Presentation Summary

Custom Hearables enable a $128 billion market opportunity and most importantly will help anyone with a smart phone and a pair of ears. The human ear is the only 3 dimensional place in the human body where you can comfortably place a sensor continuously and unobtrusively. United Sciences' 3D ear scanner creates custom sensors that fit perfectly inside the human ear. This fit enables a wearable computing platform inside a custom Bluetooth headphone which can obtain reliable biometric data (EEG, EMG, ECG, GSR) with real medical efficacy. Custom Hearables access the mind and body in ways that have never been possible in a consumer or medical device before, so this is just the beginning and the opportunities are limitless.
