Company introduction

Imec is a world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies. The combination of their widely acclaimed leadership in microchip technology and profound software and ICT expertise makes them unique.


The analysis phase was mainly about asking questions, in order to clarify the brief and explore the product possibilities. The search included product functionality, user experience, market exploration, product appearance, and a detailed look in the Japanese market.

A moodboard concluded this phase, defining the design direction and possible look and feel of the product.



All the creative ability of our engineers and designers was captured in several brainstorm sessions. The best ideas are combined into a series of concepts. The most suitable and appealing concept is selected for further development.


Close to realisation

Different adjustment options are compared, ranked and tested, using quick mockup models. Small details like button connectors and LED’s are defined. Gradually, we collected all input needed to produce the product.



Lots of models are created and tested to find the perfect comfort and electro contact on the head. In the end, the best solutions are combined and refined in the 3D-CAD setup to create a prototype for more extensive testing.



An exclusive series of the electroencephalogram (EEG) headset has been manufactured and delivered.

The headset can measure emotions and cognitive processes in the brain and is a major breakthrough in emotion measurement for several purposes in, among others, therapeutic, educational and gaming applications.
