Ubi was originally founded and incubated at the Technical University of Munich and the Center for Digital Technology and Management in Munich, Germany. We found a new home in Seattle when we were selected by Microsoft as one of the eleven promising companies, who were chosen from all over the world to be part of its first accelerator program. During this program we developed and perfected our technology making use of the close technical and business guidance from Microsoft.

Our unique technology has caught the world attention and has been featured in CNN, Wall Street Journal, Wired Magazine etc. Microsoft called us as the future of digital displays and featured us in the World Partner Conference 2012. Ubi Interactive is currently one of the many companies in SURF Incubator, located in Seattle, WA.
