About Viscog Productions

Viscog Productions, Inc. was founded in 2003 with the goal of collecting powerful demonstrations for use in presentations by speakers, teachers, consultants, and trainers. Each of our collections includes many short videos and demonstrations that allow presenters to induce failures of awareness in their audiences and to illustrate how easily people can miss the obvious. All of the videos on our DVDs come directly from the research of scientists who study attention and perception. Because we provide the actual demonstrations used by the scientists in their research, the videos lack Hollywood production values. Critically, though, they have documented effectiveness. With each collection, we tips for presenting and explaining the demonstrations.

About Our Products

All of our products are now available exclusively as digital downloads. They can be played using software that came with your computer or using free programs like VLC Media Player. Customers also can burn a copy our our downloadable DVDs to a disk for playback on regular DVD players. Immediate digital downloads mean no shipping/handling charges, no wait for products to arrive in the mail, and no sales tax.

Our first product, Surprising Studies of Visual Awareness (vol 1) was released in 2003 and has been used throughout the world. It includes the now-famous gorilla/basketball selective attention test from Daniel Simons and Christopher Chabris. In 2008, we released Surprising Studies of Visual Awareness (vol 2), a new collection of demos that includes the famous "door" study from Daniel Simons and Daniel Levin. We also released a DVD that included all of the contents of both volumes on a single DVD disk (vol 1+2). You can view and order all of our products on our Products page.
