hi.codes studio transforms everyday problems into solutions of tomorrow.



We are a studio of makers, prototyping enthusiasts, disruption seekers and design thinkers that develops and shapes ideas and products of the future.

We dive into research & development and exploit creative possibilities emerging from the mix of the technology, design, coding, manufacturing and other related fields. User experience and interaction design are at the heart of everything we do, while code translates the technology to useful products.

Long story short, we aim to push digital solutions to physical world and the other way around, be that for fun, art or business growth.

Our projects

Air

Every winter Warsaw is caught in smog for several days with pollution levels exceeding 800% of the adopted standard. State pollution data is insufficient – it calculates the average from a few air-monitoring stations and does not refer to specific locations and areas. That is why we decided to build a network of low-cost IoT air quality sensors for public and open-source use. It will the first IoT implementation to public sector in Poland’s capital to our knowledge.

Tutorials

The best way to build awareness and educate about electronics is to point out how accessible it is for everyone. That is why together with Deloitte Digital we delivered series of online tutorials. Each episode lasts 60 seconds and covers 4 parts: essentials elements, electronic circuit presentation, instructions, and working prototype. They are accompanied by comprehensive step-by-step instructions and Github libraries for everyone to be able recreate the projects.

Hi.Kids

Playful learning is the core of everything we do. That’s why we are cooperating with NGOs and private entities and conduct workshops where kids can develop their skills for the future. Each session encourages learning dispositions, curiosity, exploration, creativity and collaboration. hi.kids workshops are hands-on and experimental, as we put 3D printing, handmade crafting, physical computing and computer programming to the mix.

Hi.Drinks

Collaboration is the catalyst of innovation. Networking helps ideas move forward and offers comprehensive outlook on everyday problems and future solutions, which may not be visible from single man perspective. That is why we are organizing monthly hi.drinks sessions where we are bringing together organizations, startups, friends and individuals and sharing experiences, discuss trends and our current projects and inspirations.

Hi.Future

One way to predict the future is to make it visible. That’s why, twice a year, we bring together disruptors of diverse specialties and run weeklong workshops where we are trying to understand how emerging technologies and trends can change or affect our future. Each session has a different topic. Together we are generating a list of ideas and issues that we deem important, interesting or valuable. With our design-driven approach we are able to recognize opportunities and blind spots. Then we develop each idea using knowledge, practices, talents, and expertise held within the interdisciplinary group. The final outcomes are prototypes to make each idea visible and substantial. Each session is documented and recorded and we share the outcomes with a wider audience.
