Port 6's goal is to build the leading augmented reality interaction laboratory in Europe over the next year. A time machine over and into the next leap in human cognition since the invention of the personal computer. At Port 6, you will be working in our interaction laboratory to create novel and custom hardware to do interactions that feel nothing short of pure magic. This includes the entire process from ideation and prioritization down to execution and delivery of electronics for research use.
