The HUMO™ Community - Better Together

We want to make the HUMO™ available as widely as possible through a community of customers and partners that will co-create and innovate, to develop a new form of sustainable and practical transport.

Therefore all of the design and technology documents relating to the HUMO™ are available here for you to develop into your own projects however you see fit, with no trademarks, patents or licenses whatsoever. The only proviso being that you subsequently share your own innovations back into the Community for the benefit of all.

So please bookmark this page, and check back frequently as new documents and links will be added all the time.

Read about the HUMO™ Philosophy here.

If you are interested in registering a project, or for more information, please email us now at
