Context-aware physical spaces
make sense of our reality.
The open source model
makes sense for their reality.

What?

Open source is a model where the source code and documentation for a product is made freely available for possible modification and redistribution.

We make ours freely available on our GitHub.

Why?

Open source is the only model which can foster the emergence and evolution of ubiquitous, interoperable context-aware physical spaces.

It's as simple as that.

How?

Open source software is distributed under a license. Ours is distributed under the permissive MIT License, while any software dependencies are distributed under the same, or a compatible, license.

Questions?

  No   We believe that your data is your data, and that context-aware physical spaces should unlock the value of the data you choose to share. How you choose to share your data is up to you.

  No   The MIT License is a permissive (non-copyleft) license which guarantees the freedoms to use, modify and redistribute while permitting proprietary derivative works under different licensing terms. A copyleft license, such as GPL, would instead restrict derivate works to the same license, in order to perpetuate the guarantee of these freedoms.

  No   The MIT License serves to guarantee you freedoms. Artificially imposing rent-seeking constraints is most certainly not our philosophy. Discover the business of open source if you're curious to learn how we make money.
