I met Ariel, the founder of InteraXon, last month, and had quite a bit of time to chat with her about her work and life in general. She is a great lecturer, loves her subject as much as anyone I have ever met, and personally seems really, really cool.

They are most famous for their project during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, when they made a system whereby users could control lights at the CN Tower and Niagara Falls with their minds.  But they've done lots of other cool things as well.  Now apparently they are hiring (presumably for Toronto location), see below.
