NASHUA, NH – June 18th, 2018 – Founder of Cyborg, Tim Near, was one of 11 startups presenting their brilliant entrepreneurial pitches at the Alpha Loft Startup Shindig in Manchester on May 31st.The Startup Shindig is part of the Accelerate NH cohort – encouraging participation in the New Hampshire startup ecosystem.

Cyborg, Inc is reimagining activity with a gamified app that converts your movement into a score, a digital fitness coach you can talk to, and bio-assisting wearables to help you go faster and farther than you ever dreamed possible. At this event Near presented the HALO, a creation incorporating fitness and gravity. “HALO is a device that connects your body to drone technology to partially negate the forces of gravity. With HALO, you’ll be able to run as fast as an Olympian and bound over obstacles simulating other gravitational environments, like Mars” says Near.

Near teamed up with Rapid, a Protolabs Company during the prototype and development process. He chose Rapid for their trusted quality and speed. Near stated, “There is no instruction manual for what we’re doing, it’s never been done before. When you’re taking on a task that ambitious, the quality of the workmanship from your vendors is the last thing you want to be thinking about. With Rapid, we entered the relationship with the confidence of knowing the parts would be right the first time so we can focus on development.”

“Cyborg’s mission is to help our customers reimagine activity and redefine themselves. HALO and our other products will pave the way for exercise to be engaging. Rather than thinking of it as a chore, it will become an exhilarating and empowering experience. That’s the future we’re building” says Near.
