On March 8th, 2017 DesignFarm and Factory Berlin joined their efforts to showcase some of the forward-thinking start-ups in design-in-tech:
Shortcut - the digital prosthesis
Founders: Lucas Rex, Maximilian Mahal, David Kaltenbach
Shortcut is a digital wristband that translates phantom hand gestures and planar movements into a wireless computer control. It facilitates a quick re-entry into the profession and unrestricted digital interaction. Shortcut’s mission is to enable „human-machine“ interaction for an affordable price: www.digital-prosthesis.de
Co-creators: Lisa Dannebaum, Francesca Kaes and Rebekka Lauer
C-lab is a software design for the research and management of collections of cultural artifacts. The software provides a virtual workspace that supports interdisciplinary collaboration and allows researchers to engage with collection objects, to organize research processes and to share their knowledge. This concept can be potentially applied to other collaborative environments where management of complex information and visualization play a crucial role.
Finally, we celebrated and experienced the sound of dadamachines from Johannes Lohbihler whose Kickstarter campaign is almost ready for take off: www.dadamachines.com
