The first thought-powered wearable computer

 

Background

Neurosity is a New York based startup that created the brain-interface device, Notion. Founded by AJ Keller, a former Boeing employee, and Alex Castillo, an ex-Netflix engineer, they approached our creative team to produce a series of short films to introduce Notion at the TEDxTalk.

 

Storyboarding

Upon user testing Notion in beta, we started storyboarding the scenarios in preparation for the shoot. We wanted to support the integrity and capture the reality of what the device can do with real-time footage.

 

 

Behind The Scenes

As we tested the Notion device on our models, it was fascinating to watch Notion live in action. While shooting the kitchen scene, we captured how the iPad scrolled through the recipe hands-free, and mind controlled by our model, Marquini.
