Founded in January of 2016 by Rosalinda Hernandez and Lloyd Summers, Red Iron Labs is a small innovative technology studio operating in Calgary Alberta. Originally created as an experimental company for narrative story telling in virtual and augmented reality, we realized our unique game development methodology made it easy to develop high quality rapid prototypes. In 2018, we expanded the company to begin offering development services to other like-minded companies.
Forged out of a passion for game development and rapid prototyping, our team has mad skills.
We use our expertise of cutting edge VR technology, combined with 3D modeling, 360 video, and creative design to deliver immersive virtual reality products for business functions such as marketing, applications, product demos, and simulations.
We get to make some really cool stuff.
We want to grow technology in Calgary. With restricted access to developers and cutting edge technology, getting into software development (especially in new fields such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality) can be a daunting task. And building large development teams without validating a prototype can be scary.
We make this easier by building something amazing and leveraging our experienced team members well versed in the latest technology. Our team members have decades of combined experience with hundreds of shipped apps, games and mobile titles.
We’re in this together
We don’t see other companies as clients, we see them as unique partnerships.
We know what it is like to have a startup and a small business – this only works when everyone is successful. From researching funding opportunities, to engaging your clients, to developing an amazing project – our goal is to do a lot more than just get your project out the door.
We design, develop, and implement high-end immersive and interactive custom solutions through Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality with partners across a wide range of sectors and applications including Training, Safety, Education, Energy, Healthcare, Industrial, Workforce Productivity, Video Games, and Arts & Entertainment.
The training application was used to transform traditional HR training videos into interactive virtual reality experiences for showing employees how to properly secure and check a vehicle for transportation.
The 30-minute experience entails 60 steps to complete.
We have a passion for games. From mobile transport sims, to black & white RPGs, to complex VR experiences, to VR fairtale games, and even complex multiplayer titles – we get to make a lot of fun stuff.
