LEADING THE AUGMENTED REALITY REVOLUTION
It all began over 2,200 years ago
It all began over 2,200 years ago in ancient Greece. Historians still to this day debate on who invented the device, some say Archimedes and some say Posidonius. But what we know for sure, it is the oldest analogical computer in humankind’s history. It was found at the edge of the Aegean sea, near the island of Antikythera where the devices take its name from in November 1901.
It wasn’t until the 1970’s and with the help of X-Ray imaging, over 70 years after the device was discovered did they unearth the true function of the device. The Antikytera Mechanism is the world’s first analogical computer, used to predict the position of the planets which helped them manage dates and time.
Our name reflects a culture of innovation
With this device they could time every four years to make sure they didn’t miss the Olympics, they knew when solar eclipses would occur and most importantly you could remember your partners birthday!
All this was created over 2000 years ago, we admire these times of innovation and creativity. Our approach today is modelled from these great thinkers, understand the need of the people and create the technology to match.
