The Ambient Devices Mission

With Ambient the physical environment becomes an interface to digital information rendered as subtle changes in form, movement, sound, color or light.

Current information interfaces are either interruptive or too detailed.

For the first time in history, ubiquitous wireless networks can affordably deliver digital information anytime, anywhere. The result for most of us is cacophony. Ambient wants to make the world calmer.

Some information requires constant awareness.

For some it's the status of their portfolio, or the health of an aging parent. Others want to know if their friends are online, the upcoming weather, the score of a game, if the fish are biting, or if there's heavy traffic on their drive home. These are examples of information that is neither worthy of interrupt (push), nor worthy of investing time (pull). This type of information should be glanceable, like a clock or barometer. We call this ambient information, and we've created the technology to deliver it.

Our Products

Ambient Devices provides a complete solution to offer wireless products to consumers that make tangible interfaces to digital information. Today, this solution includes: the Ambient Information Network™-a back-end service delivery infrastructure and wireless network; and the Ambient Device Design™-a set of hardware specifications to turn everyday objects (like pens, watches, and clocks) into glanceable wireless information devices, customized and branded by product companies.

Using patented processes developed at Ambient and MIT Media Lab, the Ambient platform aggregates, scrubs, packetizes, transmits, and decodes data. Our standards allow development of technology that no longer feels like technology. This "polite technology" requires no computer or technical infrastructure to operate, allowing the technology to be transparent.

Our Team

The Ambient team has deep experience in entrepreneurship, business operations, technology and customer psychology.

Life at Ambient Devices

We offer an exciting and dynamic work environment with very easy access to the T. We are an early-stage company that values innovation, creativity, and hard work -- all within a balanced lifestyle.
