Helping Others

Our mission is to revolutionize the wearables industry by assisting individuals and improving humanity as a whole, one person at a time.


NAQI was developed to empower disabled veterans and those requiring assistive technology with touch-free, voice-free, and screen-free control of their entire connected world.


Inspired by his quadriplegic friend's desire to contribute to society, inventor Dave Segal envisioned an "Invisible User Interface" between humans and machines. To fulfill this vision, he developed breakthrough technology that reads electrical signals created by facial microgestures and uses them to navigate a nearly infinite number of commands and devices.


NAQI-enabled neural earbuds offer a safe, non-invasive alternative to brain implants, allowing users to perform countless tasks, from using wheelchairs to writing emails and even playing video games. This life-changing innovation provides newfound independence and opportunities for countless individuals who are frustrated with the user experience of traditional assistive devices.


Our breakthrough technology was also designed for everyday use, improving all aspects of our digital life by creating a hands-free, voice-free, and screen-free superpower.


NAQI represents the next generation of Human-Machine Interface (HMI).



We would like to dedicate these honors to our wounded veterans as well as the millions around the world who rely on assistive technology. 


We also wanted to dedicate these honors to our investment community and our R&D teams who have worked tirelessly to make NAQI a reality. 









The Team.

NAQI breakthrough technology is being developed by a global team that has been responsible for major breakthroughs in biotech and technology.

It includes engineers, software developers, patent specialists, pioneers in wireless and sensor technologies, hardware and software development, as well as product design, development, and commercialization.

Dave Segal

Founder, Chief Innovation Officer

Dave is an innovator, visionary inventor, and tech-smart executive who founded his first company at 23 years of age.

The first two cloud-service companies he started, which drew interest from the U.S. military and the private sector, were both successfully acquired. Tapping into his unique ability to create new concepts and technologies, he then developed and was awarded numerous patents, including over 20 international patents and patent continuations focused on thought-controlled and micro-gestural computing frameworks and technologies that form the foundation of NAQI.

Dave’s inspiration for NAQI stemmed from his desire to help wounded veterans — and those with severe spinal cord injuries — connect to the devices all around us, sometimes known as the Internet of Things. Seven years in the making, NAQI is now fulfilling that vision and more.

He carries out his research with NAQI’s international team, and in close collaboration with Harrisburg University, which includes Dave within the university’s corporate faculty. He also works out of the University’s Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CIE).

A sought-after speaker on the future of wearable and emerging neural interface technologies, Dave was selected as a Keynote Speaker for the 2016 IEEE 2nd International Conference on Applied and Theoretical Computing and Communication Technology, held in Bengaluru, India.

Let's Work Together.
