Combining principles of interaction design and engineering with story and technology for unique client solutions
IoT – Hardware Development
Hardware is hard. Current trends in low-power communications and powerful processors are opening up countless opportunities for hardware development. We focus on modeling the user experience and product architecture of hardware devices, as well as prototyping solutions before moving to serial manufacturing.
Machine Learning / AI
Machine learning, big data, and artificial intelligence are becoming intertwined in many products from automobiles to web apps. We provide consulting on business model development and data science pipeline implementatino with big data and algorithm applications as well as designing products which leverage machine learning approaches.
Virtual / Augmented Reality
VR and AR development can take many forms, from monosomic 360 video to mixed reality holograph or 3D scan capture, to application development. Additionally 3D animation and generative design are important aspects of building engaging immersive experiences.
As part of our innovation lab design, we experiment with and master new technologies, which we then offer as services and consulting to clients, with our competencies based on the latest technology trends.
We look at the latest technologies from a product viewpoint. We often develop prdouct architecure road-maps and business model sketches to contexualize the integration of new technolgies in society.
When we identity the potential for an experiment to become self-sustaining entity we incubate product development internally and consider creating new spin-offs so they can be scaled as new companies.
Recently, I visited Detroit, Michigan with the Structure Sensor and my iPad mini. During this trip, I wanted to visit the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) and see how I could capture works of art with a 3D scanner as a normal visitor. Since I grew up in Michigan, the...
Technology trends in 3D modeling and scanning are making it easier to create 3D models to include in mixed-reality, Augmented Reality (AR) games or Virtual Reality (VR) experiences. I’ve been experimenting with different 3D scanning technologies and workflows for...
The Zurich Frontend Conference is a wonderful event focused on design and technology in Zurich. The emphasis is on visual and web design but often topics like backbone.js, responsive web, typography, and user experience easily come up in conversations and associated...
We're happy to announce that we'll be holding a workshop on location-based mobile app and interactive installation design at the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) this Sept. in Munich, Germany. The workshop on Designing Location-Based...
With a technical background in materials science and mechanical engineering, and a natural focus towards product and user experience design, I'm often not able to bring all my worlds together in one focus area. That's why I love talking about trends in wearable sensor...
Continuous learning and education are key to building relevant products and services, we actively participate in and contribute to conferences and hackathons to learn, spread knowledge, and develop partnerships.
We actively engage in hackathons as mentors and participants. We love to teach and to learn from others in the hackathon format.
We give presentations and workshops at various conferences, including focused in design, 360/VR, IoT, wearable sensors, and storytelling.
We both organize and support community events including Ignite Zurich and Startup Grind Zurich.
