We are

a team of researchers

We investigate large surfaces, create new interaction techniques, develop fancy prototypes, and change the world for the better – at least we try ;). We deal with software, hardware, prototyping, fabrication and we love coffee and cake.

We are

situated in Hagenberg

Inspiring nature. This is one term that describes our surroundings. We are part of the University of the Applied Sciences Upper Austria, and are located at the Campus Hagenberg. You can find our office at FH 3 Building.

We love

crazy ideas

The best ideas come from a diverse, interdisciplinary team. We like to tinker and stay curious. If you are interested in working with us, we are always open for new ideas.
