We are incredibly happy and proud to announce that xTactor has been named one of the winners in this year's innovation competition from The Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS).
Motivation from PTS:
"Very high level of innovation. Communication beyond sight and hearing feels very relevant and innovative. Great potential for the specified target group and for others. Potential for more areas of use. Competent actor with knowledge and experience."
The innovation competitions from PTS aim to support projects that enable more people to benefit from the possibilities of modern digital solutions. This year's theme was "Communication for all" with the aim to make it possible for more people to understand and use digital communication regardless of functional ability. The competition's expert council has reviewed all 45 applications received this year and have chosen xTactor, together with 5 other winners. The winners will receive funding for 1.5 years and will share a total of 13 million SEK. For more information see announcement from PTS (in Swedish).
With the support from PTS, we can continue to develop tactile communication tools to contribute to greater inclusion in modern digital communication. It gives us the opportunity to develop our technology in new innovative ways.
However, none of this would have been possible without all the support xTactor has received, especially from our fantastic testers and advisors.
We look forward to sharing more about xTactor's successes and future developments with you. Thank you for your support and for being part of our journey!
