When Antoine Cartier-Wells was given a scholarship to study abroad in the United States, he headed for Los Angeles. While he was there he founded Memorize, a small company that he would use as jumping point to launch his invention, the Sensation Engine, technology that would allow humans to share or manipulate their memories.
While he was there, he met his future wife, Molly, who was one of the first test the limits of his Sensation Engine. She eventually began working him to further formulate the idea behind the technology and promote it, making deals with other businesses. Following the death of Molly in 2019, Antoine officially relocated Memorize headquarters, now a booming center of the his corporation, to Hyderabad, India.
