HP Sprout
case study

HP Sprout

Overview

HP's vision is to create technology that makes life better for everyone, everywhere — every person, every organization, and every community around the globe. This vision is executed through a wide range of hardware, software and digital services.

Challenge

HP needed a way to use the technologies they had developed to match the widespread use of touch and gesture led interactions, and the rise of affordable 3D printing. They wanted to change the way that interaction took place between 2D and 3D, and between physical and digital worlds. This new paradigm needed to be intuitive and efficient across educational, retail, and industrial domains.

Outcome

Digitalist collaborated with HP to produce Sprout: a unique hardware and software ecosystem that blends joyful, intuitive tactile interactions with 2D and 3D scanning and modelling. We provided a full suite of services, including UX design, usability testing, visual design, web and software development user guides, and proprietary applications.

Sprout launched in 2014 and won Best of Show at CES 2015 for its ability enable creative processes through a seamless blend of physical and digital content.
