Innovation through sense of Possibility
The Research and Development (R&D) of brand-new and high-quality products is our core strength. Our products are created through a combination of problem-solving and creative engineering together with analytical and experimental research.
We focus most of our resources to develop new products from ideas to design, from prototype to production.
Our long-term vision is to build the world leading Blacksheep products and brands. We have constructed a “lean” process which allows us the freedom to develop high quality, innovative products in a consistent and disciplined way.

Currently, our engineering team has been working on two internal projects:
The Ventilator project is our latest product that aims to bring a cutting-edge, high performance smart ventilator to the world that is scalable and cost effective.
The use of consumer-grade components enables this ventilator to be easy to use by anyone and this automated product can be run via smartphone or even a PC app.

Our Vision for R&D
There is an old African proverb that says “If you want to go fast, go alone; If you want to go far, go together.”
Research and Development is more successful with partnership and collaboration. Instead of going alone, we would like to work together with companies, higher education institutions and research organisations who have similar research agenda so that we can share resources and knowledge.
Our vision for R&D work is to provide:
- Brand new technology solutions with ideas to improve life and sustainable development;
- Affordable technology solutions to make it more accessible for low and middle-income countries;
- Nurturing programmes for the young talent, with practical skills knowledge so that they can be ready and well-prepared for the world of work.
