PRESS RELEASE Media Contact: Julia Petrova Media Relations Coordinator Golden Networking +1-414-FORUMS0 firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.goldennetworking.net The power of "4D Sound" in Able Planet ViviTouch headphones with CEO Dirk Schapeler @WearableCompCon Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking brings Wearable Computing Conference 2013 New York City (www.wearable- computing-conference.com), "Revolutionizing the Human Experience Through Next-Generation Technology", November 7. New York City, NY, USA (November 2, 2013) -- Dirk Schapeler, Chief Executive Officer of ViviTouch, will be speaker at Golden Networking's Wearable Computing Conference 2013 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), "Revolutionizing the Human Experience Through Next-Generation Technology", to be held in New York City, on November 7. Pioneered by Artificial Muscle, Inc. (AMI), a Bayer MaterialScience company, ViviTouch manufactures haptic gadgets for gaming, mobile devices, and headphones. Its actuators produce a one-of- a- kind cinematic sensation that bridges the senses of seeing, hearing and feeling. AMI is looking to capitalize on the growing market in haptic technology and meet consumer needs. Therefore ViviTouch becomes AMI's main product in this market. What they didn't realize at the time was how important their creation would be beyond the entertainment industry. Mr. Schapeler joined ViviTouch as the CEO in April 2010. Prior to ViviTouch, Schapeler built up the Electro Active Polymers team at Bayer MaterialScience in Germany and worked in the New Business group where he scouted out markets and applications for Electro Active Polymers, as well as new materials for automotive and consumer electronics. Schapeler had also held program management and engineering positions at large automotive suppliers, successfully introducing innovative products to the market place. His experience and expertise in consumer electronics, business management and material technology make him an ideal speaker for this upcoming wearable conference. How exactly are Able Planet and ViviTouch merging together to enact 4D sound? Able Planet has a technology called Sound Fit. You slide a personal listening device into your ear, press a button, and it expands and locks into the ear canal. "Every time you halve the distance to the ear drum, you double the volume without turning the sound up. If you can seat or deliver sound that close to the ear drum, then the volume you're providing to the patient...well, you'll actually be able to activate the hearing in that patient." Able Planet's technology allows an altered audio signal to activate the hearing organs in your ear. Sound travels through the ear drum, the middle ear, and is then processed by the inner ear. ViviTouch technology - which would be the coating around this device - expands to create a wide surface area of contact making it the most efficient bone conduction technology in the world." "[Their] haptic technology, it circumvents the ear and goes right to the auditory system of the brain."
