ThingM is a device studio. We design and manufacture ubiquitous computing / Internet of Things products that combine user experience design expertise with a deep knowledge of cutting-edge technologies. We create useful tools for designers and innovative products for everyone else.

Our specialty is making everyday things from the near future.

ThingM principals Mike Kuniavsky and Tod E. Kurt are leading experts in the fields of hardware and software user experience, web technology development and consumer robotics. They have been collaborating on projects since 1994, when they created, one of the earliest e-commerce web sites, which launched two months before

Our expertise with agile and flexible development strategies, bold technology choices and innovative user-centered design serves as a framework for all ThingM projects.

We prefer to explore ideas first without the constraints of technological limitations, before we create technologies to address those limitations. Our Technology SketchesTM document that process, the kinds of ideas we have, and how we develop them.
