Invention Labs is one of them, and Evelyn Labs is now teaming up with them to develop new educational tools.
They create products that are relevant in the Indian scenario, as well as provide their services to many companies worldwide.
Invention Labs has seen a wide spectrum of challenges, from building milk-packet vending machines to working with the Indian Space Research Organisation.
Their flagship product is ‘Avaz’ – India’s first assistive device for people with speech disabilities due to autism,cerebral palsy, hearing impairment and other reasons. It helps to give a voice to people whose only means of communication is non-verbal.
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. The device and the app are both designed to assist children with special needs communicate, express their thoughts and feelings, and enjoy a natural and normal childhood without being inhibited just because they are non-verbal.

It proves to be an extension of our belief that anything can be fun ! – and it makes us proud that our work is not just going to build products, but create solutions.
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.
The best products are those which enrich the human experience, and what could be better than providing solutions for better learning and better skills ? We are happy that we are building easier solutions for better tomorrows.
Have fun, and do what makes you happy. Have a nice weekend folks !
