Award-Winning Product Design and Manufacturing
People deserve a better experience. At Cortex Design, we start with that belief, and use it as a guiding principle that pervades our entire process. We are a turnkey product design and manufacturing company. We visualize human experiences, design the product to support that experience, and manufacture the solution.
Full turnkey product design from blank slate to market. Working with close input from professional keyboard players, we developed the Lumatone to provide the freedom of expression that isomorphic keyboard players had been asking for for decades. We built it. Now it’s ready to go into musicians’ hands, and we can’t wait to see what’s possible.

Before Bublcam, 360° imaging was kind of like computers before the PC: it was only for specialized applications. Spherical imaging needed expensive, highly-engineered equipment, massive workstations, and engineers with subject matter expertise to process the data. Sean Ramsay’s background in camera stitching software led to a simple realization:
360° imaging should belong to everyone.
Put that capability in the hands of consumers, and you’ll empower them to tell their stories in a way they never could before. You’ll also create a massive new market.
VITALITI is a “doctor in a box” – a wearable medical device paired with a diagnostic basestation that can diagnose 19 chronic medical conditions, monitor all 5 human vital signs, and stream that data to a cloud server – all without a clinician. And it had to weigh less than 5 lbs too. It is poised to disrupt overstressed healthcare systems and super-empower users by assessing physical wellness outside of clinical settings.

The Smart Helmet Clip is an industrial-grade wearable device that facilitates safer productivity in heavy industries. It has a modular sensor suite that enables situational awareness (including location, presence of dangerous gasses, and a worker’s vital signs) for both the workers and the industrial operators. The Smart Helmet Clip’s location awareness also allows operators to make quicker decisions in response to real-time activities on the ground.
