Team Evelyn at the IPL 2013 !

We take fun seriously. Which is why the Evelyn Labs team couldn’t pass up on an opportunity to be at one of the most sought after events of India’s most loved sport – an IPL cricket match.

 

We made a beeline for the RCB Vs SRH match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on April 9th 2013. The entire team had a great evening rooting for the home team and catching all the action live.

They’ve also developed the ‘Avaz’ app for iPad, specifically meant for children with autism.It is a form of ‘alternate communication’ and helps children with speech difficulties to express themselves.

Bringing gaming to learning – Evelyn Labs partners with SkillVeri


Why do people love weekends ?
Why do we groan on monday mornings ?
Whether its kids or adults, doesn’t everyone feel they need to break away from the same, monotonous tasks they do for the entire week ?

 

It is the emotional connect and fulfillment that makes ‘work’ into a ‘passion’. And it is with that understanding that we decided to make gaming our way of life at Evelyn Labs.

 

We believe that fun doesn’t have to stop with games.What if there could be fun in doing the regular, everyday tasks ? What if learning or studying could be more interesting ?

 

Evelyn Labs now expands its horizons, from being just game developers to bringing our expertise in games to other areas which could use creativity and unconventional thinking.

 

In this new phase of our journey, we are proud to partner with SkillVeri, whose aim is to use gaming as an educational tool. SkillVeri aims to provide training tools to address the growing gap between theoretical education and vocational skills. SkillVeri is currently offering solutions for the welding industry, and Evelyn Labs has joined hands with them to providing technical solutions for building their products, which include simulators for training in the welding industry.

Have fun, and do what makes you happy. Have a nice weekend folks !
