INTERNET OF THINGS CONSULTING

In the Internet of Things vision, objects are connected and communicate with each other sharing information, performing tasks and sensing the world.

INNOVATION WORKSHOPS

LABS organizes innovation workshops aimed at shaping powerful ideas that can be used to build new business value and to support innovation practice within companies. Innovation Workshops range from business opportunities identification and strategy definition to creative envisioning and experience prototyping. The Innovation Workshops can be structured to join forces with both THINGS staff and teams from an individual company, or to assemble cross-company working groups.

DISCOVERY DAY

We work a full day with the company management to explore business needs and opportunities and to build a strategic scenario of business innovation.

INNOVATION WORKSHOP

We run workshops bringing together clients in a multidisciplinary team to envision innovative design concepts of products and services. The outcomes of a workshop are a number of different product/service ideas focused on specific business needs that can be further developed for brand communication or design investigation purposes. In a workshop are created the first versions of new interactive products and services. The Innovation Workshop goes on for 2 days.

HACKING LAB

We run workshops with clients starting with idea generation and closing with rapid prototyping. We set up a lab for building interactive mock-ups. Experience prototypes are the best way to evaluate a new product or service idea with stakeholders and potential users. An Hack Studio usually lasts 4-5 days.

RESEARCH INNOVATION WORKSHOP

Before the meeting we explore consumer trends on a specific target audience then we lead the design workshop with the client to stimulate idea generation, after it we evaluate feedbacks from the selected concept ideas on the same audience.
