ISKN, a startup founded in 2014 to develop and commercialize an augmented interaction technology hatched at Leti, made its reputation with the Slate, which transforms handwritten drawings, sketches, and notes into digital files in real time. This summer the company ramped up its international business development strategy, presenting its latest product, Tori, in New York in July. ISKN joined forces with Japanese video gaming giant Bandai Namco Entertainment to develop Tori, which combines elements of digital and physical play to create a learning and entertainment ecosystem for children. Shortly after unveiling Tori in New York, ISKN cut the ribbon on its second North American subsidiary in Montreal (the first is in Philadelphia).
The company, which employs 50 people, also plans to open an office in Asia by the end of this year. ISKN’s R&D department is still based in Grenoble.
