Software engineer & Audio architect
Tim is fascinated by technology since young. He dreamed of being an inventor and also developed a passion for music. This is why he decided to study Music Technology at the Utrecht School of Arts. Here, he honed his skills in music production, programming and electronics. And - maybe even more important - this is where Tim developed a more crystallised view on technology.
Tim believes technology has the power to mesmerize people, as a kind of magic. After graduating, Tim started his career with this philosophy in mind.
AR software engineer
Theo is a software engineer with a portfolio of Augmented Reality projects. Together with his girlfriend Theo founded the software company Platipus.
As early as 2010, he started a project that visualised the information of the local Tourist Information database with the help of Augmented Reality based upon GPS location information. Since then Theo has become a true Augmented Reality enthusiast and worked on developing AR software.
Theo prefers using Metaio technology and is officially registered as a Metaio certified developer. Next to AR Theo develops e-learnings, IOS and Android apps for different clients.
A fine example is the Augmented Reality project he developed for Nissan Europe, who uses it to train their mechanics. This project involved the development of AR on various parts of the interior and exterior of different Nissan models.
Coen studied physics and design, an interesting combination that makes him a designer with both a technical and a creative perspective.
Currently Coen works at Platipus where he supports Theo in the realisation of Augmented Reality projects.
