It has been announced today that Rosetta Stone has acquired Vivity Labs, Inc. (creator of Fit Brains’ successful portfolio of brain training products). The close connection between language learning and brain training makes our company a natural strategic fit for Rosetta Stone, which is continuing its rapid expansion beyond language learning and into adjacent categories of technology-driven education.
The rapid expansion of the brain fitness category underscores a new public desire for maintaining and enhancing cognitive health. According to a 2012 study by SharpBrains, a research firm that tracks the sector, the market for brain health software grew from $295 million in annual revenues in 2009 to more than $480 million at the end of last year. Experts estimate that the market will exceed $3 billion by 2020. With the support of Rosetta Stone’s revered brand and global distribution network, we anticipate an exciting new phase of growth for Fit Brains!
We can’t wait to start working with Rosetta Stone & continue to build great brain training & educational products for you!

The original Fit Brains Trainer has been highly successful, used and praised by people all over the world. However, we have gotten many requests for additional tools & products and we knew we had to start expanding our training to the entire family. We saw the lack of a comprehensive brain trainer for young children, and heard from many of our fans that they wanted a Fit Brains app geared toward their kids. It was here that Fit Brains: Sparky’s Adventures was born.
We hope this new app will bring education into playtime fun for your children. Leave us a comment below and let us know your child’s experience with the app!
