Exipple Studio was founded in 2011, as a User Experience design and technology company. Their mission was to create intuitive, enjoyable and straightforward experiences- and that is how the name Exipple was created: make EXperiences sImPLE.
Meanwhile a startup, based in Barcelona called “Fezoo Labs” created “Gestoos”, a software for gestural recognition and interaction.
Exipple fell in love with Gestoos and believed in its potential, decided to invest in Fezoo and acquired 30% of the company. The companies started collaborating on their projects, with the Gestoos technology included in their offering. Consequently, in 2016 Exipple absorbed Gestoos, evolving the product into the first narrow Artificial Intelligence Platform that is able to understand human behavior in specific contexts.
Gestoos just won the 2nd prize in the CISCO Innovation Grand Challenge.
They have been selected out of a total of 5718 start ups.
Gestoos is also a finalist in the EIT Digital Challenge. They will be competing in the sector “Digital Industry” on Novemner 30th in Helsinki.
The company is planning to flip to the US over the next year and increase the number of the users from 2 millions to 200 millions.
Such plans sound quite promising, and Ardas team wishes a great success to Gestoos!
