Why we created the Untitled Lab. Testing new technologies and prototyping from ideas to MVP

Several months ago came up the idea of creating the Untitled Lab, a space at Untitled Kingdom where our current and future Partners can test new technologies and experiment with new ideas for hardware/software products or services. 

Why did we found Untitled Lab?

The main goal to founding the Untitled Lab is to test technologies that are just around the corner, and to create proof of concepts or prototype in safe conditions.

How do we approach new technological solutions?

Working with our Partners, we improve people's lives and solve their problems. We are focused on the IoT and digital health industries daily, and we advise companies on the verge of business and technology. 

The most important thing is to treat technology only as a tool. At the very beginning, there is a challenge, and then the solution is invented. However, we know that sometimes it is technology that drives ideas, and ideas generate the need to explore new technologies, so we don't want to close in on solutions that we already know well. 

According to the approach of “Experiment. Fail. Learn. Repeat.”, we are focused to test new possibilities and tools, which not yet today, but soon can solve people's health challenges. We don't want to test on the fly, on real projects, but to learn under controlled conditions and gain experience from it. 

From idea to MVP

The Untitled Lab was created to test new ideas and solutions for our Partners, both hardware and software.

In the beginning, we develop a proof of concept that will verify whether the thesis is correct, if there are possibilities to implement the project, and if a given technology can be implemented with available components. We can move on to the prototyping phase if the first tests are successful, and we see a product-market fit.

Thanks to testing in very safe conditions, we can test every, even the craziest idea, where sky is the limit. 

Initial Untitled Lab projects

Because digital health and IoTs are at the center of Untitled Kingdom’s interest, the mission of the Untilted Lab is to help with innovative solutions in order to relieve the burden on the health service and make a real difference to people's lives. 

We have now started testing the AR solution in digital health. Interestingly, although this technology is slowly developing and has not become widespread, it has incredible potential to be used in healthcare. Already with the help of VR and AR remote operations take place, doctors can simulate heart surgery, which significantly affects their education process. 

In another project, we are testing AR/VR solutions for offices, which will help make better use of their space. It will be possible to bring people working remotely to one conference room together with their avatars and give new possibilities of interaction or entertainment.
