Our prototype was featured in the CEO’s opening keynote at AU 2017, and spun out as a plug-in for Fusion 360. Bill Sabram’s engaging and playful research activities gathered user feedback and validated the genesis of a new kind of data-driven, in-product learning tool.

Bill’s brain is a rare and valuable treasure. He has helped us think differently about how elements of gaming, motivation, rewards, and community can be used to enhance an experience in powerful ways.
