Spy Tech Memory Challenge
We were approached by the production team for Gadget Man in the early stages of an idea they had for one of the themes of the show: Self Improvement. The idea of the show was that Richard Ayoade would be able to beat world renowned memory champion Dominic O’Brien - by using covert technology!
We developed the system that would allow him to do so. With a small spy camera that fit inside his jacket button and, image and text-recognition and an ear piece all he had to do was hold the card up to view it - as you would normally do to view your card - our system would then remember the order and use speech synthesis to feed them to him via a hidden earpiece when it was time to recall the cards.
