Building the engine for creativity
The engine for creativity

We are designing software for next-generation hardware: AI chips, AR/VR displayers, and HD camera sensors. We believe we can make desktop software that is both 10x more powerful and 10x easier to use, by offloading more intellectual work to AI, using a camera to take in continuous input from the user, and using a large AR screen to display more information.

We believe desktop software is stuck in the past. The basic structure of the popular tools haven't changed much since the mid-1990s, when computers were only owned by a small proportion of households and businesses. Even today, software usage barely shows up as having boosted productivity, outside of specialized software companies.

We make currently an AI-assisted video-editing app for iPhone aimed at independent businesses. We are aiming to release this application on next-gen hardware in 2020, bundled as a complete video production device.

Our Interests
  • Close to the metal
    We believe in paying attention to low-level code and application logic, and not the mess in the middle. Amongst other things, we are big fans of Swift.
  • Improved human-machine interface
    We are using HD user-facing camera sensors and machine learning, to create interfaces that learn to adapt to their users.
  • For small and medium-sized organizations
    The biggest users of next-gen software will be the small and medium-sized organizations that don't have the resources to use existing desktop tools.
  • Cutting-edge hardware
    Using novel chips, displays, sensors and hardware acceleration to get the exact performance improvements we want.
  • Creative & multimedia AI
    Taking inspiration from existing creative and media industries to help build artificial creative intelligence.
