2b3d is an innovation hub that bridges emerging technologies with classical communication disciplines to create unique tech experiences that touch and engage consumers in immersive and substantial ways.

OK so, what do we do?

Our Hub services a number of industries. We work with a broad range of outside professionals giving us intimate insight into each, in order to better understand and hence better build technological solutions.

LET'S TALK
Innovation.

Innovation is everywhere. The challenge lies in how it is used and why. We create innovative solutions from the ground up that fit the industry and client’s needs. Whether it is the rise of mass produced digital avatars or jewelry that speaks, our creative roots and deep knowledge of how technology can be applied allow us to do what most cannot.
Innovate with a purpose, true to the challenges of the moment. It is what separates us from resellers of tech tools.

Integration.

What do you get when you cross a GPS, a magnetometer, a gyroscope, a camera and the Unity game engine? The biggest runaway success of the last year, Pokemon GO!
Innovation is not only creating singular technologies but rather the ability to integrate sometimes off the shelf technologies (Pokemon GO) to create complete new technologies or tools. Our multi disciplinary team of creatives, web developers, electronics engineers, industrial designers and production managers gives us the in-house skill set needed to exploit technology effectively and purposefully to meet real world challenges that cannot be answered with one-size-fits-all solutions.

ResearchELT_BRand Development.

Technology for the sake of technology is a term used often, and for good reason. Demo versions of tools are for internal use. They help us see what can be done, in order for us to complete the job. No tool can be an effective representative of your strategy on demo mode. We have built our own strategy on the idea that each project deserves it own use unique content, software, twist, even if the hardware is the same.

VIRTUAL REALITY

Another booming technology with untold potential. From VR hardware to bespoke software solutions, our relationship with VR sometimes borders on addiction. One of our own internal projects consisted of creating a “Western” style VR shoot ’em up game, where all the cowboys were exact full body digital avatars of the 2B3D team. Needless to say we can create a very robust range of tools in VR!
