Company description

Motius is a German R&D / Think Tank company.

Our vision is to realize the disruptive potential of new technologies and talents during every tech cycle. This is made possible by our unique structure. Motius is based on an interdisciplinary talent community of young elite Tech Talents (e.g. students or academic researchers) and experienced engineers from leading universities. Combined with an experienced core team, Motius develops the products of the future in areas like mobility, smart city/living, Big Data, FinTech, Digital Transformation, etc. with technologies/fields including A.I., AR, VR, 3D-Priniting, IoT Tech and Blockchain, among others. Those areas and technologies might be the current focus, but through its structure, community and tools, Motius keeps pace with technologies yet to come.

Motius is currently based in Munich, Dubai and Stuttgart.

Part of our culture are monthly 2 day hack sessions, we call it ELU. During that time, Motius does not do operational work and the whole team including the founders concentrates on learning new technologies and build small prototypes. In the last sessions we've played around with HTC Vive (VR), SLAM technology, Microtensor, Vuforia (AR), Amazon Alexa, and a lot more. This is one part that makes the work at Motius unique and helps us a lot to become better week by week.
