Medford, MA (PRWEB) February 1, 2011
A new mobile phone application called aDose (http://www.thenewfreedom.net/adose/) has been released by New Freedom Applications which induces a variety of drug-like effects in users, including increased energy and focus, relaxation, enhanced creativity and even hallucinations.
The app, which is available on the Android market, uses specifically tuned patterns of sound and light to create synchronized brainwave patterns in users. The process is known as Audio Visual Entrainment and the effects have been known since the early 20th century, although this is the first time that the technology has been so widely available and convenient. Medically, it has been shown through a review of 20 studies on brainwave entrainment that AVE is effective in improving cognition and behavioral problems, and alleviating stress and pain.
Up until now, medical audio visual entrainment devices have cost hundreds of dollars and only work with a small subset of sounds and colors. aDose uses the capabilities of modern smartphones to create a wide variety of sounds and patterns of colors for only a fraction of the cost.
"It's exciting that we're able to use mobile phones in such a unique way," said aDose lead developer Rich Jones. "Hopefully this will introduce a whole new group of people to the benefits of brainwave entrainment."
Future plans for the app include a way for people to create their own sequences and to share them with other users of the app, as well as a version for Apple's iPhone. New Freedom Apps warns that aDose should not be used by people with photosensitive epilepsy and that users should wait before operating vehicles after using the app.
