Because it's Possible

    Go Flow in stock, v2 in stock, EEG in stock, v3 very nearly ready. tRCS mode is quite exciting. Few tweaks before we ship to improve it.
  • 7th March foc.us update

    tldr: foc.us/me annoying login bug fixed, v2 on way, v3 nearly ready, EEG in stock. foc.us is a "vertically integrated" company. What that means is we do everything ourselves. What that means is we are responsible for all the problems. Typically startups will outsource as much work as possible. So front-end stuff like logistics and e-commerce are handled by 3rd parties. During product development they will use wi-fi and bluetooth modules to save on certification and development time. Not to mention documentation, advertising and all the other thousand things required. But not at foc.us. That's not to say we haven't tried, we have. We just found that there are lots of problems when starting a business like this. And we found that the best way to get problems fixed was to own them. To take charge, if you will. I mention this because we've had a few website/shipping/app/firmware/supply-chain problems recently. But one by one they are almost resolved. It's difficult to say what "normal service" is, but it will be resumed shortly :) P.S. What do you think about the sports caps in black?

  • CES, V3 and More - 19th January Update

    It's been a busy few months at foc.us towers. Here is a quick update of what's happening. The successor to the massively popular V2, the V3 is now available to buy. We're very excited because it includes a new type of stimulation invented here at foc.us studios - tRCS - Rippled Current. What is rippled current? It's a dynamic-time frequncy designed to increase peak alpha brainwaves. Read more here. tRCS is only available from the focus V3 (coming soon to EEG Dev Kit) so order here to get your alpha vision. Talking of brainwaves, the EEG Only Dev Kit is now in stock for next day shipping. All 2nd batch EEG orders will ship by the end of January. Go Flow Sports orders will also ship shortly, small delay with inbound stock from China. Lastly, CES was great fun. Thanks to everyone who said hello. See you again next year!
  • EEG Dev Kit Update December 28th

    tl:dr; EEG Dev Kit production completed. Electrodes almost finished. Orders shipping soon. Manufacturing electronic products can be difficult. Making 10 is easy - they can be done by hand. Making 10k is easy, everything is on reels direct from the supplier. But making 100 or 300 or 1k is where the dragons be. Big manufacturers don't want small orders like this. Components are not sourced on reels so must be checked individually. Setup time and overhead fees are disproportionate. Everything is a PITA. This is what foc.us fights with. But today's story has a happy ending. Our new PCBA factory is much bigger than the two we have used before: They use the same pick and place machines: But the quality control is WAY better as they x-ray every PCB one by one. The EEG Dev Kit has nine BGA components so this step is crucial in identifying any possible problems. This has resulted in the best yields we've ever seen - 99%! The cost of EEG components is crazy high, so a yield of 1% (it's actually less than 1%, I rounded up) is fantastic news for us. Each Dev Kit includes three pcbs - main, sockets and electrodes. This is the sockets PCB exiting the oven. All that remains to complete is the new EEG+ electrodes. They are nearly done and will be very soon. We will be using this factory for all PCB work henceforth. If they can get 99% yield for EEG we expect 110% for Go Flow ;)
