We needed a camera to take videos of ultrafast laser plasma interactions at trillions of frames per second. The camera we needed didn’t exist, so we had to invent one. When we realized that our technology could also be used for hyperspectral imaging, we focused all our efforts on seeing the invisible.

As it turns out our cameras can address most critical problems in computer vision. We couldn’t help but start a company. We wanted the world to have access to our technology as soon as possible.

Our new headquarters in Oxfordshire feature custom labs and collaborative workspaces, complete with areas for social lunches and after-work drinks. Our remote working colleagues offer a diverse and refreshing perspective from as far wide as Taiwan and Scotland.

We’ve been generously backed by Octopus Ventures, Oxford Sciences Enterprises, Foresight Williams (of Formula 1 fame), Oxford University, and Outsized Ventures. Our angel investors include Robert Swann, Max Hodak, and Robert Sansom.
