We Shape The Future

Our beliefs

  • We want to make robotics accessible for everyone, not only for experts.
  • We want to be forerunners and we want to shape the future.
  • We want to inspire with the way we use technology as well as what kinds of opportunities we are able to create.

How it all began

The company was founded in December 2017 by 7 scientific employees of the Faculty of Computer Science of the TU Dresden, who made it their goal to democratize robot programming. As part of their scientific work, they first developed the SmartJacket and further researched about gesture-controlled programming up to the latest product – the TracePen.

Our founders

  • Christian Piechnick (CEO)
  • Dr. Georg Püschel (CTO)
  • Maria Piechnick (Head of Product)
  • Jan Falkenberg (Head of Robotics)
  • Giang Nguyen (Head of Cloud)
  • Sebastian Werner (Head of RND)
  • Christoph Biering (Head of AI)


With our headquarter in Dresden (Germany) and a newly opened office in Tokyo (Japan), we are growing globally. In the future we want to expand further in the SEA Region and plan to launch the latest product – the TracePen – in Summer 2020.
