Collaboration Made Easy
We take on numerous different projects at once and work with talented people of all types from all over the world. We also believe in sharing the success of every project with each person who helped.
It turns out a lot of other people think that way too, so we decided to create kalabbr to make it easy.
The kalabbr app lets anyone quickly create and reward a team. Create new products together and sell them online: kalabbr automatically splits the revenue. Gather a group to complete a project: kalabbr pays each contributor the correct amount.

Mushroom Mayhem is a fast-paced game inspired by classic arcade favorites like Galaga: Pilot your rocket microbus through outer space to defend the Earth against giant mushrooms.
This project combined the skills and passions of everyone at RocketLife, starting with the lead programmer, who wanted to bring back the fun of the 1980s games he’d worked on. His enthusiasm drew others on the team to contribute graphic design, original music, and storytelling ideas.

Design in Motion
Xero combines our expertise in software, electronics, and industrial design with our love for quality gear. We used advanced 3D software, computer-controlled mills, and precision lasers to create an item you can’t find anywhere else. This project was an opportunity to turn our passion for great design into a device we ourselves would want to hold, spin, and share: a small, exquisite machine that feels wonderful in your hand.
Reviewers agree: “It is beautiful — spins great, forever and silently.”
1-Pixel Visual Effects
One is a single-pixel visual effects device. It builds on the industrial design of Xero, then adds a motion sensor, microprocessor, and our advanced video effect algorithms to create dynamic light shows as you spin it. People who have seen prototypes tell us they’re amazed that all those colorful patterns come from a single LED.

For years, we’ve wanted to use our expertise in electronics, digital visual effects, and industrial design to build an electronic candle that truly evokes the feeling of fire. Thanks to a powerful new generation of microcontrollers and LEDs, we’re finally able to bring that vision to life.
Flame is our version of what a candle can be, rediscovering not just fire, but also other dynamic visual effects.

LED Effect Designer
Light began as an internal development system for our LED visual effects products. We designed it to solve a fundamental problem: Too often, creative tools are designed for engineers, not artists. What’s more, existing systems are inefficient, requiring a programmer to write code for each new visual effect.
As we refined the software, we realized others could benefit as well. Light will enable artists and makers of all kinds to create emotive visual effects, from light shows, to signs, to wearables and more.

Blow up Your Photos
Biggify is a simple and speedy iOS app that turns tiny phone photos into wall-size art. It works by spreading a single photo across multiple pages. Line up the pages to make a panorama, or overlap them to make dramatic art. You can add a graphic for the final touch, then print wirelessly from your iPhone or iPad.
Biggify combines the speed of mobile apps with an artistic way to expand photos beyond the small screen.
Give your texts more character
Stickers by RocketLife is an iOS app that lets you add fun graphics to text messages. We designed all the graphics in-house, from the distinctive “Bluemoji” characters to hand-lettered sentiments. After adding the graphics to our desktop creativity software, we realized the look was perfect for texting too. Insider tip: If you survive long enough in Mushroom Mayhem, you’ll find a Bluemoji bonus there as well.
Desktop Printing Software
HP Photo Creations is RocketLife’s creative printing app for Mac and Windows. It’s distributed worldwide by HP, running in 22 languages. Customers can print projects like books, cards, and calendars themselves, order their projects for home delivery in 19 countries, and collaborate online.
The program combines unique editing features derived from our background in visual effects as well as contemporary designs from our in-house artists.
