Its core competence includes an ultra-low power consumption, an ultra-high precision 3D motion analysis technology and an embedded security. With its custom-made OS solution, its firmware directly leads to more-accurate/faster-response 3D motion analysis technology that highly evaluated by leading global corporations in various industries.

We were granted a very basic patent for a new computing authentication method – a much safer and highly intuitive one – that prevents security breaches quite effectively. With our world’s smallest IoT/Wearable module, the new authentication method can be implemented in every facet of our lives. The new authentication perfectly fits the smart-city era.

16Lab has unveiled the first official collaboration with Sony and is getting ready to realize a platform value through a global network of reputable business partners.

16Lab has received the highest honors at very reputable tech events, such as the Japan-UK Tech Awards as well as the CEATEC Innovation Awards (Home Entertainment). CEATEC is the largest tech exhibition in Asia.

16Lab is a rare find in Japan's startup scene. Ko Kijima - the CEO is a visionary and an excellent communicator, who sees the future in which how technology can change the lifestyle and how people will interact with things when everything is connected. Tonu - the lead engineer is a perfect partner for Ko to realize his vision. He is a tremendously skilled multi-talent engineer and is the driving force in developing the product.
I have seen many companies making physical products, but the ability for Ko to get other parties involved and help them realize his vision is second to none. The team will push the boundaries of technical challenges with a help from their partners and I am confident that the product will be something that will make a huge impact in the next generation human interface space.
