Supermechanical is a few people making augmented tools for people. We believe in a future for electronics that let you worry less and do more, with the privacy, ownership, and authorship that Web 1.0 granted us. We love how technology can empower regular people, and we do work we care about.
Founded in 2011, Supermechanical grew out of designer/software developer John Kestner’s graduate work at the MIT Media Lab, where he explored ways to incorporate connectivity into the physical interfaces of everyday objects. We’re designer-engineers who have appeared in all your favorite media, from the Wall Street Journal and Metropolis to Wired and Better Homes & Gardens.
We’ve got extensive experience designing, developing and manufacturing physical/digital products. We can help with proof-of-concept prototypes to product strategy to production code and CAD, and anything in between—contact us.
