Manus Machina believes in open innovation through sharing knowledge and experience. That is why they have developed an open source SDK available to everyone. The possibilities of the Manus are virtually endless and extend far beyond virtual reality. It can be programmed to interact with all smart devices, such as drones or robots. They are currently working together with their partners to investigate such pplications. In addition, the Manus is compatible with any PC game currently available.
In October 2014 Manus Machina was selected from 10.000 candidates for the Dutch StartupBootcamp HighTechXL, together with eleven other participants. The program helped Manus Machina accelerate and build their business in just three months. After the program’s Demo Day in February 2015, the company signed up leading development partners and clients. In addition, it was fully funded at record speed, enabling them to further develop their product.
Since developing their first working prototype in 2014, Manus has been a fast growing company. They have since grown 300 percent and developed a unctioning product in combination with an open-source SDK.
