With fresh ideas and a young, energetic team, we bring new interactive experiences to today’s audiences.
Context-Aware Location Assessment
Thoughtfish develops our technologies with support from the European Union and the European Regional Development Fund.
Our products focus on mobile devices and the ways people use them. Smartphones are incredibly intimate objects: we carry them in our bags, place them next to our pillows at night, and even bring them to the bathroom with us.
Our technology supports this close relationship by being able to pinpoint a user’s context. Our apps know when a user is sitting in a park in the rain or walking through snow-covered streets, perhaps in search of a warm drink at a cafe. This knowledge is not just limited to time, place and weather: we can aggregate additional data sources and adapt an app’s response to the context, based on everything from tides and moon phases to topography and vegetation. Wherever the desired data type exists, we can process it into a new experience.
We use this technology in our game Fightlings, while our clients use it for everything from tourism and dining to nightlife and job searches.
Our next project seeks to advance the COALA technology by bringing it to indoor spaces.

WHAT IS A THOUGHTFISH?
Thoughtfish (piscis sapiens sapiens) – see also “thinking-fish”, “idea-fish”; not to be confused with “data-collector”, “byte-scavenger”, or “info-hoarder”.
The Thoughtfish is characterized by a superb adaptability to different habitats. It is agile, intelligent, and feels at home in all kinds of data-streams. While not alone in being sensitive to the ebb and flow of information and surges of data, the Thoughtfish is able to fill a new ecological niche through flexibility and a wealth of ideas. Using a unique organ, the “creative cortex” (which replaces the “dotcom bubble” in conventional fish), it is able to swim just as effectively against the current as with it. For spawning, Thoughtfish prefer broad databases and a good investment climate. Recent research has shown the Thoughtfish to be highly social: to observe one in its natural habitat, try luring it with iconoclastic ideas and innovative technology.
