MINDBALL INTERACTIVE GAMING EXPERIENCE| DAILY 
A unique gaming experience that goes against the conventional competitive concept of physical activity and adrenalin – teaching focus and relaxation techniques, a player channels electrical activity in the brain via a biosensor system to move a ball to the opponent’s side. Mindball is an exciting and social game where the audience watches the ball, players’ physical cues and brain activity graphics on a monitor. Mindball was created for science centers attracting interest of mainstream customers, including The Coca Cola Company, Nike Inc., WIRED Magazine, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Barclays Bank and BBC.

STANDSEVEN POP-UP DESIGN SHOP | DAILY
Launched during London Design Week, STANDSEVEN - an online shop that offers high-end design products that create social impact – will present their first U.S. pop-up experience featuring a limited edition stool by designer David Adjaye.
