Dibs is a mobile platform for creating, exchanging and collecting trading cards. The twist in Dibs is that you create the trading cards of yourself. You can collect cards of your friends, family and even celebrities. In our team we have two full time members working to create Dibs.

Squid – new Era of moving.
Today we see a need in smart, compact and energy efficient closed vehicle, which could be used in any environment. At the forefront we have protection from any possible factor starting from weather and ending with theft.   
By making Project Squid we are creating a new smart way of transportation that will be used by different categories of people worldwide. We believe that it will bring more sustainable development in the transportation sphere and change our life forever. 
It is possible to implement the idea using technologies that we possess nowadays.  We had an ulterior motive to choose a three-wheel base.  Tricycle is the perfect chassis for the city and countryside transport, because it is compact, light and stable.  Therefore, it will have more advantages in the future development, comparing with cars and bicycles. Wide usage of the advanced technologies will transform a simple tricycle into a smart vehicle. Ii is no more a vehicle, but an extension of your body. Moreover it will cover and protect driver.
  • Convenient design will protect driver from the environmental and weather impacts. So, he/she will be able to dress in anything he/she wishes without a fear to be frozen or become wet.
  • Squid tricycle will be created using hybrid base, which means electric engine combined with classic pedal rod. To make it more efficient we will be able to create a system of intelligent charging. Tricycle will be working on li-ion battery which consists from thousands clusters. Electric power from the active zone of the battery will be moving the vehicle, while recuperation system will charge inactive zones of battery. Smart computer control unit plays the most important role in whole process, by analyzing processes and recharge clusters in more efficient way.
  • Squid trike is not about insensitive technologies; it is all about interaction with the user. Every user of our product/service will be able to communicate the vehicle and any person he/she wants, while driving it. It opens a vide horizons of work while riding.
  • Touch screen embed in the steering wheel will make communication and driving process more easier.
  • Light and simple construction will be easy to maintain and take care of. It provides great maneuverability in the city traffic with ability to use cycle paths, sidewalks and roads. 
We understand that traditional ways of marketing are not relevant any more. That is why we will be using revolutionary service subscription scheme. It assumes that clients will not need to own those tricycles to ride them. To become user of our system client will need to be subscribed on it and hence have a key card. Then user of our system will be able to ride any of our spare vehicles according with his/her subscription balance. We are also planning to build a wide network and expand it as wide as possible. 
Concerning the investments and implementation processes, we have created efficient action plan and design approach. We are tightly cooperating with a great number of different specialists in pursuit to embody this project. 
Everything indicates that Project Squid has extensive future potential, the main reason for it – we are not building only one product but also we are also creating a whole industry of light, energy efficient traffic.

The aim of current project is to develop innovative tracking system. Plenty of valuable movable assets, particularly bicycles, cars, boats, requires control and monitoring. The worst thing can happen to them is to be stolen, which unfortunately happens on a regular base. However, general control required at personal and corporate activities too.
The purpose of the project is to offer customers easy-setup system to track their assets with friendly interaction and rich eco-system around it. The system should keep ideology of simplicity, where each core feature in not deeper than 3 steps.
Development started autumn, 2014. For this moment plenty of work done: the problems and needs defined, strategy developed, prototypes assembled, application and server background written. All this done using private resources of team members.
Final product is multipurpose tracking system implemented cutting-edge technology. It makes possible to track wide range of movable assets (bicycles, boats, etc.) collecting the related data, such as routes, distances, time consumption, etc. It makes the use more safe and efficient. System interacts with personal computers, smartphones. Targeted customers are the privates and companies.
Having lot of preparations done, company needs financial support, which is crucial for rapid launch product on the markets. Final product development required. Estimated time to launch the mass production is around 4 months.
Having plenty of preparations done, final product development required to start the mass production. The process of development consist of three main parts:
  • Finalize hardware development. Develop electronic hardware and related firmware from prototype to stable and ready for mass production.
  • Finalize software development. Develop server, PC and smartphone software and applications from prototype to stable and ready for mass production.
  • Finalize shell development. Develop shell of the product from prototype to ready for mass production.

Digital Health Support

Our team is developing digital tools in order to support self-care. The tools are primarily suitable for clients caring for themselves in different ways at home, e.g. asthmatics and insulin diabetics. Inadequate medical care and dosing technique can increase human suffering, at the same time potentially increasing health care costs through growing medical expenses and unnecessary visits to the doctor. One of these digital tools is a video-assisted program that displays the necessary instruments, shows the correct technique and actually performs the procedure together with the client, whose performance is also recorded on video so that it can - if desired - be forwarded for professional assessment. 
The program is also suitable for monitoring different health-related measurements like blood sugar levels and PEF monitoring.  The guidance is based on official care instructions derived from scientific knowledge and research. What is essential is that the guidance is executed by simulating a real live situation in a way that gives the client the feeling of a real instructor being present, like a so-called fellow traveler.

Firetail Games

Firetail Games is an independent Game Studio, trying to fill in the gaps of the mobile game industry. Do you still remember the theme from Super Mario? Do you still remember the character Crash Bandicoot? We think mobile experiences in their current form aren't as memorable experiences as the games we used to play in our childhood.
A big amount of children and young pople are playing on mobile as their main gaming platform, and they prefer it over other systems. We want to put as much effort in all the aspects of the game as was put back in the days into games when we were young, while keeping the approachability and simplified gameplay mechanics required for mobile.
We are making last minute fine tunements to our debut title called Trippy Viking, and we have several games already under development.
Even if we have dedicated roles in our team, all of us are multi talented which makes us a really strong group. We are fully capable of taking care of most of the aspects required in development and maintaining a healthy business. We are Firetail Games and we aim for change.
