Tomorrowing Today.TM

The future we were promised in the videos, cartoons and books of our youth promised flying cars, global utopias and a world where digital and physical lives were intertwined. The world we live in falls short of the vision. At Hypergiant, we constantly ask where is the future we were promised and what can we do to bring it to life? Our vision of tomorrowing today is to be the guiding light of the future who guides and accelerates the way forward for a better world.

Our Philosophy:
To Build a Better World.

Hypergiant wants to do more than make great software. We want to make a better world.

Technology is a foundational element in the effort to build a better society. From the international space station, to the internet, to the next leap with quantum computing, technology, particularly artificial intelligence related technologies, are rapidly propelling humanity forward. However, it's not enough to build new technology, particularly AI, and let it loose on the world. Instead, we need to develop a vision for a future and use technology to support that vision.


Our R&D labs have been busy.

We believe this future is possible when we democratize artificial intelligence and develop new technology solutions aligned with this bigger philosophy on living. When we focus on our five pillars, we can build ground-breaking technologies, support the technology developments of others, and champion work being done all over the world. We believe in a future that is more resilient, more inclusive, and more secure.

Our R&D lab has built prototype solutions, including:


EOS Bioreact

Algae Carbon Capture Device

An AI model powered by our Hyperdrive AI platform modulates algae performance in order to improve carbon sequestration in our award-winning Eos Bioreactor, currently on display as part of the Smithsonian's FUTURES exhibit. The Bioreactor is 400 times more effective at consuming carbon dioxide than trees, while producing a harvestable biomass that can be repurposed for multiple uses like eco-friendly 3-D printing and creating biofuels.


Advanced Astronaut HUD

The heads-up display (HUD) for astronauts could help them better manage complex space missions. Its purpose is to improve safety by putting more information at astronauts’ fingertips and cutting down on how much they have to maneuver in the spacesuit.

Project ORION

Augmented Reality Helmet

ORION is an augmented-reality helmet designed with first-responders in mind. The helmet is out-fitted with multiple cameras (regular vision, night vision, infrared, thermal imaging detection), delivering its wearer a real-time active display with shape and object detection and classification at 5K resolution and a 200-degree field of vision. ORION is designed as a robust platform for enabling additional context-specific information.

Project SkyView

Disaster Mapping System

SkyView is an AI model powered by our Hyperdrive AI platform that leverages satellite and drone imagery to pinpoint and score buildings most impacted by a disaster such as a tornado or earthquake. Using SkyView, first-responder search and rescue teams can enter into affected areas with a color-coded view and understanding of the best path of entry to help and where the most damage exists.


Ethics in everything we do.

Ethics equals trust. Trust equals economic value creation. The Hypergiant Ethical Reasoning Model is based on trust. We believe developing and deploying ethical reasoning at every stage of the process will ensure trust by our team, clients, and society-at-large in products and services we create.
