Why Frank was invited to TEDxEindhoven
New ideas come with new views of the world and new ways to experience the world. Our world is more and more digital but we as humans are not yet equipped to live a life as digital beings.

Pushing the boundaries of sensing the digital realm and enriching the experience of human machine interaction.
