The world of meaningful 3D experiences is here today, it’s not the future. 3D capture technologies such as Structure from Motion (SfM) photogrammetry, laser scanning and structured light scanning are in 2019 fast becoming mainstream.

What Do We provide?
Curate it all…
…food, clothes, garden, music, colours, lights, writing, your room.
Good curating gives meaning to the choices you make when you choose, select and arrange.
It determines the ideas, people and stories you really care about.
