Noodle Juice is a mobile app that fosters freedom of expression, collaboration, and stream of consciousness, allowing creatives to learn and practice creative thinking in the proper environment. It provides fun, productive games to help users practice creative thinking. The app is paired with a juice that uses active ingredients to achieve cognitive states (relaxed, focused, sleepy). Each flavor has a physical game to compete and unlocks secret games in the app.
