What we make

We make software that helps you easily animate anything. Our products are used by kids at home, at schools, and in after school programs – for both fun and education. Our apps promote creativity, and enable integration of art and technology into a variety of academic subjects.

We also collaborate with clients to develop software solutions for their creative needs, from experiential art installations to educational games. We design the product, provide the visuals and write the code. We work with any tech including mobile, AR, VR, computer vision, and we design in 2D and 3D.
