Our Story 

We are Nada, Catherine, Sequoia and Paige.

We are developing a new biomaterial that can generate electricity from the humidity in the air, using pili: the protein nanowires from Geobacter Sulfurreducens.

Our vision is of a radically sustainable energy future, where our power generation and our electronics are growable and compostable. Where our electronic devices have a new materiality, complex, textured, and perhaps even alive.

That’s the idea behind Electric Skin: 
A Self-Powering Material,
Beautiful, Growable, Compostable.
