The mind is a powerful thing—and must be flexed to keep growing and expanding. Each year, the world’s leading thinkers and influencers gather to do just that at the annual TED Conference in Long Beach, Calif.    To engage with the minds of TEDsters at TED2013, we hosted “A Mind for Design” themed social space and lounge area celebrating The Young, The Wise and The Undiscovered (this year’s theme). It featured a reactive environment that changed color as guests engage in the space and brainwave-inspired seating. The space boasted a live Twitter feed that streams real-time tweets from TED attendees, so visitors won’t miss out on anything in between Talks.

The social space also included EEG mind challenges and Brainscope scans that identify what type of mind “tribe” Tedsters belong to: explorer, foodie, techie, philanthropist or creative. Guest could flex their mind muscles with 3-D wooden brainteasers and enjoy healthy snacks while rehashing the last session’s Talks and making new connections.
