Game-changing off-grid connectivity
How do you communicate when cell service isn’t reliable or available? The challenge was to design a device that would allow users to stay connected even off the grid.
The original goTenna pairs with your smartphone and allows you to text and share your location with other users, providing communication when cell service isn’t reliable or available. The first in a line of products designed by Pensa, we’ve been privileged to work with goTenna since their early days, to help bring their product experience to life.

GoTenna is part disaster relief, part slick smartphone accessory
No service? No problem
GoTenna addresses the needs of users in a variety of different scenarios, from remote outdoor adventures, to overcrowded networks at music festivals, to emergency situations. goTenna creates a decentralized, encripted, peer to peer network.
We designed and engineered the original goTenna to have a paired down and elegant feel with robust and flexible functionality. It weighs in at only 1.8 ounces and has a unique multi-functional strap designed to be clipped in multiple ways to backpacks or other gear.
