Aweigh is an open-source navigation technology that does not rely on satellites: it is instead inspired by the mapping of celestial bodies and the polarized vision of insects. Ancient seafarers and desert ants alike use universally accessible skylight to organize, orient, and place themselves in the world. The project aims to learn from the past and from the microscopic to re-position individuals in the contemporary technological landscape.​ It builds on current hacker culture to update the design of ubiquitous devices, with the goal of opening modern technologies to means of modification, dissemination, and self-determination.
