Earliest Discoveries. NULYX has emerged from years of research in Neuroscience in Canada and Europe. Its heritage can be traced to Tesla," the first hacker," who first pioneered the patterning of energy as waveforms for transmission. Today, NULYX patterns signals and sends them via Bluetooth from a Smartphone app to a special conductor chip in a headset to create the NULYX special effect. (See: Our Science.)
Neuromodulation with Music. Listening to music is among the most rewarding human experiences. Peak responses with music can range from the measurable equivalent of eating a pleasurable meal up to that of psychoactive drugs. Music can arouse feelings of euphoria and can be accompanied by "chills" which are now also measurable as an experience.
New Research. Recently, music heard through a headphone was traced conclusively to show release of the neurotransmitter Dopamine. Intense peak pleasure was measured as chills sensations as follows:
Energizing the Story or Song. Writers and composers have long known how to program peak emotions using the narrative form. We see this in it's simplest two-step form above, comprising: (1) anticipation; and, (2) release or dramatic resolution accompanied by neurotransmitter release. We see this same effect of peak emotional high again when our team finally wins The Series or Superbowl with many smaller highs preceding the finale. NULYX is additive and layered on top of present content to amplify its intensity using a weak pulsed magnetic waveform like adding caffeine with alchohol to stimultate neurotransmitter dopamine release.
NULYX Engineers Emotional Experience. Remarkably, emotional immersion can be engineered by neuromodulation and added or stacked as numerous studies show. NULYX tracks the unfolding of music or story and then is added to amplify emotional effect.
Peak Experieces in Music. Listen on You Tube to the Finale of the William Tell Overture, the rousing Hallelujah Chorus, The Ride of the Valkyre, or America the Beautiful to feel how this time course of neurostimulation plays out in the composition.
Or, in Everyday Life. The success of Facebook and Twitter rest, in part, on neuromodulation. Neuroscientists at Harvard have just shown their secret. Brain imaging has revealed that social media derive much of its success by providing a vehicle for self-disclosure which occupies 30- 40% of our daily speech. Here, disclosure stimulates measurable surges in dopamine release. See: Full Research (Self-Disclosure Harvard) Article.
A Fundamental Discovery. Prescription medication, coffee, music - just about any stimulus can trigger neurostimulation. In addition to music, both ultrasound and magnetic waveforms can also be programmed with narrative media for neuromodulation. This provides a big opprotunity for content development. The operant mechanism in the pivotal role of neurotransmitter Dopamine as a reward and progenitor signaling molecule in all of the above is now believed to influence the release of tiny amounts of natural morphine by white blood cells for the pleasurable rewarding response. And intriquingly for content developers, morphine is known for being the most euphoric of medications.
An interesting correlation with these findings can be made between the repeated administration of magnetic fields in numerous studies and pain relief. In just one tentative study cited immediately below, a weak and pulsed magnetic waveform was administered using a headset for pain relief wherein it was observed to be equivalent in it's effectiveness to that of prescription Morphine. For how this works, see: "Endogenous Morphine: Up-to Date Review 2011" by Stefano and Kream, Full Research (Endogenous Morphine) Article. And also See: Full Research (Pain Management) Article using a headset. For more discussion see Our Science.
A New Medium for Developers
BLUETOOTH: a Two - Way Radio on a Chip:
BLUETOOTH: HEADPHONE NEWS FOR DEVELOPERS
Bluetooth Trumps VR. Bluetooth is about to release a wide variety of specifications for synchronization of economical 3D entertainment applications including theatres, TV, and display devices of all kinds.
Bluetooth 3D. Foremost for 3D TV will be stereo headphones deployed with Bluetooth to increase immersion. Headphones are combined with 3D Bluetooth glasses using the new Bluetooth 3D Synchronization Protocol. Argueably, a far more practical and mass-market solution for total immersion than present Virtual Reality. Special Bluetooth 3D glasses and Bluetooth high quality stereo will be streamed and synchronized with 3D display and stereo headphones to create emotional immersion for an an amazing experience, as depicted below:
Bluetooth Dual View for Gamers. For game developers, the revolutionary Bluetooth Dual View interactive system allows two players to have two different views on the same display --- just like in real life combat. Our NULYX developers will immediately get all the Bluetooth details on these and other applications long before hardware release.
Bluetooth Integration with NULYX. The NULYX Headphone connects by Bluetooth to the IPhone or Android device automatically. All smartphones now have Bluetooth as does 60% of new TV. The total of Bluetooth enabled devices is at 2+ BILLION a year and rapidly growing - opening vast opportunities for apps arising from this accelerating interoperability.
Bluetooth Enables New Headphone Applications. For example, who wants to read Email when your headphone can do it for you with Bluetooth; while driving, running, biking, or busy in the kitchen. For developers, Bluetooth is a recognizable brand and has become a valuable resource in the consumer decision making process. See: Video 1 and Video 2.
Developer Headphone Test Modules:
Our First Audience is Developers : those who want to create applications for big markets. With the NULYX System Development Kit (SDK), the imaginations of Wizards will run wild. Imagine being able to amp music, games and handheld apps to a new level of intensity.
And, beginning in June 2013, we plan to host Skype international hackathons - just like Facebook does - to bring together our then new community of hacker and developer contributors together in a 12 hour game-like application environment to experiment and build new apps with NULYX.
Development Possibilities are Endless. Combining our licensed and registered SDK with our headphones makes a test module ( perk tiers 3 and 4 ). It's all you need for designing, testing and studying neuromodulation for entire packages of content. Or, try NULYX with weight - loss workouts where hundreds of apps, sensors and devices support the fitness industry and need more intensity. Apps with NULYX will seem to make tedious routines to pass by more swiftly. Routines with NULYX combined with music will give you wings! For examples of present workout apps see: wahoofitness.com.
Programming Is Easy. Waveforms can be graphically configured into patterns like objects, then into strings and finally pulse trains using the NULYX SDK and our simple drawing tool that manipulates straight lines for constructing waveforms from your laptop or PC. Waveforms can be copyrighted the same as Music.
Programming Waveforms. The NULYX configuration tool for drawing is one of our favorite aspects of the Project. For example, here's one way to break down a basic waveform into its constituent parts for configuration. Like composing music, patterns of these waveforms can then be synchronized with the content to intensify the broad arc of the story or song for more exhilarating experiences.
Market Opportunity for Developers:
-- It's all in the Arithmetic.
Why Develop NULYX apps? Application development is about being in the right place at the right time. History shows that only the earliest adopters in app development can seize the low hanging fruit. If you could turn the clock back, what app theme would you develop? Today, with nearly a million apps it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish new offerings in a crowded marketplace. Increasingly, only new features (pixie dust) can give you an edge.
Headsets .For application developers, headphones are presently a $2 Billion market worldwide ( $1.2 Billion US). This market is broad and deep, estimated to be 20X larger than for the Smartwatch. Increasingly, headphones have become a place to get away to - your own private retreat. Also, they are now combined with other devices and technologies like gaming, Skype, computers, tablets and TV.
A Captive Audience. The linkage and interoperability between the smartphone and headphone via Bluetooth holds audience attention. Now, visualize games, music, distant learning, self-help and the entire world of content-- all made more intense with greater audience attention provided with the combination of NULYX and a headphone.. See: Full Research (Learning) Article. See: Full Research (Video Game) Article.
Specific Gaming and Education Applications. Intriguingly, development opportunities exist for gaming applications to stimulate Dopamine and other neurotransmitters to improved visual processing, speed reflexes and cognitive processing as US Army now studies show. Result: WIN MORE OFTEN---the Ultimate Secret Weapon. For Learning, Dopamine stimulation enhances memory and speed of recall, replacing study drugs and without the later letdown. Result: BETTER GRADES.
Additional applications for Developers identified with neurotransmission described below can be found in the NULYX published research archive in the Tier 4 - "Mad Scientist" Perk:
We are working with the best researchers and techs in the industry -
SPECIAL THANKS: To Distinguished Professor, Dwight Streit, Ph.D and his staff at the UCLA Engineering Institute of Technology Advancement for their support which helped us answer some key questions. ( Link: See Letter.) Thanks also to staff at the Behavoral Neuroscience Laboratory, Laurentian University in Canada and to its Director, Dr. Michael A Persinger, and especially to its Chief Technology Officer Stanley Koren,and to Alex W. Thomas, Ph.D at Western Ontario University and the Lawson Research Institute staff which was patient and helpful.
Furthermore, special thanks are particularly owed to: Aaron R. Seitz, Ph.D,. UC Riverside. Doctor Seitz’s pioneering work in perception provided the basis and overarching theory for the application by NULYX of a way to make entertainment richer and more immersive.
Thanks too, to the chief technology officers: Richard Kulavick ( Turtle Beach-gaming headphones ), Tony DiChiro ( Monster Products mfg.of Beats by Dr.Dre ), Ed Woodard (Grado Labs), Dr.Testuro Oishi (Skullcandy), Dan Gauger (Bose Corporation, co-inventor of Noise Cancellation) and special thanks to Walt Husak (Dolby Labs), Sean Cooney ( Warner Bros VP, Advanced Technology), Roberto Padovani (Qualcomm EVP and former CTO), and Faroog Hameed ( Broadcom - Bluetooth ). And, there are nameless others involved but, they could get fired if we told who they are.
Part 3: Our Science
Deeper into Nulyx. It was Dr. Aaron Seitz at the University of California who for us first identified weak magnetic fields as stimulating neurotransmiter release and causing measurable effects below conscious perception. He observed that these fields could potentiate "organized and meaningful improvement of discriminative performance,"( as, in gaming ) and that, "magnetic stimulation could boost signals to surpass learning thresholds," (as, in Internet and Distance Learning). See: Full Article.
Published Headset Research. The first published research using a headset occurred in Canada in 2007. This effect was described in a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial using a pulsed low frequency waveform from a magnetic field. What has become NULYX was first observed as an artefact in Medicine in MRI imaging and was seen again in pain and depression relief. Initially, it was tested using a headset for pain relief in a published comparative study against prescription oral pain relievers of the opioid morphine, oxycodone and codeine class. Morphine is generally considered the most euphoric of pain relievers. See Published Research on this Headset Effect: See: Full Article.
Neurostimulation. A pleasant neurostimulative, even euphoric effect, was consistently observed again at another Canadian University. There, pleasant effects and even transcendent experiences had been facilitated using a headpiece in 19 published experiments spanning a number of years. Analysis, subsequent re-analysis and correlation of the data from 407 subjects, confirmed the effect. Most significantly, subjects described their experiences as," personally very meaningful, richer, more emotional and real." See Published Research on 19 studies: International Journal of Neuroscience 116: 1079-1096,2006: See: Full Article.
Pairing Experimentation with NULYX Headphones:
Sharing Feelings. Feelings appear to have been conveyed silently in the laboratory between subjects by converting single words representing a feeling recorded digitally for transmission as a natural weak magnetic waveform. In addition to music creating sonic energy, the electronics in all headphones create a weak magnetic field which could convey single word information to the mind. (Words used in the experiments were like " marvelous," " happy," " giving," "comfortable,"'and " beautiful.").
The implications of these tentative findings are potentially significant - a phenomenon that has been reproduced and published twice. It could be fun - an intriguing experiment with a special friend! Applications exist for use by gamers in combination with Bluetooth Dual View.
All those who purchase two or more NULYX headphones will receive instructions on how to set up these experiments. See reward tier 4. See Full Article.
