HOPE Beacon

The HOPE Beacon is a limited edition, hope-measuring gadget designed by Lauren McCarty & HOPE lab.


Not certain if you or others are actually hopeful? The Hope Beacon is a wearable device that measures the hopefulness of NODE attendees. Upon detecting significant hope, the Hope Beacon flashes to alert you and others nearby, so they can engage with you and share in your hopefulness. By simply reflecting your hope to others the Hope Beacon propagates hopefulness and hopeful dialogue throughout the festival.


Get your HOPE beacon in advance or at the HOPE pavilion.
