About us

Supermechanical brings everyday home objects into the digital age to ease modern worries. Founded in 2011, Supermechanical sprung out of designer/software developer John Kestner's graduate work at the MIT Media Lab's Information Ecology research group, where he explored ways to incorporate connectivity into the physical interfaces of everyday objects. We're designer-engineers who have appeared in all your favorite media, from the New York Times and Metropolis to Wired and Better Homes & Gardens.


We've got extensive experience designing, developing and manufacturing physical/digital products. We can help with proof-of-concept prototypes to product strategy to production code, and anything in between—contact us.
