Norm Joins EAR Micro as Advisor

EAR Micro was founded by passionate artists who are also engineers, who spent 8 years developing the most advanced personal audio product in history–powered by a tiny microcomputer, all miniaturized to fit into a form-factor just barely the size of a marble.  It’s an “EAR computer”.  Along the way, they attracted some big name partners, like world-renowned Klipsch Group, Inc., and Swatch Group in Switz

erland, to participate in the T10 true luxury audio: in-ear computer project.
What can an ear computer do?  Get us closer to Panopticom?

  • Stream hi-definition 96/24 music without the need for a separate portable hi-res player.
  • Control the ear computer via patented multi-touch, voice commands, patented head movements, and (soon) patented non-verbal mouth movements.
  • Connect other internet-enabled devices (like lighting, home automation, other apps, etc.) to be controlled from the ear computer seamlessly.
  • Download hearables ‘apps’, to add functionality and new use cases; the company is releasing an SDK to outside developers so that the ear computer can constantly grow new features/functions via purpose-built hearables apps—similar to apps for a smart watch or smart phone.
  • Be connected as a MIDI controller—soon enabling musicians to interface with a DAW, or control effect chains, lighting, pyrotechnics, or other MIDI events just using their head and mouth, never taking their hands off their instruments,

Our company has been focused on developing a blockchain specifically for ticketing for the last 4+ years.

  • Full control over secondary market + secondary market revenue
    • You are able to set a cap on resale prices
  • Payments in fiat currency or crypto
  • Know who is sitting in each seat even if one person buys the tickets for a group
  • Elimination of bots, scalpers, and black markets
  • Fan Engagement: By the very nature of the NFT ticket, it acts as a digital collectible for the fans of which you can offer added utility/access/perks
    • Communicate with the fans prior, during and after the event!
  • Plus, so easy to integrate into existing ticketing systems as our API and services do not need to learn “ticketing” as they already understand and speak “ticketing”

Norm Joins WingAcoustics as Advisor, Introducing Game-changing New Audio Technology

Norm introduces iconic/legendary artists, artist management teams and investors to new audio technology that is about to change the way the world hears music.  For the past 100+ years, most of the world’s audio devices generate sound using the fatally flawed cone driver.  

Introducing the revolutionary acousticWing®, which achieves what has been impossible until now

  • The World’s purest sound reproduction
  • You can finally hear all of the detail that has been masked by vibrating cone drivers.
  • Simple, rigid motor design, moves in a precise arc, mimicking a bird wing in flight
  • NO flexible diaphragm, NO rubbery surround,
  • NO uncontrollable shaking to pollute or distort your music

We aim to replace conventional cone loudspeakers with our revolutionary acousticWing® across vast tracts of global audio market verticals, including home audio, smart speakers, headphones, earphones, automotive and potentially mobile phones and televisions.

The acousticWing® is also the king of spatial sound – the industry’s latest buzz – achieving an incredibly wide dispersion field or ‘sweet spot’ compared to conventional cone speakers that are narrow and directional. Achieving the impossible, pure-fidelity audio, the acousticWing® separates instruments in even complex orchestral music, that reviewers and audio engineers have described as like being in the performance.

Speakers:The company’s hand-built test speakers achieved 5-star review in HiFi Choice magazine UK

Headphones:
The company’s headphone prototypes are being acclaimed as ‘World’s best sound’ by acoustic engineers and industry veterans.

  • Paddy Hill, Studio Manager, Roundhead Studios: “These are not prototypes, they are the best headphones in the world.”
  • John Groom, Audio Reviewer “You have provided a new paradigm — a redefinition of the high-end listening experience.”

With 15 patents granted, 25 more pending and Ex CEO of Beats by Dr. Dre, Susan Paley having joined the Board, the company is raising funds to:

  1. Launch the world’s first ‘pure-fidelity + ultra-deep bass’ audiophile headphone (Price $1,599 USD per pair)
  2. Launch Wing’s licensing program (there is already a growing interest from several global audio/consumer brands)

Norm Joins SwanDAO as Advisor

Swan is a decentralized volatility arbitrage hedge fund that crowdsources trading strategies from the smartest people in the world. Traders compete with one another to build the best trading strategies to profit from crypto volatility.

Trading strategies are tested in “The Hatchery,” an incubator and set of development tools to build, challenge and deploy strategies. Once approved and tested with limited capital, these strategies are promoted to “Swan Lakes” where capital restrictions are lessened and the public can invest. Investors can browse the available Swan Lake trading strategies, compare performance, and select which they would like to invest in.

Profits from the Swan Lakes are paid to the trading model developers, lake investors, and the Swan treasury.

Traders will be compensated as a percentage of the profits of the Swan Lake that uses their models. Over time, superior performance will attract capital, greater capital will attract better traders, and better traders will develop even better models, thus perpetuating a flywheel that drives Swan’s success.
