LATEST DIALOGUES Transformative Technology Exhibition at SAND14

Join us for the first Transformative Technology exhibition at SAND 2014. The SAND conference is a hub of influence and community at the intersection of science and consciousness. As part of that tradition, SAND will be exhibiting products and art at the cutting edge of the rapidly expanding Transformative Technology space, focused at the intersection of technology, consciousness, and human well-being.

Transformative Technology
There is a growing recognition of technology’s role in increasing human well-being, decreasing stress/anxiety, and ultimately getting at the fundamental causes of human suffering. This is supported by an increasing understanding – through psychology, neuroscience, meditation research, etc. – of the mechanisms underlying experiences such as peace, compassion, unconditional love, and the fundamental sense of who and what we are.
These Transformative Technologies, which can be seen as an extension, or evolution of traditional tools, have been explored and developed for decades, but recently there appears to be an increase in interest and activity. Examples of this technology are emerging in academia, consumer wearables, gaming, mobile devices, and beyond. The frameworks within which these tools are developed range from Eastern traditions (meditation, yoga, enlightenment, etc) to western psychology, physics, flow states, Transhumanism, Essential Self Technologies… and too many more to list.

The precise boundaries of the space are still forming as people, projects and research begin to emerge and define the territory. Generally speaking, Transformative Technologies are actual hardware and/or software devices (i.e. they run on electricity), developed based on credible science/research, that can produce a reliable and positive change in human experience. These technologies might be consumer devices, medical devices, interactive exhibits or art pieces.

HeartCart by BioFluent TechnologiesHeartCart is a two person heart and breath synchronization pod. An immersive sound/light environment along with advanced bio-sensing uses science and technology to guide two people into a deep sense of connection. Each person feels the other person's heartbeat vibrating in their body through a personal subwoofer. And each person experiences the other person's breath as a halo of pulsing light, and the sound of ocean waves. As the pair's heart and breath merge in the space, the sense of boundary between self and other begins to dissolve.Art Project
MindSpa Personal Development System by A/V Stim, LLCAuditory and Visual Stimulation (AVS) is a passive brainwave training procedure that can enable a person to alter physiological responses to induce a desired state of mind through the entrainment process. The induction method by which this occurs is known as Frequency Following Response. Through this natural response mechanism, the mind matches the corresponding external stimulus.Commercial Product - Selling Product at Conference
Choice Compass by Mossbridge Institute, LLCOur decisions impact the quality of our lives. For choices that matter, tap into your inner compass with the Choice Compass App.
Choice Compass uses your body's natural wisdom, expressed through heartbeat patterns picked up via your phone or tablet's camera, to help you make more joyful choices.
Commercial Product - Demo/Display Only
HeartMath/emWave by Institute of HeartMathHeartMath connects us with the heart of “who we truly are,” helping us live healthier and happier lives to build a brighter future. Scientific research focuses on heart intelligence, heart-rate variability, heart-brain interactions and the connection between all things. HeartMath’s emWave technology displays heart rhythm patterns in real time, showing when you are in an optimal state in which the heart, mind and emotions are operating in-sync. Commercial Product - Selling Product at Conference
Pulse and Bloom by BrainBotBrainBot makes biosensors that encourage calm and connection. They are part of interactive sculptures, smartphone apps and wearable devices.Art Project
The BioTron by BioTronEsisThe BioTron is a large translucent cocoon inhabited by a super organism of hyper exotic alien light creatures on it’s outer shell. Inside, the cocoon grows thick layers of white fur for humans to sink comfortably into before being entranced. Then, all who enter her, drift off with the entrainment frequencies of the blinking lights as they are lulled into a deep trance like hypnotic state. BioTronEsis was a 2014 Burning Man HONORARIUM Art Installation.Art Project
Reincarnation Lounge Chairs by Alan MacyReincarnation Lounge Chairs explores the idea of human nervous system transference and interchange. Participants sit facing each other and they experience the feeling of their own heartbeat being swapped with that of the other person facing.Art Project
Indra's Net by Peter TjeerdsmaInside a tetrahedral mirror-box floats a silvered sphere, edge-lit LEDs forming a web of light patterned by EEG and audio sensors.

“Imagine a multidimensional spider’s web in the early morning covered with dew drops. And every dew drop contains the reflection of all the other dew drops. And, in each reflected dew drop, the reflections of all the other dew drops in that reflection. And so ad infinitum. That is the Buddhist conception of the universe in an image.” ~ Alan Watts

One Response to “Transformative Technology Exhibition at SAND14”

  1. October 19, 2014 at 10:13 am, Paolo Manzelli said:

    SEARCH FOR PARTNERS : The “Quantum Creativity” project intends to go forward the completness of the extenson od quantum science on the basis of the ideas expressed by Ervin Shrordinger in the book “What is Life” (1935) where for the first time was taken into account the “entangled interactions” as a solution of the “no-meccanical” interpretation of the communication properties of living systems.

    > Erwin Schrödinger Quotes

    > “Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe.”

    > “The world is given to me only once, not one existing and one perceived. Subject and object are only one.”

    > “The subatomic particles have no meaning as isolated entities, but can only be understood as interconnections”:

    > –—————————–

    > What is required from partners:

    > 1) Work in a long term vision ,novelty fundational to Quantum Creativity FET OPEN project on the basis of interdisciplinary research and development focused on the completeness of quantum science applied to life sciences This mission will be enhanced in order to establish a new basis for “non-mechanical “ understanding of science and to develop bio-devices minetic that will be able to communicate with the brain.


    > 2) Develop simulations and educational demonstrations on the theme of entanglement and coherent communication borg in micro and macro-entanged dimensions.


    > Main issues:

    > -Quantum Brain: focus on quantum non-locality in the communication of nano-synapses.

    > – Quantum Informatics: focus on quantum perceprion of light and objects looking to understand both: specific and holistic brain functoning.


    > Expected impact :

    > Initiating a radically new line of technology by establishing Proof-of-Principle of a new technological possibility, obtained from new scientific underpinning developed on the basis of sharing new visionary ideas to high potential research and innovation players of a “QuantumCreativity international network” in order to making leading- edge of quantum science and technology innovation, open, collaborative,creative and closer to the cultural change of contemporary society.
