nVeil Art 600x600 type-on-white.png

While we were developing nVeil, Stanford's Psychology Department head saw it in action and asked if we would come down to demonstrate it to a graduate seminar she taught, as an example of "proximal incidence" (things occurring close enough to appear to be in sync). We had noticed the phenomenon too, when watching nVeiled video and listening to music. Almost any video, and almost any music. It turns out the the timing of changes of most music, the tempo, the events, the emphases, and the motion and color changes in video source fed through nVeil, whether a Toyoto commercial or a feature movie, is so similar that, watching and listening, the viewer often assumes they were created in sync. The graduate students assumed so.  It is the same thing that you might have noticed when listening to music while driving in rain, windshield wiper rhythm, or the turn blinker of the car ahead coming close enough to the music beat. That most incredible construction in the known universe, the human brain, is built to seek and find pattern. And it will make allowance for discrepancy, sure there is something going on. When the two get out of phase we look forward to them getting back together. So we think.
