Several discussions on the development of the digital pacifier Still have already taken place with the Institute for Product Development, Design and Construction (IPEK) at the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil (HSR). As soon as crowdfunding is successfully completed, the starting signal will be given and the order will be awarded to the HSR.

Under the direction of Albert Loichinger, the institute has already developed numerous patents in the field of digitalization, robotics and innovations in industry and has received prestigious research awards.
