Sequenced is an upcoming animated series by Apelab for VR headsets that’s pioneering a new method of delivering episodic content, one that tailors itself to the individual viewer in the slightest way imaginable. And all that Sequenced wants from you, the passive observer, is your attention.

Brain-to-brain communication is becoming a reality, says Andrea Stocco, who sees a future where minds meet to share ideas.
