His final degree project, “Scope” – a system enhancing traditional toys with augmented reality – was praised by professionals all over the world.

Frantz joined Ubisoft’s R&D team, responsible for designing and developing innovative video game experiences. He then joined the LEGO headquarters in Billund, Denmark along with his school friend Nicolas Guyon. In July 2010 Frantz and Nicolas founded Visionaries 777 in Hong Kong.
