AGC’s most recent initiative, a collaboration with Think Lab, has resulted in establishing a new ‘Deep Thinking Space’ at AGC headquarters that draws on Think Lab’s extensive know-how.
This Deep Thinking Space employs a variety of innovative approaches to enhance mental focus. These include the use of high-resolution sound to create an “environment that promotes focus” as well as Japanese Cypress and citrus aromas to create “conditions that help people enter a state of mental focus.” The realization of such an optimal focusing space is expected to boost both the productivity and creativity of staff.

3: An eyeglass-fashioned wearable device that estimates the potential of wearer focus and drowsiness from blinking frequency/intensity and posture. It uses a three-point ocular sensor developed by JINS to measure potential change based on eye movement, and a six-axis sensor (acceleration, gyro) to measure the wearer’s posture.
