Million years ago, mankind evolved and began using tools. For generations, we created tools for our needs and adapted them to their specific usage. Today we have arrived in a computer era and fewer tools are used on behalf of input devices for operating computers or similar electronic apparatus. We struggle with input devices such as keyboard and mouse. The evolution the latest years have evolved around software and interface design. This is not enough; we need to evolve the tools as well to take the next evolutionary step in human-computer interaction.
In 2011, research at Linköping University lead to discover of multi-dimension tracking of small magnets. This allowed for many new applications in the human-computer interaction field. The research group consisted of Dr. Fredrik Gustafsson, Dr. Niklas Wahlström and Dr. Gustaf Hendeby whom at the time worked in the department of automatic control.
In 2016, the researchers teamed up with business developer Oscar Spaak and founded the company Stylaero AB early 2017.
Stylaero values confidence, collaboration and creativity.
We believe in a future where humans seamlessly and intuitively interact with computers.
Our products are created from the latest research around room scale tracking and are super intuitive.
We deliver hardware and software to allow user interaction in room scale environment.
In French ”Stylo” is pen, and in Latin ”Aero” meaning air. Together they create Stylaero, a pen in the air. Referencing an early demo where the user had full 3D control of a computer with a pen.
A multi talented entreprenur and coach who have established over 40 companies and coached 500 individuals.
With a background in computer engineering MSc. Spaak delivers on both on the technical side as well as the business side.

Dr. Wahlström’s research interests lie in sensor fusion, statistical signal processing machine learning together with its applications. His main path of research is magnetic tracking, using magnetometers for tracking and localization.
Dr. Wahlström is a researcher at Department of Information Technology, Division of Systems and Control at Uppsala University
The focus of Dr. Hendeby’s research is statistical and model based sensor fusion; in particular with applications in target tracking, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), positioning, and general nonlinear estimation problems.
Dr. Hendeby currently holds an Associate Professor position at the Division of Automatic Control at the Department of Electrical Engineering at Linköping University.
Dr. Gustafsson’s research interests are in stochastic signal processing, adaptive filtering and change detection, with applications to communication, vehicular, airborne, audio and wildlife applications.
Dr Gustafsson is a professor in Sensor Informatics at Department of Electrical Engineering at Linköping University.
