General information about Peliselli

Peliselli is a transformable space designed for creative work, combining expertise from multiple disciplines. The environment provides technologies for content creation, games development, testing and gaming. Peliselli can also provide multi-sensory experiences, virtual journeys and service prototypes for activation, relaxation, education or communication, to name some.

The laboratory will also act as a link to other development environments and SAMK study programmes. Peliselli provides contacts, support and ideas for researching, experimenting, testing and applying technology in your field of business and thus enables new ways of working and operating.
