The foundation is an institution for the research, creation and promotion of projects related to extending and creating new senses and perceptions by applying technology to the human body.

The mission of the foundation is to help humans become cyborgs, to promote the use of cybernetics as part of the human body and to defend cyborg rights. The foundation believes that some cybernetic extensions should be treated as body parts, not as devices.

Two prominent members are Neil Harbisson and Moon Ribas. Harbisson was born colourblind and now has an implant that allows him to hear colour. Ribas has developed and implanted an online seismic sensor in her elbow which allows her to feel earthquakes through vibrations. They have both used the additional senses and perception that their cybernetics have given them to create art.
