dreikant - industrial product design


Smart-Bowl Ogilvy Napf und Halsband für Hunde


Modern sensors and chips are increasingly enabling machines, goods and everyday objects to communicate with each other. This results in completely new functions and applications. The "Internet of Things" allows your company to fulfil customer wishes and expectations even in the digital world. The product design agency dreikant develops digital concepts and solutions for various industries and thus connects online and offline worlds.


Using the latest technology, such as Raspberry PI or Arduino systems, prototypes of digital applications can be built cost-effectively. In this way, a proof of concept can be presented in the early development phase and further development can be controlled more precisely. Existing products can be expanded or completely new and disruptive business models can be developed.
