TRIALS BY APPOINTMENT




These machines are philosophical instruments that allow our workforce to tangibly engage what's coming so that we can all anticipate and plan more wisely.
Jonathon Keats Chief Visionary Officer, Mental Work

THE WORLD’S FIRST FACTORY OPERATED BY WORKERS’ BRAINWAVES

At Mental Work, the workers are simultaneously the labor and the product: By directly controlling the machinery with their brainwaves, workers are psychologically decoupled from their bodies, past experiences, and preconceived ideas about the future. While the Mental Work facility appears to be an ordinary industrial unit, in reality it is the first factory to mass-produce philosophers.


In the Mental Work facility, workers employ Brain-Machine Interfaces (BMI) to control machines using only their minds. These machines are philosophical instruments that allow Mental Workers to tangibly engage with a future where pervasive BMI interaction with the physical environment is commonplace. Together with our employees, we are dedicated to anticipating and planning for this upcoming Cognitive Revolution.


MENTAL WORK trials are by appointment.


Sign up online for a 60-minute demonstration period at swissnex SF. Training is included and no prior experience is required.


TO SIGN UP FOR A TRIAL, FILL OUT THE FORM ON THE RIGHT BOTTOM.

Important:
Mental Workers must be at least 18 years of age and capable to understand the instructions. Our facilities are not able to accommodate individuals with involuntary movements, attention deficiency (moderated to severe), understanding disorders, and severe visual impairment.
