Welcome to acorn30 Labs; where we test and explore emerging technology in the name of marketing. In the a30 lab, you can see some of the things that we’re testing, we share some best practices and helpful code, workflows and other resources.

Some of our current projects involve Theta 360, Google Cardboard and Live Streaming. We’re also using existing tech innovatively to create solutions for our clients. In the lab we experiment with platforms like IFTTT, Zapier, Twilio, GCal, Ninja Forms and Google Sheets.

We’re always looking for new platforms and hardware to explore, break and learn from… sharing our journey so you can learn from us.

And when we get bored and have a bit of spare time… we plot to take over the world!
