2009 – 2016
Sensebridge began at Noisebridge’s Sunday Cyborg Mass, a weekly gathering where like-minded folks would hack devices to turn ourselves into cyborgs. Inspired by the FeelSpace magnetic-north-telling belt, our vision was to bridge senses by using devices to add senses we didn’t have to those we did – augmentation and addition if you will. Early experimentation led to the North Paw compass anklet as well as various ultrasonic listening devices, some electronic jewelry, and other wearables. When our friends demanded their own North Paws, we set about creating a kit business and Sensebridge was born. Before closing the business in 2016, over 800 kits were sold.
