Focuscope – navigate creativity

Wilhelm Krohmer

Focuscope ist a tool based on bisociative creativity techniques. Bisociation is the ability to connect things that share no common connections. It is about letting your mind wander freely, without forcing yourself to think just in one direction. Focuscope hits you with random words, triggering bisociations. Just by thinking about them, with your project in mind, you will start connecting different subjects and thereby trigger new ideas.
