    ✔️ Trigger your mirror neurons

    ✔️ Get accountability on demand

    ✔️ Take inspiration from interesting people

    Trigger your
    mirror neurons

    Observing others do things triggers your brain to follow suit. It's why you yawn when somebody else yawns and why we feel more productive in a library.

    It's to do with 'mirror neurons' in your brain. Portholes trigger these neurons to aid your productivity. 

    Get accountability
    on demand

    FLOWN's Flocks let you interact with real people in a live virtual co-working space.

    But if you miss the start, or can't fit a Flock around your commitments, Portholes are there for an accountability boost. 

    Take inspiration from interesting people

    From university professors to playwrights, CEOs to composers, Portholes give you a window into the world of an inspiring deep worker.

    Be spurred on by the inspiring flow of professionals focused on their work, and immerse into your tasks with ease.

    "Like having really motivated coworkers"

    I'm a teacher and a coach, but in between sessions I work alone. Portholes are like having really motivated and inspiring coworkers.

    "I love Portholes"

    I don't always have time to join a Flock, so these are the next best thing. They help me stay on task, plus I love seeing how other creatives work. I love portholes.

    Our library of Porthole videos will keep on growing. Here's a selection of the people we've captured deep in their work.
