The company emanates from my 2006 discovery that primate red-green vision evolved for detecting oxygenation modulations of blood under the skin so that primates could see emotions, health and state. Out of that discovery, we were able to patent the first (and only) optical filter technology that passively augments visibility of these oxygenation modulations, as well as related technology. The company primarily serves two main markets. (1) Medical personnel wear our vein glasses, protective eyewear that enhances visibility of veins and health signs. We also sell distinct technology that enhances visibility of bruising and blood pooling under the skin for wound and urgent care. Our vein glasses technology has been shown to work in the Journal of Emergency Medical Services. (2) Colorblind people wear one of our technologies that enhances the signal that red-green vision is for and that color deficients are deficient at. Unlike our competitors, our tech has been shown to aid colorblindness in Invest Ophth Vis Sci. In addition to CEO, I have been the director of digital marketing and PR, which has led to thousands of sales, hundreds of testimonials, and coverage in hundreds of magazines and news stories, including the New York Times.
The Human Factory LLC is a research lab I founded with the aim of bringing cutting edge insights from the cognitive and brain sciences to the next generation of human-centered technology. I have consulted over the years with dozens of firms on a wide range of topics including augmented reality, affective computing, consumer experience, health perception, and even cosmetics.
The Emotion Chip
The emotional expression research has led to technology (patent pending), and to a large variety of applications in affective computing and emotional artificial intelligence. The web site is currently fairly uninformative, but will have details soon.
I can’t say much about this yet, other than that it concerns innovative mathematics and technology allowing novel forms of financial activities.
