Company focus : Content wise

Novelab creates interactive and immersive experiences and installations. Novelab mainly works in the areas of culture, entertainment and communication. We are a cross-over between a technological start-up and a content creator in the sense that most of our projects involve some degree of technology combined with a special care for narration and story developments. Novelab develops or produces original projects like Type:Rider (mobile game), Notes on Blindness (Gear VR), Kinoscope - a VR journey into the world of cinema (YouTube & Gear VR), Zaha Hadid Vr Experiences, Unrest VR, etc.

Company focus : Tech wise

AudioGaming creates new tools that help sound designers & musicians reach astonishing creative results faster. Our novel hybrid synthesis approach gives you more features and infinite control over your sound and music. Products may be discovered at lesound.io In parallel of this activity related to audio, Novelab “productises” some of the technologies we develop specifically for projects. For example, for our latest project Unrest VR we developed an interactive story manager that we plan to release as standalone plug-in for environments like unity3D or unreal.
