Hopspots is growing rapidly and is now ready for the market. A lot has happened during the past year: More games have been developed, the staff has grown, customers have emerged and the design of Hopspots is nice and functional. CxD consists of several employees, interns and external partners who assist in programming, making music and content. Currently 4 games have been developed: Sequence, Mix’N’Match, The Chase and Code a Spot. More games are added on a regular basis and next in line is FlowDance, which is developed in collaboration with Uglegårdskolen. Additionally, we are working on the game Historiehopperen with support from the Ministry of Education. Historiehopperen will be ready during 2017. In collaboration with VIA UCC a teachers' guide is on the way. The guide describes how Hopspots can be integrated into Danish education. The goal is to make Hopspots a part of the curriculum.

Innovation in collaboration with four public schools

Hopspots is a co-creation establishment built on the belief that real value is created in collaboration with the end-users of the product. To involve users in the design-process CxD facilitated an innovation course together with four public schools in Denmark during the fall of 2015. The children worked with idea generation and concept development and competed against each other with the aim to create a new game for Hopspots. Uglegårdskolen won the contest with their idea for the game FlowDance. As part of the award the game will be developed and become an integrated part of Hopspots.

Early in 2015 the first Hopspots game was ready for a test run. The game was well-received by the children who found it to be fun and motivating. This lead to the investment of an investor and the development took off.

The first prototype

With support from the non-profit organization LivingItLab it became possible to create a prototype that could demonstrate whether it was a useful concept. By the end of 2014 the first real prototype of Hopspots was ready. The shells for the spots were vacuum-shaped via an old machine and the colours were hand painted. At the same time the app, which was meant to work together with the spots, was being developed. Since then many prototypes have been developed in order to create the right design. Hopspots is made in Denmark and great attention to detail, quality and the good design experience is paid.
