SEATTLE– A rising star in the Seattle tech scene, nanotechnology innovator Somalytics Inc., announced today it has signed a lease for a new office in Redmond, which will be its global headquarters and manufacturing facility for producing the world’s smallest nano-based capacitive sensor. The company’s new address is 2525 152nd Ave. NE, Redmond, Washington 98052.
“We are thankful for the great support from CoMotion, University of Washington’s collaborative innovation hub, which provided us with a strong foundation from which to launch,” said Barbara Barclay, CEO of Somalytics. “After years of research and months of product development, our new capacitive paper-based sensors are now ready for mass manufacturing. This is a major milestone for us in our growth journey, and we are thankful to our team for their talent and incredibly hard work that has made it possible.”
The patent-pending carbon-nanotube paper composite (CPC™) capacitive sensors, which can ‘feel’ human presence, will revolutionize human-machine interfaces, wellness monitoring and safety applications. Eye tracking, consumer electronics, the Internet of Things, health and wellness, and transportation are just a few of the industry categories that will be transformed by Somalytics’ eye, gesture, touch and fluid monitoring sensors.
Since spinning out of the University of Washington in November 2021, with support from hard science investment firm IP Group Inc., Somalytics has quickly gained national recognition for its innovative technology. The company was recently featured in the Summer 2022 issue of Fast Company as one of 13 finalists On the Rise. Also, in January at CES 2022, Somalytics was celebrated as a Best in Show from Android Central and was covered by Wired, ZDNet, Printed Electronics World, Innovation in Textiles and others.
