We are MNT Research. We develop and design at all levels of information technology: electronics, operating systems, applications and networks. We believe that computers should empower people from all walks of life and give you (not corporations) exclusive control over your data — to support your creativity, knowledge work and communication. We help make this a reality by creating our own open hardware, software and wearables. We embrace new and futuristic methods, but we also care deeply about vintage systems and which tricks they can still teach us.
