Emerging Technology

We like to keep an eye on what’s new, next, and noteworthy.

It’s a way for us to help your business stay ahead of the competition. But we do more than simply watch from the sidelines—we can help you bring your ideas to life

Bringing Emerging Technology to Life

Voice, AR, VR, and MR

Our strategists, designers, and developers are able to help you craft a technology roadmap for the next five weeks, five months, or five years. We’ll help your organization understand the best possible use cases for everything from voice and augmented reality (AR) to virtual and mixed reality (VR/MR).

Need more than just a roadmap? Want to go straight to market? We can help you. We’re up to speed on the latest hardware and software needed to make something real—from proof of concept to finished product.

Voice and Hands-Free

Hands-free Interactions

Whether you’re knuckles deep in pizza dough or 50 feet up a telephone pole, there are times when you simply can’t tap a phone screen to get the info you need. Voice interactions keep things simple, allowing the user to free up their hands and eyes for other important tasks. We help companies by integrating hands-free interactions into existing mobile applications, building voice-only apps for Alexa and Google Home, and even building apps for hands-free headsets like Google Glass Enterprise Edition, the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses, or the Realwear HMT-1.

Augmented and Mixed Reality

ARKit and ARCore

Is this product spec’d to tolerance? Will that couch really fit in my living room? Having a way to accurately measure shape, scale, size, and proximity can improve efficiency by preventing mistakes and user errors. Using augmented and mixed reality, we build experiences that allow the user to visualize data in three dimensions, increasing realism and showcasing possibilities.
From handset experiences built with ARKit and ARCore to headset-based experiences built for the Microsoft Hololens and DAQRI Smart Glasses, we help companies increase efficiency and productivity using AR and MR visualizations.

Virtual Reality

Immersive Media

Immersion gives a user a true sense of presence, making them feel as though they are “really there.” Presence forms experiential memories in ways that simply aren’t possible with traditional 2D media. The sense of realistic scale, shape, size, and texture are why virtual reality is such an impactful tool for training, design, and data visualization in fields such as architecture, manufacturing, healthcare, and education. We help companies build immersive experiences on such platforms as Oculus Go, Gear VR, Google Daydream, and the HTC Vive. From concepting and UX design to full stack development in native or Unity, we help make virtual tools a reality.
