We started our journey as INNOVATIVE STARTUP in early 2016, to then continue as an IT company that deals with research, innovation and development of augmented and mixed reality technologies, image recognition, indoor and outdoor navigation and machine learning. Our offices are located in CATANIA, Rome, MILAN and BRUXELLES but, thanks to the experience and the managerial and technological know-how of our founders, we make use of important collaborations with partners operating in NEW YORK and Los Angeles. Dedication, competence and constant updating are the distinctive features of all members of the different departments (research and development, marketing and content development), which are put INTO GAME every day to create and promote useful, practical and innovative tech solutions.
