Through test & development

The test & development lab

In order to be able to study remote interaction, behaviour, technical equipment, and applications, we are currently building a test and development hub in the heart of Sweden, surrounded by mountains and pristine nature – in the town of Östersund, Jämtland. Since people move to this part of the world because of the lifestyle and proximity to nature, we couldn’t think of a better place to develop the next generation of tools and practices for remote work. Together with our collaboration partners, we will offer a wide variety of possibilities for efficient remote collaboration and interaction. The test lab will open in Autumn 2021.
