Developing 3D content is time consuming and difficult. No matter if you’re working on the next blockbuster game, a thrilling VR experience, a casual mobile game or a stunning architectural visualization. To get the project to render smoothly it’s quite common for 3D artists to optimize previously created 3D assets by removing polygons or merging multiple assets to reduce the amount of draw calls necessary for a scene.
InstaLOD helps you save both time and money by automating the cumbersome optimization process involved in making your next project a success.
Jooki is the world’s first smart jukebox specially designed for kids. It is operated by the child using its toys, not by the parents with their smartphones. At the crossroads between iPod, Sonos and Skylanders, Jooki is designed for ages 3 and up. It develops creativity and imagination in kids, through music and stories, away from screens. The toy interface makes Jooki very easy to use. It functions without a smartphone or tablet. Children enjoy music in a safe and ad-free environment with no risk entering inappropriate websites. Children operate Jooki by putting “Stars” on it. They are figurines and tokens that act as physical bookmarks for digital audio. Each toy has an NFC chip that links to a playlist, podcast or web-stream. Parents manage what their children listen to by way of an app used to upload music to Jooki and link Stars.

Knitnet is a disruptive mechanism in the knitting world which would: reinvigorate the craft, using a play and learn approach (B2C); Optimize industrial knitting processes by minimizing resources costs and maximizing a fast go to market mechanism; Enable mass customization in fashion and design.

Knitnet uses these principles to connect the tactile world of hand knitting to the digital world of gestures and data visualization. Based on a complex algorithm Knitnet’s smart knitting needles record knitting gestures and translate them into live knitting instructions which guide B2C users (on a connected app) how to knit and can also turn the knitting gestures into industrial machine code (B2B). Knitnet is a one-stop-shop, where users of all segments can record and trade in knitting instructions and supplies.
