BluEyeQ Philosophy

Philosophically, BluEyeQ was formed based on a belief that there is a symbiotic intersection between technology, nature, and humanity. Industry experiences with advanced signal analysis, wireless communications, distributed networking, and bio-inspired algorithm development repeatedly reveal uncanny parallels between technological advances, biological evolution, and humanity’s innate desire for connectedness. BluEyeQ leverages this guiding perspective in our product designs.

Danish researchers analyzed extensive genetic data and concluded that all blue-eyed people alive today share a common ancestor that had a genetic mutation approximately 6,000 to 10,000 years ago. This data driven discovery is part of the inspiration for the “BluEyeQ” company name (in addition to the founder’s incredibly intelligent and beautiful blue-eyed wife). Innovations we are discovering today were figured out by nature long ago.
