Ideas Lab is an incubation environment for startups and talents who make Digital Experiences. We explore new ways of using our competences from games, films, sound, 3D and animation to build meaningful experiences that solve big and small challenges.

We want to be the centre for development of digital experiences in Denmark, by opening up our doors to both scientists, startups, talents and established businesses who are interested in developing digital content.

Our startups and talents take things from idea to action – building both prototypes and final products, and we want to invite businesses from all kinds of fields to come join us at Filmby Aarhus.

We aim at opening up this part of Aarhus to anyone who want to investigate and produce digital experiences – whether you come from finance or health care, Ideas Lab has something to offer, because we can work with and understand new technologies across fields.

The Danish Society for Nature Conservation and Ideas Lab got together to work out a digital solution to urgent environmental problems. Watch the video above to see how it went.

MASTER PROJECTS

We’re currently hosting 9 Master Thesis Students from Aarhus University who’re working on their last big assignment. Our students have chosen to develop some sort of a digital product alongside the theoretical paper.

The assignments floats within the digital visual industry, and focuses on digital experiences in many forms. Assignments vary from examining how to create games through participatory design for children, investigating possibilities of designing cinematic film experiences, and considering multimodal board games in learning.

Here are some examples of our projects:

Project First Aid
Mie Thuman and Isabell Deleuran are trying to solve the problem that many young people never get comfortable doing first aid. Using playful designs + Augmented Reality, they hope to make it more accessible for all Danes.

Project LAN
At LAN parties we usually meet to play games, that can be played in separate rooms or countries; like Counter Strike. Simon Milfred is designing a game experience to fit the social context a LAN party is.

Project Esports
Anders Ottendal is trying to find out how to deal with a new type of sports, that is highly commercial but placed in the world of unions. Simon will also be playing with the vlog format, so you’ll be able to follow his process as he documents the entire thing with videos.
