Th3rd Coast Digital Solutions has partnered with Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD of FSU), to launch the first-ever, Design Thinking, emerging tech innovation lab.


To explore and experiment with the 3D digital world to discover breakthrough insights, set industry standards, and develop practical solutions. 


Driven by the “Start With The ARt” mantra, a phrase coined by Cathy Hackl in 2019, we explore existing 2D User Experience / User Interface (UX/UI) principals, experiment by applying a human-centered design process to 3D and spatial computing environments, and ultimately establish standards and best practices for makers to consider when crafting XR and Industry 4.0 solutions. Our goal is simple: create delightful, deployable experiences, which provide immediate, real-world value for humanity (and our corporate sponsors of course)!
