Steve Jobs once said, “Humans are not the most mobile among creatures. However, using a bicycle, humans are the most efficient animals to move on their energy alone. In other words, bicycles are tools that expand human abilities. And a computer is just a bicycle for intelligence, a tool to extend intelligence,” from "Bicycle for the Mind."
Any action expressed by humans has the potential to evolve in size and strength beyond the human level. Skeletonics will support the evolution of humankind by launching a new era of technology that expands the range and function of our movements.
“Our ultimate objective is to work with people, groups, and companies who share our aspiration to build a new culture together.
- Kento Hiroi, CEO of Skeletonics
