OUR COMPANIES AND EDUCATION



At Tension we thrive by mixing old and new technology and software. You will find us at the threshold between hardware and system design, in the gap where new gizmos want to find functional use, and where traditional concepts need a boost of innovative ideas. We've been bridging gaming platforms, code standards, graphical content, crazy new ideas and hardware that doesn't make sense since our conception in 1999. All this sounds pretty abstract, we know. But that's where we want to be.
