HistoryEdit

2017-2019: Laserium MarsEdit





2019-present: Founding of Nimbus Electronics, the Jupiter and Neptune eraEdit

On January 30, 2019, ODIMG Technologies filed for bankruptcy. The former key members of the operations, Ryan Martin and James Fields, went on to form Nimbus Electronics Limited, with backing from Brittany Kurosaka, the owner of Qualis. They shortly afterwards acquired patents and trademarks related to Laserium Mars and its then-planned successor, along with other patents, including patents related to Mattel's HyperScan console, albeit for a new console accessory.

The company's purpose was "to produce a series of consoles that can take on two of the biggest console franchises ever (Xbox and PlayStation)".

Around March 2019, Nimbus Electronics proposed a Sinclair-branded 3D-capable video game system to Sinclair Research and Sky plc (owner of the Sinclair trademark), but as result of the failure of ZX Spectrum Vega+, the proposal was denied.

In May 2019, Nimbus Electronics and Virgin Group announced to work on a gaming console, however those plans were quickly halted, which resulted in Nimbus pitching around the project until they pitched it to Old Dominion Interactive Media Group, which gave birth to the Neptune project.

In September 2019, Nimbus Electronics hired people formerly employed by Blaze Europe as part of board of directors.

Later in 2019, Nimbus Electronics announced that a possible acquisition of Konix Systems may take place (both of them are co-developers on Laserium Neptune) for £1.7 billion, depending on the success of the Neptune. The company would be merged into the company and form the fourth "side-quarters" in Barcelona, specializing in the Neptune and future video game-related hardware projects.

They hired Angela Ahrendts as the Head of Worldwide Retail and Distribution Operations, Vipul Ved Prakash as the Head of the Rimyoni Search team, and Gerard Williams III as the Head of Micro-Design that year. The Micro-Design team will handle chip design and other kinds of micro-sized hardware design activities, and will also have the Nimbus subsidiary Nimbus Taiwan report to the team.

Nimbus Electronics has discussed opening offices in Dallas, Texas, with focus on semiconductor operations.
