Octo23 is an international innovation consulting firm focused on the development of new technologies in clean energy, clean water, ocean conservation, and robotics. Octo23 develops elegant solutions to difficult problems.

The firm’s broad expertise works on a range of projects from:

  • as “low-tech” as a two cent temperature indicator for solar water disinfection (SoDIS), to as “high-tech,” as a 3D Modular Electronics system that allows users to customize their own electronic devices, like “Electronic LEGOs”;
  • the world’s first demonstrated non-turbine wind energy generator;
  • the MicroBelt™ capable of harvesting milli-Watts of power, enough to power a wireless sensor and,
  • a light based underwater voice communication system for SCUBA divers and snorkelers.
