Every thing connected. 

Using software and hardware, we create smart objects which extend real world experiences online. 


We want to help businesses use smart, connected, trackable devices to enhance brand experiences and entertainment. 

Signl, is an internet of things company, specialising in physical web development.

Using our experience, creative application of technology, and electronics team, we want to help businesses like yours deliver meaningful, memorable, and shareable experiences with your customers.   

Our team is hard at work in our lab; we've created interactive vending machines for people, as well as dogs, used sensors to help assess footfall at events, connected Facebook likes to objects in the real world and are currently working on affordable solutions for networked traffic light monitoring services.

Focus Areas


Events and Experiences

Want your event to stand out? To be remembered, shared, and generate value for your client? We can help.

Our team can assist with event analytics using sensors which detect footfall, and can assist in developing interactive experiences purpose built for your event.


Smart-shoppers now look to the web to help them spend wisely, or get the best product for their money. Armed with their mobile phones, shoppers can tap into real-time shopper rewards, store-locators and social incentives.

City and Towns

We're bringing municipal services online, and can help your town or city utilise smart-devices to track and analyse service delivery, and assist in improving operational efficiency and resource planning.

Connected citizens are keen collaborators, tapped into a smart city network, they can help re-route traffic, rally together for better service provision, or just alert neighbours to potential criminal behaviour.

Commercial Ventures

Our experiencing developing our own range of mobile phones and tablets, has given us experience and insight into conducting business across Africa, and in China.

Our team can assist with developing your business purpose, workshopping your concept, and advising on the development of prototypes and ultimately the commercialisation thereof.


Latest Internet of Things Project


Interactive vending machine for Nestlé's ChocFest Campaign 

The touchscreen-enabled app, was part selfie-booth and part jukebox. People triggered the app with a purchase, could take a selfie with their chocolate in hand and then select a track to be played. In only a few days we sold more than 500 chocolates and over 600 selfies were taken

The tech behind the scenes:

Python based touchscreen driven application, running on a Cubie Board and attached to a 30" screen. Infra-red sensors detected the presence of a falling object in motion, and triggered our app. 

Content gathering & distribution:

A custom built CMS gathered all images from the Cubie Board at timed intervals and we were able to not only gather selfies related to the campaign, but also real-time stats on purchases and purchase times.
