The Cyborg Foundation is a global organization that promotes research and projects that apply technology to the human body in order to extend or create new senses and increase range of perceptions.
The US based Cyborg Foundation has a global focus and has formed partnerships with institutions, educational facilities and governments around the world.
Studies to help people living with limitations to extend their senses through the integration of technology into the body.
The Cyborg Foundation does not issue grants to individuals and organizations. The foundation collaborates and works in partnership with institutions, educational facilities and government groups to drive research and development in the field of cybernetics.
Since its founding the Cyborg Foundation has undertaken several exciting projects in partnership with groups all over the world.
The Cyborg Foundation was founded in 2010 by co-founders Neil Harbisson and his partner Moon Ribas. Neil Harbisson was born achromatopsia, meaning he can only see in black and white. In 2004 Harbisson and Adam Montandon developed the Eyeborg, an antenna sensor that converted colors to sound frequencies. The antenna was connected inside Harbisson’s skull to the occipital bone. Since that point Neil Harbisson has helped humans to become cyborgs while raising public awareness and acceptance through art.
