Investor meetings

Amsterdam

Amsterdam impressed us a lot. We spend 3 days there but really had just one day to take the stroll around the city.

It's trade culture was visible everywhere - both in our conversations with business partners and in the city itself. We tried famous fries, herring rolls and local beer.

Hyperdome for DHL

Warsaw

Another incredible adventure on the outskirts of Warsaw, next door to the airport terminal. This is where DHL Express were opening their new terminal.

DW Group event agency commissioned the creation of the 5 minute long fulldome 3D space presentation that was the key presenation of the event. Freedomes supplied large dome hosting over 400 guests and the technical support was done by the Ves agency.

“Your work was a kind of dream come true. Beautiful production, emotions, tears, delight.”
Małgorzata Pietruch / DW Group event agency

Hyperdome launch

Szczecin

First appearance of the interactive dome happened on the Lastadia Island in Szczecin where we also have our R&D office.

Team went berserk to make sure the installation works perfect and the citizens were given unique chance to design their vision of the future Lastadia inside. It happened in the middle of the largest architecture contest for the new Lastadia urban project.

We've used a lot of technology inside and when it was finished we had to chill out.

MIT Hubweek

Boston

We were invited by MIT to showcase our Hyperdome technology developed with the dome producer Freedomes at the Hubweek event taking place in the center of Boston.

Event lined up with our job for Boston Globe who used our fulldome technology to showcase the history of their newspaper in the incredible presentation produced by the Inphantry Agency.

David accompanied the Freedomes team to make sure the software works perfect.

Smart City tour

Level 39 London

London is one of the most vibrant locations when it comes to our AR & VR industry.

Pastguide launch

Krakow

Our Pastguide app was launched in Kraków in august 2016 with the Historic Museum of Krakow who hosted the conference and media event.

It attracted a lot of media attention and the fact that the app visualised lost architecture on the main town square contributed to nearly 2000 downloads of the beta app build.

Our team bravely withstood all questions and kept focus. When done they went for a scenic walk in search of local tastes and flavours.

Culture

Special occasions

Szczecin office

Christmas parties, Birthdays, Work anniversaries, investment rounds, project finales, app release or ... football championships - this all deserves good food and even better alcohol.

And what is more thrilling than having a beer and large pack of crisps in the good company.

Thursday Brunch

Szczecin

IT today is dominated by fitness and gym culture. We promote it in the company with a fridge full of fruits. But sometimes enough is enough and it's usually every thursday 😉
