To make it easier for your satisfied customers to share information on a specific product SKU and configuration, use PiCosm to assign a unique and permanent Pi (Product identifier) to each. Users can then conveniently share a link to the precise product spec, reducing the chances of an incorrect purchase and costly return. Best of all, you can include external links within each PiCosm Product Profile, such as to your online store, user guides, compatible accessories and driver downloads.

If any details change, your product manager can simply login and update the profile. If you have used our APi to embed specific product specs within your own website, then when changes are made to the Product Profile, these will be reflected immediately on your website when a customer next refreshes the page.


Manufacturers, help your potential customers make the correct choice with accurate product data that's compelling in presentaton too. Have your product manager (or us) use PiCosm to create an accurate detailed permanent easy to share profile and interactive 3D model* of each of your products, whether food, gadgets, airliners - anything. Each item will be referenced by a unique permanent 1 to 12 digit Pi (Product identifier) and associated URL. For example: picosm.com/913051923497.

To ensure customers, partners or historians can depend upon it for accuracy, login to update or correct a Product Profile at any time.

The number below the PiCosm logo is the unique Pi (Product identifier) for the item shown, in this example, the conceptual mobile gaming device. For ease of reading by humans, we encourage the displaying of Pi numbers in groups of two digits.


Use the PiCosm APi to embed one or more fields of a profile (weight, ingredients, technical specification etc) in your website - styling it in accordance with your corporate identity. For example, our holding company t-shirt ordering pages: Each t-shirt has it's own unique PiCosm Product Profile with the PiCosm APi used to embed specific data and 2 or 3D imagery in the web page dedicated to each t-shirt, like this medium black style.

Any changes made by your staff to your PiCosm Product Profile will be reflected dynamically across your own properties, ensuring your customers always obtain accurate details.


PiCosm gives you full control over the fields to include in each Product Profile, as shown in the expandable list below. The fields you select will depend on the product category. For example, if you are listing an electronics product, you will probably select Specification, but not Ingredients - the latter suited to a food product.

  1. Your company or your legally appointed agent signs up for PiCosm. If your company is composed of several divisions or locations, then it is recommended that each signs up for their own PiCosm account and uses it to manage Product Profiles associated with that division. Powerful keyword searching helps avoid duplicate entries.
  2. During the signup process, select the Product Profile option.
  3. After verifying your account, if not already logged in, create a profile for your first product by selecting ADD > ITEM from the MustDash navigation header.
  4. Fill in the fields as appropriate.
  5. Once done, select SAVE.
  6. For each product, you can choose whether or not a profile is visible to the public by selecting VIEW > ITEMS from the right drop down menu in the MustDash navigation header. A table of items will appear. The little eye icon allows the visibility of that item to be toggled on and off.
  7. To view a profile as the public will see it in the standard PiCosm format, visit https://picosm.com/x where x is the unique Pi number for that item, or click the Pi in the table view, as per step 6, above.
  8. To embed Product Profile data in your own property (such as an ecommerce system) requires an understanding of the PiCosm APi. Please reach out at hi@picosm.com for details. Once you build your own PiCosm powered property such as a product specification table on your corporate website, when any changes are made to the Product Profile within PiCosm, they will be reflected on your property. The end user will need to perform a page refresh to see any change.
  9. Example Pi on a product

    Fig 2 - Displaying a Pi on your products helps customers recommend them to others and is invaluable to support staff, the media and researchers
  10. Print the Pi for each item on it's packaging and/or if the item is an electronic device, screen print or engrave it on the reverse near the serial number. This will prove invaluable not just for customers wanting to share the product details with others, but for your own service technicians who will be able to lookup the precise SKU. For example, Pi 97 94 32 86 78 22. For ease of reading by humans we encourage separating every two digits of a Pi with a space.

    As is standard across PiCosm, your Product Profiles are permanent, with no renewal or subscription fees required. This ensures your customers, staff, media and researchers will always be able to rely on the PiCosm powered Product Profiles into the future, even after the product is no longer available.


Customers, journalists, researchers and others desiring accurate details on your item(s) can view a specific Product Profile directly at its PiCosm URL (such as picosm.com/913051923497), or by inputting the product's Pi ID at PiCosm.com, as shown below. If they don't know the Pi, a keyword search may be performed to locate the item(s).
