We are Picibird from Berlin, Germany.

We design, develop and market software using web, mobile and desktop technology.

Our two ways of business are: Creating customer-specific solutions from concept to production and do product lifetime maintenance if needed. Developing software products that fully embrace our style and ideology doing publishing and marketing in-house. One of those products is our Liberry App Platform (formerly Hybrid Bookshelf) that enables students to interact with their academic library services in fast and joyful ways. To make a long story short, we just love doing software. We combine methods of “human-computer interaction” with a range of sophisticated technologies to create delightful user experiences. With simple agile workflows, we make sure the needs of our customers and users are met even if they change long after project kickoff.

Create Workshop

For the World Usability Day we accompanied a creative thinking workshop with a multi-touch table installation for new idea generation. The most useful feature was using the Anoto Pen Technology to sketch on real paper. All sketches were automatically transmitted to the table via bluetooth to create an idea map and to discuss each individual or combined ideas in the group.
