    Turn your smart device GUI into a reality

    Purpose-built to reduce the frustrations, delays, and costs associated with connected home and consumer appliance development, Crank’s Storyboard’s GUI design tool helps UX designers and embedded systems engineers to work on a project at the same time, while supporting role-specific tools and languages. The end result is the best possible interface, whether it's a smart refrigerator, connected dishwasher, or smart watch. All delivered in record times and supporting many different platforms.

    Faster cycles, faster

    When UX engineers and embedded designers work in Storyboard’s proprietary parallel workflow environment, iterating and validating is done at a far superior pace.

    IoT devices

    GUIs created in Storyboard are designed, validated, tweaked and continually optimized for the embedded device from the get-go, ensuring maximum performance.

    Future proof and
    reuse your designs

    Create scalable, cross-platform GUIs for anything from the highest performance connected devices down to the lowest MCUs.
