SENSORICA is an open value network, committed to the design and deployment of open source sensors and sensemaking systems, which allow our communities to optimize interactions with our physical environment and realize our full human potential.
Do you like what you see about SENSORICA?
Are you engaged in complementary activities around sensing and sensemaking?
Are you serving the same markets?
SENSORICA is an open enterprise. If you can add value to projects or products that you find here you can join us, no strings attached. You don’t need to commit to anything and you are entirely free to choose how and how much to participate. You are also free to leave anytime should you wish.
You already have the right to remix and make commercial use of the technology you find here, without giving something back to our community. But why would you do that? Joining SENSORICA puts you in proximity with our technology, gives you access to resources and to an infrastructure that fosters rapid innovation.
Please note that nobody actually owns SENSORICA. It is designed to be open and p2p.
If you propose a new project on SENSORICA and you are the only one contributing to it, YOU will be the only one benefiting from the revenues generated by this project.
The open value network model is designed to:
The SENSORICA brand already has considerable value. (Read SENSORICA Product Design Philosophy document). What makes us different is that:
In the information age, know how is more important than ideas alone, it is scarce. Within the SENSORICA community resides a remarkable pool of talent and know how, waiting for you to tap-in. See the composition of our group.
The high tech industry is driven by innovation and is very dynamic. Cross-pollination of ideas with other innovators can open up new unexpected opportunities and doors to adjacent market segments that you may not yet be aware of. In this context, it is a better strategy to play a repeated game with those who enable innovation.
SENSORICA’s value networks are unique and irreplaceable. We develop products and markets, while simultaneously developing the vital knowledge and know how for these products and markets.
We are designing and producing an ecosystem of products that reinforce each others. Thus, the value of your stand-alone product is enhanced by its association to SENSORICA’s reputation and the proximity to other established and proven products. It doesn’t make sense to imitate one of SENSORICA’s products. Outside the SENSORICA context the value of each individual product is substantially diminished.
