Only nerds and evil geniuses have labs. Luckily, We've
got both.


We’re more than a group of nerds breaking the latest gadgets. We live and breathe discovery and we disrupt conventions. We challege everything.


This is where we turn “Can we do that?” into “We just did.” We test and retest the concept to uncover new value beyond its original application.


Where most labs just ideate and present, we take it a step further and deliver the goods in any format from show-stopping to jaw-dropping.

We are thinkers, builders, designers, developers,
leaders, dreamers, doers,

Invent, Innovate, Implement

We take new inventions and begin innovating. We implement a quick-turnaround solution and go-to-market strategies, because the proof is in the prototype.

And of course, we're going to show off a little

of it, we have a business
plan for it.


Question Everything. Fail Fast. Iterate Often. This is the first part of a three-series blog that will dive into the ethos of the Labs here at Chaotic Moon. This round, we’ll focus on “Question Everything.” But first, a primer. Most people ask what Labs is all about when they first hear of it, and then the semantic struggle begins. For brevity, it’s sometimes referred to as a Research & Development Lab, though even then it comes with the caveat that we’re really an RD&E Lab (E for execution…another blog on that). Other times we hear “hardware/software integration” which is true, but not complete either. I prefer to describe us as an emerging technologies lab—a team of creatives, engineers, and thinkers that are focused on discovering new technologies and products, creating software to complement them, and innovating software and hardware solutions for clients. All of this is important as it lays ...
