QuirkLogic was founded in 2013 with a goal to improve the everyday by tackling common problems that need technological advances and delivering simple solutions. The company approaches challenges with a mix of logic, science, and creativity. The first product solution developed by QuirkLogic is a unique product that opens up an entire new market for eWriters with a 42” Connected eWriter. While this is the first product in the ecosystem the founders have been innovating together for years and their teams and solutions have supported corporations and educational institutions that touched millions and have been widely recognized. They are excited to continue the innovation journey with digital inking solutions that help organizations work more efficiently and creatively in modern workspaces and get the most from their distributed workforce.
Consider the design of entire user experience for this new form factor. Provide an “it just works” experience that requires minimal configuration and input from the user. Work within the constraints of very limited resolution and a black only color palette. Provide a rich solution within the constraints of current e-ink technology. Finally, consider how to easily configure some of the most powerful collaboration options enabled with multiple boards and remote connections.
Quilla has recently been released to the market. We understood that this experience was largely a “mobile kiosk” and leveraged the capabilities of the underlying operating system and the user’s mental models. The experience of the device is familiar and intuitive, not unlike most digital tablets. There is minimal input required for any workflows and most can be accomplished with simple touch or gestures. The design of the interface has received exceptional reviews and the goal of “it just works” has been achieved.
