Our books


We have developed products that have been seen at the Milan Furniture Fair and orbited Mars, devices that have been featured at international arts competitions, interfaces that have been used by millions of people and custom works developed for single users.

ThingM principals Mike Kuniavsky and Tod E. Kurt are leading experts in the fields of hardware and software user experience, web technology development and consumer robotics. They have been collaborating on projects since 1994, when they created, one of the earliest e-commerce web sites, which launched two months before

Our expertise with agile and flexible development strategies, bold technology choices and innovative user-centered design serves as a framework for all ThingM projects. Sharing that expertise with like-minded clients allows us to bring these processes into new product areas, markets and orbits.
