Accenture has scooped up an Austin original: Chaotic Moon.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Chaotic Moon, founded in 2010, is known in Austin as a creative technology studio, that pushes the boundaries of technology. In 2014 during SXSW, the studio launched a drone and tasered an intern at its offices. It has also created motorized skateboards controlled with a smartphone.

But Chaotic Moon also has a big business creating apps and other technology projects for brands including General Motors. The company works on strategy, digital design, prototyping and development.

Accenture bought Chaotic Moon to expand its “rapid prototyping and creative technology capabilities, as well as a regional foothold in the talent-rich Texas market.”

“Chaotic Moon is a place where ideas are realized, conversations are sparked, and problems are solved through creativity and technology by having the best talent,” Ben Lamm, chief executive officer and co-founder, said in a news release. “With Accenture Interactive, Chaotic Moon will continue to design and build technology of consequence for our existing clients, as well as Accenture’s roster of many of the world’s biggest brands.”
