Rapid, NoCode/LowCode Development

Deploy emerging technologies in weeks. Not months or years.

Powering new tech into the mainstream.

Most every category of human endeavor, from commerce to the creation and experience of knowledge and entertainment, can be reimagined when new technologies are broadly generative.

With a suite of visual development tools combining access to a range of AI and Web3 technologies, Headcanon is adept at rapidly implementing working apps that advance the state of the art.

This extraordinary edge enables us to implement and validate new applications in days or weeks, not months or years.

Example: Transium

Transium delivers the power of everyday, tokenized commerce and user engagement, with quick and easy onboarding, and the widest range of redeemable attachments, online and off.

Optionally deployable on the energy-responsible Polygon blockchain, all Transium tokens are available for free or with a credit card.

Launching February, 2023

How We Work

Headcanon is an emerging technology product studio. We invent and build products, and capture defensive intellectual property, with our proven methods of Applied Futurism.

As accomplished inventors, we specialize I seeing how a wide range of human and business activities will be inevitably transformed by emerging technologies, like AI, Web3, and No Code deveopment. And we’ve seen the cultural and economic benefits of broadening access to new tools and capabilities for everyone.

Our Aerio bookselling network, and BookShop.org, built atop Aer.io, launched in 2016, and now powers tens of millions of dollars in sales, putting revenue that once went to centralized platforms into the hands of indie booksellers and authors.

We’re just getting started! We have a product agenda. And we’re excited to hear about  yours. Get in touch to see how we can help you to deliver your vision.

rapid low code development

The metabolic rate of the new tech development is off the charts. One year in AI is like seven years on earth! Rapid visual development let us–and you– place more bets with less expense.

Roadmap & Strategy

Embracing new ways of doing business, new markets and new product formulations, is inherently strategic. We contemplate and build ecosystems, not just simple features.

Plugin & API Development

Low Code tools are changing the world, enabling non-technical founders to go to market with few impediments. We augment these tools with our own custom plugins and APIs.

mainstream user Experiences

New technologies create rich but frequently inaccessible capabilities. Our collective decades of shipping consumer products equips us to evolve new tech into useful products.

designing for scale

Mainstreaming new technologies requires designing products that can be understood and used by everyone, that deliver real value, at a cost mass markets can afford.  This is our focus.

Intellectual property pros

The foundations of  emerging tech may be free, & open source. As we move up the stack to the app layer, pro IP practices are essential, including defensive, patentable IP protections. 

Get in touch.

We’d love to hear from you.
