Some past projects

Outstanding results

Lifeplayer MP3​

Award Wining Design​

We were involved in the initial prototype development of the Lifeplayer MP3 for Lifeline Energy. The Lifeplayer was a finalist for an INDEX award


Wildlife tracking

Tracking endangered Rhino's

We were part of a team developing a custom wildlife tracking solution. The system required no existing infrastructure. Is able to achieve a location fix every 5 minutes and runs for years on a single D Cell battery

Lapalala Wildlife Reserve

Great Guide

GPS Guided Audio Tours

If you have been on vacation and gone on an open bus tour in one of the major cities across the world then chances are you have been listening to us! We developed a Linux Based GPS triggered multi-channel audio system for GreatGuide


Moving Tactics

Industrial Routers

Moving  Tactics had  a connectivity problems for the digital signage deployed at customer sites. We provided a Mikrotik based solution combined with our custom hardware,pre-configured  to their requirements.

Our Dual-SIM Industrial router was developed to meet this challenge

Rhodes Food Group

A story of success

Clients often approach Inventech with a general idea of what they need, and this project was no different. We were able to jump right in with our expertise and designed and integrated a solution within their existing workflow. The results speak for themselves.


Concrete Laser Flooring

Rapid data acquisition and analysis

CLF needed a method to rapidly test the flatness of a poured concrete floor. We developed a complete solution to survey and process the acquired data. Learn more about the requirements here

Our Services

Design consultation

Design consultation and discussion are key to a successful project. They identify objectives, constraints, and preferences to develop unique and functional solutions. This involves effective communication between client and designer to guide the design process from start to finish. By brainstorming and exchanging ideas, clients' needs and preferences are taken into consideration while incorporating the designer's insights. This results in satisfactory final results and ensures the client's needs are met.

Firmware and software

Software development involves creating computer programs or applications that operate on various platforms. The process requires technical and creative skills, including coding, testing, and debugging. Collaboration and communication are essential for success as developers work closely with designers, stakeholders, and end-users. Staying up-to-date with the latest technologies is crucial, and there are different types of software development, including web, mobile, and game development.

Schematic and PCB Capture

Schematic capture creates a diagram of electronic circuit components. PCB capture creates a physical layout using specialized software to place components and route connections. Both steps are vital in creating circuits from simple to complex systems. They provide a standardized process, facilitate collaboration, and ensure circuits work correctly.


3D modeling and design involve creating shapes and objects in software that appear realistic and can be viewed from every angle. It helps to visualize and refine their concepts before constructing them, resulting in significant savings in resources and time. With the aid of 3D printing, we are able to create tangible 3D models of the product and enclosure
