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 implementation as well as designing products that leverage machine learning approaches.
Virtual / Augmented Reality
Virtual (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) development can take many forms, from monosomic 360/VR 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.

The growth of augmented and virtual reality technologies together with 3D imaging technologies is opening up many avenues for filmmakers and media artists to tell stories and build experiences. Depth cameras in particular offer the ability to easily capture the 3D...
A VR Hackathon The Cineglobe “Storytelling Science”: Oculus Rift Hackathon (http://cineglobe.ch/hackathon/) started this past weekend. It will run until the Fall, with five weekend hackathon events to develop Virtual Reality (VR) film projects based around science and...
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...
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. This supports out philosophy of continuous learning, and we love to support new ideas and prototype solutions via the hackathon format.
We give presentations and conduct workshops at various conferences, including focuses in UX design, 360/VR, IoT, wearable sensors, and storytelling.
We both organize and provide support to startup and community events in the Zurich area, currently including Ignite Zurich and Startup Grind Zurich.
