Those Ltd. was set up in order to explore the sweet spot where the digital world meets the physical world. After designing our first product the Woodpecker, a digital drawing system, we made the transition into become a hardware startup in order to realize our product ideas and develop them through manufacture.
As a studio our mission was to thinking beyond the web and going beyond the screen. We design with both materials and code in order to demonstrate creative thinking and design in a post-internet world.
Our product is Flint OS, a web-centric operating system based on the open source Chromium Project that powers Google Chrome and Chrome OS. This OS will be created with the Chinese market in mind, therefore, allowing it to be utilised globally. The OS is compatible with ARM devices such as the Raspberry Pi and x86 devices.
This OS provides the basis for computing built for the web. Leaving behind the pain points users have with older operating systems developed before the internet was as integral as it is today. Similar operating systems have had great success in the USA and the rest of the world we hope to bring this fantastic new way of computing to the Chinese market.
The applications for Flint OS are wide ranging from elegant 2-in-1 consumer devices to secure single application terminals. We are developing the OS currently as a small and medium business solution with a cloud management console allowing simple and secure management of company technical assets.
We have a diverse team operating across UK and China with the skills and passion for the technology to realise our ambition.
The full-time members of the team include me Will Smith, Alpha Tang and Carrie Gu. Will Smith is an ACCA qualified accountant with a passion for technology who recently left PwC after 5 years to found Flint Innovations.

BLOCKS is the world’s first modular smartwatch. Compared to our phones, smartwatches are small and have limited space inside. This means that other smartwatch companies are having to compromise on which features they to put into a tiny little device that fits around your wrist. BLOCKS wanted to give that power back to you, the user, to choose what features are important just for you.
Besides, It’s the third largest ever technology kickstarter in Europe and 15th globally. Its unique subscribers on email and social media are more than 150,000.
The AlphaSphere is a new musical instrument that opens up music making to a new generation of musicians. Designed for composition, production, performance and learning, each of the tactile pads are pressure sensitive and ergonomically mapped around the surface of sphere. Underlying the design is a geometric notational logic that allows the custom mappings to be created between different pads.
For example when a major scales are mapped around the rows of pads, perfect fifths can be played with opposing pads, resulting in circles of fifths spiraling around the AlphaSphere. Chords can also be mapped between different rows, and each pad, or set of pads, can have a custom mapping which means that as a user you can create your own perfectly mapped instrument.
As well as playing notes, the AlphaSphere is also able to trigger samples, sequences or other control data through the custom software AlphaLive. This allows you to control not only music production software but also Video Jockey software meaning that the AlphaSphere can be set up to control a full audio visual performance. The AlphaSphere is used by musicians, composers, DJs, producers & VJs, and also has applications within education and music therapy.
The AlphaSphere was invented by Adam Place who set-out to create an instrument that would be open to more musical styles and playing techniques than a keyboard, when he realised the possibilities of music production. After having the original idea and producing the first prototype Adam was awarded a scholarship to study at Nagoya University of Arts, in Japan, where he refined the concept. Returning to his home town of Bristol, UK, he was awarded seed funding and founded nu desine to take this innovation to the marketplace.
The AlphaSphere is now available worldwide, there are currently three different models; the AlphaSphere elite, designed for the studio, the AlphaSphere nexus, designed for the stage and the AlphaSphere me, designed to make music accessible for everyone.View all
