    Every day we do things that haven't been done before and that takes courage. We work best with clients who share this approach - who want to push boundaries, explore possibilities and make great new things happen.

The Somo Innovation Lab is our centre for creativity and inspiration. Here, we showcase the latest pieces of hardware – be it mobile, wearable, printable or flyable – along with the software we’ve built to run on them. It is one way that our environment encapsulates our culture, allowing all of our staff and visitors to embody one of our values: love innovation.
