We take emerging technologies and turn them into magical realities.
At Heyday we believe the best way to learn things is to make things.
This means working with you to turn insights into future digital products, tech-infused experiences and inventive opportunities – that often seem like magic to the untrained eye.
In practice, the roads to create these new things are each unique by design. They typically include research, ideation sessions and iterative prototyping across emerging technologies until we get to something that works for you.
A collaboration with Google on the future of Google Sheets. We built an add-on for Sheets that gives you superpowers — allowing you to pull in search results, detect objects in images with AI, text your friends, and other things that usually require diving into code.
Speech Explorer started as an investigation with Google into how the web would work if it were possible to hyperlink between videos and audio files. It ended with a finished Chrome extension allowing users to search within YouTube videos and see live search results on keywords as they are spoken.
We teamed up with Audio Intelligence Agency for an ongoing project investigating what the ramifications of creative AI are for the music industry. We are currently researching the area and working on a prototype product for market.
Heyday is a Sydney-based design, research & development lab that was born from Google and now works with partners around the globe.
