I have spent the last six months engineering a light bulb that has been specially designed to flicker at a rate of 40HZ.
6 Months ago I heard on an episode of Radio Lab called Bringing Back Gamma (http://www.radiolab.org/story/bringing-gamma-back/) that MIT has been doing some really interesting research pertaining to the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease (Click on the link to listen to the full episode yourself). Long story short - Researchers at MIT found that exposing mice to 40Hz light decreased the signs and symptoms of their Alzheimer's Disease.
I am acutely and personally aware of the horrors of Alzheimer's disease. Anything that could potentially slow or stop the progression would be a miracle for so many people all over the world.
I know that this therapy has not been proven to work in human's yet, but I have seen how quickly Alzheimer's Disease can move. I created this bulb for people out there who don't have the time to wait and are looking for something they can try that may give them hope. Also, I have seen many people out there looking for bulbs to try and have been making some really cool DIY rigs, but those can be expensive and difficult to use, so I came up with a better solution. A simple light bulb that can screw into most existing household sockets
If in time we find that this product does not work, I will shut down the site and stop selling the bulbs, but in the meantime it's just a lightbulb, and maybe, just maybe, it will help. In addition, a portion of each sale will be donated to Alzheimer's Research.
