the next dimension of big data
Our first product
is a visualization platform that can combine up to ten different data-sets into a fluid multi-dimensional band of light
HALO'S 6 DIMENSIONS
The HALO is applicable in a variety of scenarios, but provides a critical solution when:
Visualizing multiple parameters simultaneously
There is a high-stress situation with critical outcomes, and where the entity’s status can change rapidly
There is a tight interdependency of multiple dynamic data-streams, where the interdependency itself is something the viewer needs to understand
Maps correlations and reveals emergent properties amongst factors
Increases speed and level of comprehension of interdependent data
Allows for comparison and differentiation between many discrete groupings (multiple Halos)
After a brief period of familiarization, you will be able to understand and compare vast data sets at the glance of an eye.
ORA is currently developing HALOs that represent patient health status, backend data security, and stock fluctuations. But the list of potential use cases are endless - anywhere users need to monitor and interpret massive quantities of complex data in realtime.
Read an interview with CEO Stephen Marshall about ORA's launch into the medical sector, here.
Working with physicians and scientists at Mayo Clinic, ORA has developed the first responsive wearables-driven health identity, called the Heart HALO.
Currently in BETA.
A Fortune 500 company - which has asked for confidentiality - has licensed the HALO for display as the key signaler of the KPI for global product performance in their central monitoring dashboard.
League of Legends
We transformed how players evaluate and select 'champions' in the online game, League of Legends. Instead of scouring pages of bar graphs, gamers now get a holistic view of champion performance, both quickening and improving their decisions.
FOUNDER - CEO/PRODUCT LEAD
A polymath and serial entrepreneur, his two early-web journalism platforms Channel Zero & GNN, were at the forefront of digital and user-generated content. He entered the hi-tech realm with a vision for a new kind identity platform, one that evolves the 2-D personal profile into multi-dimensional, predictive data visualization powered by the user’s social, emotional, and mobile inputs. This became the foundation for ORA.
Peter Crnokrak, Ph.D.
founder - DATA VIZ/ARCHITECTURE LEAD
Emerging from a doctorate in quantitative genetics, Peter’s work takes complex systems and renders them into symbolic and intuitive graphical representations. He has been recognized by National Science Foundation, AIGA 365, ISTD and The European Design Awards and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts. As architecture lead, Peter designed the initial (patented) component ORA and PROTOSTAR systems, which form the initial product suite for the company.
Bradley Munkowitz (GMUNK) is one of the leading motion graphics designers of his generation. His ground-breaking UI work in TRON: Legacy and Oblivion evolved through his residencies at several influential design studios, beginning with Imaginary Forces, and including BUCK, Engine Design, and Prologue Films. Most recently, his design-directed film Box (with Bot & Dolly) won several of the top design awards.
Marcin Ignac is a leader in the still relatively uncommercialized field of generative programming. He writes code that allows data to fuel object-based computations. A lecturer, commercial designer, and exhibiting artist in the field of code art, Marcin’s work with Nike and his stunning data art installations made him a perfect candidate to code design ORA’s first stand-alone product, the algorithmically generated HALO.
