Brighton’s tech history
Generally recognised as one of England’s most creative hubs, Brighton has a long history of technical innovation.
As early as 1908, Brighton born George Albert Smith’s Kinemacolor was being used to commercially create colour films; who can forget the eight-minute epic A Visit to the Seaside?
Moving forward to the 80s, Ian Cullimore was picking up his PhD at the University of Sussex; and inventing the world’s first pocket PC. It became the Atari Portfolio in 1985 – which was essentially the world's first laptop.
In recent times it’s no surprise a slew of games developers have chosen the sea air over the smog of nearby London, with NCSoft Europe (Guild Wars, Wildstar), Riot Games (League of Legends Online) and Zoe Mode (Zumba Fitness) amongst those based in the city.
