About Us

Loligo is a small company somewhere in between Art & Technology. We develop all kinds of electronics, ranging from heavy industry to fine art. Recent projects include FPGA based video hardware, a lamp that can blow big soap bubbles, electronics for glass art at a hospital and two robotic beds driving around sleeping visitors at a gallery in Oslo. Currently we are developing a family of wireless data loggers (Berries), an indoor navigation system (LPS), technical aspects of a textile exhibition and a solar powered lamp for rural Kenya.

Loligo has been around for twelve years. In the beginning it was a one man show. During the last few years the company has grown. Our web shop is part thereof, but our main business is product development of various kinds. We are located on two sides of the planet: Stockholm (Sweden) and Brisbane (Australia).

Below are a few examples of our projects within art and advertising:

Fun things made by Sven, our very own mix of artist and engineer in the lab (anything cool in the lab has his name on it)

Remote infrared eyes

Why not play football through the eyes of your opponent, or with a bird’s-eye view? Place the camera wherever you like and try to navigate your way through life. As an added bonus the camera is sensitive to IR enabling night time action! Sven is the gentleman to the left.

Drink dispenser.

The ultimate tea maker.

Our industrial projects are seldom for us to show the world, but here are a few examples:

FPGA based video hardware able to digitize several video formats, add text overlay etc.

A ten year old board with FPGA and DSP acting either as a framegrabber for radar images or a camera able to classify Australian road signs.
