Dizmo, a Swiss start-up co-founded by serial entrepreneur Mathias Aebi, has developed a new user interface for smart displays. The start-up is running a Kickstarter campaign at the moment. It will help dizmo to go into production.

Dizmo means that you can interact with content in an intuitive and immediate way, visualizing and controlling wireless devices, sensors and controls, bringing all your technology together within the Smart Home. This interface interaction mimics the technology many have come to love in popular media, from CSI to Iron Man, Minority Report and even as far back as 2001: A Space Odyssey. The creative software behind dizmo allows simulations, charts, images, live websites and videos to all coexist and be moved, rotated and interacted with like physical objects on any digital surface.

Developers can use dizmo as a tool to connect applications and services such as Arduino or Rasberry Pi, while those at home can navigate a digital book of recipes to prepare their favorite dish while following friends on Twitter, keeping an eye on the front door webcam and participating in a video call, all on the same touchscreen. dizmo is easy to use and installable on any standard OS such as Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.

The dizmo space is also the ideal environment for workgroup collaboration, whether at home, in the office or an educational environment. By providing an infinite digital space with a zoomable user interface, dizmo unifies the interaction with your various digital applications as well as allowing you to synchronize, move and share dizmos between various devices, across rooms or locations. You can even build your own dizmos and dock dizmos together, allowing technology to communicate and work together in a truly connected digital world.

Currently dizmo is amongst the top software projects on Kickstarter. The team started the Kickstarter campaign two weeks ago and is looking for USD25’000. Friday morning more than 200 backers have already committed more than USD16’000. The campaign runs to 6 March. The product version of the software will be available from June 2014. Dizmo is also available with the 27″ multi-touch display from Planar as a bundle for a limited number of backers.

The core management team of dizmo collectively has more than 100 years’ experience as professionals in the IT industry and has successfully founded several start-ups, such as Internet Access AG, futureLAB Ltd and etoy.

  • Founder, CEO and CTO Matthias Aebi: a serial entrepreneur and investor, passionate software technology pioneer and tech visionary. 
  • Co-founder and CCO Michel Zai: a visual communicator and digital artist, former professor at ECAL in Lausanne and inspirational founder of the world reputed art group etoy.
  • Co-founder and CMO Luigi Mantellassi: a global marketing leader and strategist, who loves connecting people to products through cutting edge technologies, and loves coffee too.
  • Co-founder and COO Eckart Burgwedel: a prominent software development executive, a perfectionist with a background as entrepreneur and consultant, in addition to a law degree.

Essential to the team is the support of Pam Huling, a media executive who has contributed to dizmo since the very early stage of its incubation and continues to do so for all media, communication and partnership activities in the US.
