OUR FIRST PRODUCT IS DESIGNED TO ENHANCE THE SAFETY AND JOY OF SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY BY

ILLUMINATING THE RIDER COMMUNITY IN SYNCHRONY

Lights synchronize across nearby riders, unifying their collective presence.

When riders come near each other, their lights begin pulsating in synchrony. Whether they know each other, are riding together, or simply passing by, they create a temporary swarm. Their collaboration is effortless.

Inspired by nature, designed for city streets

Swarm lights are inspired by the synchrony emerging in nature, such as the synchronized chirping of crickets, the coordinated lights of fireflies, or the unified flights of birds.
Designed to synchronize
all kinds of micromobility

OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE THE RIDER EXPERIENCE SAFER AND MORE JOYFUL

Safety in numbers

Enhanced visibility

Another reason to ride instead of drive

Spontaneous or planned connections

Creating joy for All Ages and Abilities

ABOUT US


Our mission is to transform how we move - and support the wellbeing of the communities we move within.

Our work started as research at the MIT Media Lab. We decided it could have the greatest impact by bringing it to market. Since then, we have been a part of the MIT DesignX accelerator program, built out our team, and we’ve redesigned our initial prototypes as products using cutting-edge mesh communication technology.

OUR TEAM

We are a group of urban planners, micromobility experts, researchers, and engineers innovating and advocating for livable streets and cities. We believe in a world where the future of mobility will be sustainable, equitable, and joyful.
