Become an ‘Sponsor’ Patron and support hundreds of collaborators exploring the future of man and machine.
At the convergence of man and machine lies a Centaur Future. But what shape should that convergence take?
In the now, the near, and the next, it’s clear that we’ll be living (working, playing, learning, and creating) with more human-like technology than we’ve ever dealt with before, drawing to mind fear-inducing scenarios that feel straight out of science fiction while simultaneously calling on us to look more closely at what, exactly, makes and keeps us human.
What does this mean for our relationship with technology? For our relationship with our humanity? For how we think about the physical, the digital, and the spaces in between?
Over 10 weeks, we'll explore these very topics far & wide. Mining for signals. Exploring rabbitholes, consulting with experts, speaking with sources. Synthesizing, writing, editing, polishing and publishing into nearly 100 pages of interactive, immersive media on play.
All funds will compensate the project team and community contributors, and fund the RADAR treasury to produce future reports.
Research at RADAR strives to deliver independent, rigorous, and approachable reporting that seeks above all to compensate contributors equitably.

We’re looking for individual and partner patrons to support our exploration;
Patrons are individual supporters who are excited about Our Centaur Future. They believe in high-quality decentralized research and want to be part of making it happen. In an upcoming mint, we’ll launch patron NFTs at two tiers — The Angel & The Advocate.
Partners are like-minded brands, funds, and other organizations that share our interest in bringing this future to life. They’re co-signers invested in the mutual benefit of this work bearing fruit. In the same mint, we’ll offer organizations the opportunity to support RADAR’s research *also* at two tiers: The Supporter & The Sponsor.
We’re looking for contributors
We believe the future is multiplayer, and that the more committed and thoughtful brains, hands, and resources we can put behind a vision of the future, the more likely we’ll all be to manifest — and benefit from — its fruition
While we’re got a great team and community already getting started, we’re also looking for developers to help us build experiments during our centaur future cycle, so if you’ve got technical skills we’re going to be releasing a series of briefs with small bounties! Join us
We’re still looking for research contributors, so if you’re a researcher, futurist or curious human with an interest in the relationship between man and machine, share your skillset and email and we’ll send you an invite to join the community!
