Some people have accused me of being "missing in action" the last months and I plead guilty. I've been very busy helping change the future of sports by taking on an additional role of Chief Financial Officer for the exciting wearable-tech startup I'm a partner in Sensory Performance Technology Inc.
I've done a lot of exciting things in my life and my involvement in this startup is in the top 3 of the list. Though we've yet to launch officially, our flagship product has garnered unsolicited testimonials from the biggest superstar celebrity athletes in the world, including this recent interview with NBA MVP Steph Curry on ESPN.
But We're Just Getting Started
In fact, we're in the unique and enviable position that every startup dreams of--we're inundated with requests from the biggest names in sports, from prominent doctors, from the most reputable media outlets in the world for information about our startup.
As exciting as this is, I personally believe the three new patents we have in the pipeline are going to offer exponentially greater returns to our future investors. My biggest challenge as the CFO has been to build then revise financial models which seem to become outdated weekly.
Have your people call my people
There is simply too much happening every day to tell the whole story about this exciting journey we're on. It's like having a tiger by the tail, driven forward by greater momentum every day leveraged by the groundbreaking work of our company Founder and CEO Ben White, who's been leading development in this wearable tech space for ten years. I wish I could answer all the inquiries of my friends and associates in the last months here, but since I can't, please CLICK HERE TO CONTACT ME DIRECTLY and we can set up a time to chat.
About Sensory Performance Technology
Sensory Performance Technology, Inc is a research and development tech company producing innovative and patented wearable tech product solutions to athletes, consumer, military, law enforcement and medical industries worldwide. Our flagship product, Eclipse™ Goggles, currently in high demand with some of the most prominent names in professional sports, is designed to improve sensory motor reflexes and cognitive performance using patented stroboscopic technology.
The Science Behind the Tech
In a world where athletes tirelessly pursue excellence, finding integrative ways to advance their visual processing capabilities has been a daunting problem. Intuitively, they understand the eyes are the conduit to the brain and physical motor reflexes depend entirely on speed and span of recognition (cognition). The Eclipse Goggles offer a wearable technology solution to this problem, increasing cognitive function in the brain by simulating a stroboscopic effect, thereby inducing visual stress deprivation. After continuous exposure through training, athletes learn how to compensate for this sensory overload and subsequently modify gaze behavior, making visual information processing more efficient.
