Wearables are expected to be the next evolutionary step into virtuality. They aim to engage us in digital experiences, letting us immerse ourselves in a world that isn’t real, pulling us away from the present, our own bodies and our own consciousness. At the same time, technology has the potential to enhance our experience of the present. Much the same way that a glass lens can sharpen our perception of the world, other technologies can let us engage in life in a more profound way.
HOS is a manifestation of technology for reality – a trio of devices that enhance our perception of the world and ourselves. They amplify certain states of mind or ways of thinking by stimulating various parts of the brain.

Geckskin™ was formally revealed to the world in February of 2012, with the publication of an article in the journal Advanced Materials. Crosby, Irschick, doctoral candidate Mike Bartlett, and the rest of the research team had unlocked the simple yet elegant gecko secret for adhesion and created a novel technology that is revolutionizing how we attach objects together.

Graphene is a credible starting point for new disruptive technologies across a wide range of fields. It is the thinnest compound known to man at one atom thick, the lightest material known and flexible. It is also impermeable to molecules, and is extremely electrically and thermally conductive It is also a transparent conductor, combining electrical and optical functionalities in an exceptional way.
