Nonlinear Labs is focused on building disruptive applications for the post-mobile, ubiquitous computing era where computing is wearable, pervasive and contextual further connecting people, sensors and objects.
Our applications are design-led, human-centered and impact-driven. We use lean startup principles but combine them with the concepts of speculative design fiction and betterness.
