Our Chief Panda Officer, always near the genesis of an inspired idea (or cocktail), often recalls Marcel Proust’s wit for answering Victorian parlor game questions. Pixel has traveled far from the salons of Paris, but her interest remains piqued in which questions truly reflect a person’s character. Packing just the right amount of punch, NJI created The Pixel Questionnaire to give a glimpse into the inner workings of some of our most intriguing minds.

Fond of adventure, Pixel and Project Manager Jamie White globetrotted to India to indulge in their favorite cola, Thums Up. While sipping on the fizzy drink, the duo engaged in a spirited debate over the intricate concepts of quantum physics, brainstorming inventive ways to teleport and enjoy their beloved cola regularly.
