬀect. Her current PhD studies focus on public perceptions of Human Enhancement, and developing an ethical framework for the design of Sensory Augmentation technology.
OLIVIER DE SIMONE
Board member/ Advisor
Olivier is a digital native and visionary, with a strong entrepreneurial background in music, tech, and wine. He is currently the co-Founder and CEO of Sensae, a mindtech company that grew out of CyborgNest, which utilizes haptic technology to improve lives by preventing stress and mental illness.
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. In either of these worlds 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. Sentero locates you at the centre of your Cyborg Network connecting you to the people and places that you care about - be that loved ones, your home, or other planets.
The perception of an enhanced human, or 'cyborg', is often seen as the physical integration of technology and the human body. This vision predominantly comes from fiction, we see it slightly differently. After the release of the NorthSense we saw the impact it had on the owners perception of reality, augmenting their understanding of space and enhancing memory recall. It was clear that our focus should be on the affect our technology could have on the brain, which adapts to the new sensory input through neuroplasticity. Whether physically connected, implanted, or simply worn, devices mediate our perception of our world and create a hybrid cognition. As pioneers who believe in pushing boundaries, we also partnered with Dsruptive, adding features to the Sentero experience with their SiiD implant.
YOUR CYBORG ORIENTATION SENSE
Sentero is a sensory enhancement device which uses our most emotive sense - TOUCH - to connect us to the planet and each other. It is a smart sense which enhances your perception of space and creates emotive directional communication.
As a new sensory organ, it is worn permanently so that the brain learns to understand the novel sensory information and interpret it as a new sense of orientation. It is not just a notification on a screen, over time it changes your perception so that you experience the world in a new way.
- uses the magnetic north to orientate you
- sense the direction of the people in your network
- sense places that have meaning for you
- send and receive haptic emojis
- feel each others heartbeats
- transmits spatial information to the brain via patterned vibrations structured in our unique haptic language
- optional - SiiD implant by Dsruptive, which adds extra features to the Sentero experience
"I can remember [memories] stronger and they are all connected"
'Can hacking your brain give you an extra sense?'
'The way technology is used, that's the real change'
'The revolution has just begun!'
'Meet the first humans to sense where North is'
In 2017 we shook the world by introducing the NorthSense, a miniaturized circuit board with over 200 components, which was permanently anchored to the body and connected the user to the magnetic field of the planet. We obtained worldwide acclaim from the media and recognition within the scientific community.
Due to high demand the NorthSense sold out within months and in doing so a new cyborg community was born.
'If you give me more sense, more info will I be able to understand more stuff, do more stuff, be more creative or do them differently?'
'I was more human and able to explore new possibilities you can do more than you think, the product is a key to unlock a potential'
'It’s a new way to experience reality'
'Even now I have memories from 3 years ago that are still very alive because of NS….like music it had an extra layer…...I call it a highlighter….. it makes my memory better, enhanced'
