Empowering the Humber region with smart technology.

What we do

About Us

We're Creative

We are building networks, Internet of Things (IoT) devices and learning materials to help our community understand and use technology.

We're a Community

We are a Community Interest Company (CIC). This means that any profits that we make are applied to our objectives.

We're Professional

Our members have a wealth of experience at every level and we take pride in our ability to deliver quality soluitons.


We Make Things

We are taking a project-focused approach to building a local technical community.

We strongly believe that by focusing effort on specific areas we can build solutions and experience that will benefit everyone.

Building skills

Making things builds skills. Creating devices, networks and services is a great way to learn at every level.

Empowering data

Presenting data to the community in a useable way will empower them to make informed decisions.

Our Projects

Humber LoRa

We are working to create a low powered radio network that covers the whole region. This will enable the deployment of low cost sensors that can be the basis of a huge range of applications.


The Monitair project is building a network of conncted air quality sensors. We are creating sensor designs, networking infrastructure and visualisation tools to help us understand the local air quality situation.

Build Events

We want to run build events where local people can engage with technology by creating working devices, whether they are building robots to play with or air quality sensors to connect to the Monitair network.
