In January 2014, Garamantis was established by a group of skilled software engineers led by Oliver Elias and Marcus Dittebrand, who could both look back on many years of close collaboration with Ars Electronica. Together, Garamantis and Ars Electronica have since realised interactive installations, projects and exhibitions all over the world, with museums, trade fairs and companies counting among their clients.
Since 2015, Garamantis has extended its scope of activities beyond project-related work to the development and enhancement of interactive products. This way it becomes possible to improve already existing solutions and provide additional benefit by means of creatively applied state-of-the-art technology. In the beginning of 2017, Garamantis won the "innovation award IT" of the "initiative for medium-Sized businesses" for the development of the multi-touch-scanner-table. The interactive showcase was awarded as "Best of 2017" solution.
