Overindulge with these 10 brain hacks to promote mental and physical wellness


CoVince was interviewed by Dave Farrow from Brain Hackers. He is the two-time Guinness Record holder for greatest memory. He has been a featured guest expert on over 2000 interviews in the media including, The Today Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, Steve Harvey, Discovery Channel and many others. To earn the world record, Farrow recalled the exact order of 59 decks of shuffled playing cards using ‘The Farrow Memory Method’. This method was originally invented to combat Farrow’s dyslexia and ADHD and is now a unique memory system backed by a double blind neuroscience study at McGill University.

Clinical Psychology Conference 2019 @Holiday Inn Amsterdam – Arena Towers

Clinical Psychology Conference 2019 Amsterdam

CoVince did a keynote at the Clinical Psychology Conference about new technology as a research accelerator, using the power of emotion, visualisation and associative learning.

With the help of new technology, it is possible to research new areas to improve and enrich learning, by creating repeatable full and immersive experiences and stimulate all senses. With immersive technologies like virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), pattern recognition with machine learning (ML) and (real time) feedback algorithms, the technology will become more widely available to the mass and more accurately represent these phenomena as they truly are.

CoVince discussed the evolving potential for VR and AR as a valuable researching and learning technology using practical and scientifcally proven examples.

Eins zwei Polizei, drei vier Simulier @Digitale Simulaties, Politie Academie Apeldoorn

CoVince one of the Digital Simulations pioniers and presented various cases – such as a safety training in public transportation – that contributes to increasing situational awareness.

Presentation competence increased without a difference between VR and face-to-face.

Students’ presentation competence increased without a difference between VR and face-to-face.

Proud to be co-authors on an article published in one of the leading journals “Computers & Education”.

Together with an excellent team, we researched the impact of giving feedback in VR compared to face-2-face feedback.

The research shows that presentation competence increased without a difference between face-2-face feedback and VR. Also the feedback in VR was perceived as detailed.

The VR environment let the students experience a classroom setting where they had to present. During their presentation all kind of measurements where being conducted. Measurements on voice, posture etc. These measurements provided the input for giving the feedback in graphs and explanation.

Meanwhile we face teacher shortages in the Netherlands. Using effective learning technologies, can teacher shortage be reduced?

Students’ presentation competence increased without a difference between VR and face-to-face.

Students who presented in virtual reality perceived the feedback as detailed.

Students who presented face-to-face perceived the feedback as constructive.

Scientific research to practical use

Together with the PhD-researcher Stan van Ginkel CoVince embedded all knowledge & insights into a product accessible for education and training. Combining theory, (simulated) practice and many different measurements with (real time) feedback.

The training can be downloaded on your smartphone (IOS, Android) and you can start right away! It includes feedback in VR and in all kinds of other adventurous learning experiences.

EventSummit @Ahoy Rotterdam


EventSummit in Ahoy Rotterdam: Presenting immersive event experiences

CoVince inspired visitors with experiences that they can use for a higher customer experience and engagement. During the EventSummit CoVince presented the visual voice, an ideal instrument to make events more inspiring. A (modified) scan of a person made into an avatar, which can be the host of the day. Talking real time with the audience or speakers, or run pre-recorded like at the Computable Awards 2018. (See video)


CoVince also presented a solution to extend the event journey. From different experiences during the run-up of the event, with 360 videos and virtual and augmented reality, to experiences on the event day itself such as facial recognition, multisensory experiences and a visual presenter in VR joined with the audience in VR. And after the event to keep the community alive with different experiences, from drone-after movies to weekly content for more engagement.
